New Temporary Business and Student Services Offices in October
The SMUHSD is saying “farewell” to its antiquated, over crowded facility and trailers, and saying “hello” to a state-of-the-art District Office scheduled to open in the fall of 2018. To make room for construction, Business Services and Student Services will be located in a temporary facility at 839 Hinckley in Burlingame starting in October. Business Services will relocate on October 7th. Student Services, including Special Education, will relocate October 22nd. See the flyer with complete details.

VIKING STUDENTS OF THE MONTH
MILLS FCCLA STUDENTS CALLA YANG AND NICOLAS AGUSTIN MEET WITH STATE LEGISLATORS
Nick Agustin ( Junior ) and Calla Yang ( sophomore ) participated in the Capitol Leadership Experience in Sacramento on February 5-7, where, in addition to observing Senate and Assembly committee hearings and floor sessions, they met with state legislators and staff to discuss the importance of Family and Consumer Sciences education and the career technical student organization Family, Career and Community Leaders of America ( FCCLA ). Students from throughout the state met with their own legislators to explain that Family and Consumer Sciences education provides skills that may be used to prepare for higher education or to enter the work force right after high school. Involvement with FCCLA teaches young people to be better parents, to be financially responsible, and to prepare to contribute to society as adults.
The Millbrae Lions Club and City of Millbrae sponsors an annual Youth-In-Government program to introduce young men and women between the grades of 8th to 12th to local civics and government in hopes of encouraging future community participation and encourage young people to become our future leaders. Each participant is given the opportunity to tour city hall and city facilities, meeting with the Mayor, council members, the city manager, and city department heads. Local government operates policy and politically different than state and federal government. Students will learn about how local government provides the essential services and how it affects the livelihood, health, and welfare of their community.
We will present each student with current real-life policy issues. They will research a topic, meet with department heads in consultation, and finally, use what they learned to research and analyze data then present and debate the issues at a simulated council meeting. The schedule is as follows:
Monday, February 27th - City Tour, Lunch and student prep day (all day)
Tuesday, February 28th - Attend and participate at an evening City Council meeting (7 PM)
Thursday, March 2nd - Participate in a mock council meeting (10AM-1PM)
Application due 02/22/2017
