Santa Clarita Valley International ‘SCVi’ Hosting Open House @ SCVi Charter School
Jul 25 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

BRING THE WHOLE FAMILY! SANTA CLARITA VALLEY INTERNATIONAL HOSTING OPEN HOUSE

Prospective students, their parents and members of the public are invited to attend a special open house at Santa Clarita Valley International Charter School on Tuesday, July 25 from 6 to 8 p.m. The open house celebration, held annually over the summer, brings the Santa Clarita community together for a fun night of tours of the TK-12 public charter school.

“During the past 10 years, the facilitators (teachers) and staff at SCVi have worked tirelessly to create a learning environment that values critical, creative thought and meets each Learner, or student, exactly where they are in their educational journey,” said Amber Raskin, who co-founded iLEAD Schools 10 years ago with veteran educator and principal Dawn Evenson. “Dawn and I are so proud of iLEAD’s success over the past decade, and we invite prospective Learners, their families and our community to learn more about what sets us apart.”

A cornerstone of SCVi’s educational philosophy involves project-based learning, an innovative, research-based method of instruction that requires students to tackle deeply engaging projects about real-world issues. They use critical thought, inquiry and synthesis to create solutions and present their findings to their peers. The school also maintains a unique emphasis on employing teaching methods that foster social-emotional development and personal strengths while encouraging social and self-awareness.

For Learners in upper grades, an academic and college counselor works hand in hand with each student to create a plan to help them succeed academically, emotionally and socially. SCVi is the only school in the Santa Clarita Valley to offer the rigorous International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Programme for learners in their junior or senior year of high school. SCVi also offers Innovation Studios, a unique opportunity for Learners from sixth through 12th grades that leverages technological and human resources to create a hybrid learning environment. Learners choose their method of engagement with the course material and hands-on, cross-curricular learning experiences that offer meaningful connections to relevant real-world applications.

The school offers a high-quality arts and theatre program for all grade levels (including transitional kindergarten).  It maintains the philosophy that arts education is an integral part of developing the whole child and incorporates principles of project-based learning into dance, music, theatre, media and visual art.

Sports are offered from kindergarten through 12th grade, with Upper School teams participating in the CIF Omega League. The young athletes can play basketball, soccer, flag football, volleyball, cross-country, softball, baseball, golf, and equestrian teams.

PARENTS: Registering your child at SCVi is quick and easy: simply visit https://ileadsantaclarita.org/intent-to-enroll/ and fill out the form.  You’ll receive an email from the SCVi registrar with further instructions, and can then complete the registration process by either uploading your documents online or walking them into the SCVi main office at 28060 Hasley Canyon Road in Castaic.  Staff are onsite all summer to answer your questions, give tours, and accept your registration forms!

Friday & Saturday at 8:00 pm, Sunday at 2:00 pm

Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center, 3050 Los Angeles Ave in Simi Valley

 

Presented by Actors’ Repertory Theatre of Simi. Billy Elliot tells the story of a young boy from a coal mining village in northeast England who transcends class and circumstance to become a ballet star. The musical is set against the backdrop of the 1984-5 miners strike, which tragically affects the whole village. Billy is looked after by his father, brother, and grandfather, after his mother’s death a few years earlier. His dad and brother are totally against the idea of him learning to dance but Billy finds himself drawn towards the ballet world. As a result, Billy is forced to take his boxing lesson money and use it secretly for dance lessons from local dance teacher Mrs. Wilkinson. She quickly notices that Billy is a prodigy and takes him under her wing. Soon, despite his family’s resistance, Mrs. Wilkinson manages to get Billy an audition with The Royal Ballet School in London. The village learns to overcome their ill-founded prejudices and, along with Billy’s father, come around to support Billy’s dream to become a dancer as Billy defies the odds and is finally accepted into The Royal Ballet School.

In addition Kiki will reflect on his television work in “The Legend of Davy Crockett”, “The Beverly Hillbillies” and “Barnaby Jones”. With heartfelt love from daughter to father, Kiki remembers her dad, singing beloved songs from Buddy’s film career, accompanied by premier jazz musicians Jeff Colella (piano), Granville “Danny” Young (bass), and Kendall Kay (drums). VIP Tickets are $50 and include a free glass of wine before the show as well as admission to a personal reception with Kiki following the event.

Billy Elliot tells the story of a young boy from a coal mining village in northeast England who transcends class and circumstance to become a ballet star. The musical is set against the backdrop of the 1984-5 miners strike, which tragically affects the whole village. Billy is looked after by his father, brother, and grandfather, after his mother’s death a few years earlier. His dad and brother are totally against the idea of him learning to dance but Billy finds himself drawn towards the ballet world. As a result, Billy is forced to take his boxing lesson money and use it secretly for dance lessons from local dance teacher Mrs. Wilkinson. She quickly notices that Billy is a prodigy and takes him under her wing. Soon, despite his family’s resistance, Mrs. Wilkinson manages to get Billy an audition with The Royal Ballet School in London. The village learns to overcome their ill-founded prejudices and, along with Billy’s father, come around to support Billy’s dream to become a dancer as Billy defies the odds and is finally accepted into The Royal Ballet School.

“California’s Deadliest Earthquakes, A History” AT THE NEWHALL LIBRARY @ Old Town Newhall Library
Aug 12 @ 2:00 pm

CALIFORNIA’S DEADLIEST EARTHQUAKES

Author and Historian: Abraham Hoffman
Will give a talk on his new book:
“California’s Deadliest Earthquakes, A History” AT THE NEWHALL LIBRARY

The Santa Clarita Valley Historical Society will be hosting Abraham Hoffman, who will give a talk on his new book about the history of California earthquakes:
” California’s Deadliest Earthquakes, A History “. The talk will be given at 2 pm on Saturday, August 12, 2017, at the Old Town Newhall Library, 24500 Main St., in Newhall, California.

Home to hundreds of faults, California leads the nation in frequency of earthquakes every year. Despite enduring their share of the natural disasters, residents still speculate over the inevitable big one. More than three thousand people lost their lives during the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. Long Beach’s 1933 earthquake caused a loss of nearly $50 million in damages. And the Northridge earthquake injured thousands and left a $550 million economic hit. Historian Abraham Hoffman explores the personal accounts and aftermath of California’s most destructive tremors.

Dr. Abraham Hoffman was born in Los Angeles and attended Los Angeles City College and received B.A. and M.A. degrees from Los Angeles State College (now California State University, Los Angeles). He earned his doctorate in History at UCLA. Dr. Hoffman taught in Los Angeles schools for more than thirty years and has also been an adjunct professor at Los Angeles Valley College since 1974. He serves on the board of editors for Southern California Quarterly, reviews books, and contributes articles to history publications. His books include “Unwanted Mexican Americans in the Great Depression: Repatriation Pressures, 1929-1939“, “Vision or Villainy: Origins of the Owens Valley-Los Angeles Water Controversy” and “Mono Lake: From Dead Sea to Environmental Treasure“. In addition to being a member of the Los Angeles City Historical Society, he is also a member of the Historical Society of Southern California, Organization of American Historians, Western His tory Association, Western Writers of America, and the Los Angeles Corral of Westerners.

The Santa Clarita Valley Historical Society is pleased to present Abraham Hoffman at the Old Town Newhall Library! The general public is welcome. Admission will be free. For more information on this and other upcoming programs from the SCVHS, please call Alan Pollack at 661-254-1275. Website: www.scvhs.org.

July 22 – August 27, 2017

Friday & Saturday at 8:00 pm, Sunday at 2:00 pm

Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center, 3050 Los Angeles Ave in Simi Valley

 

Presented by Actors’ Repertory Theatre of Simi. Billy Elliot tells the story of a young boy from a coal mining village in northeast England who transcends class and circumstance to become a ballet star. The musical is set against the backdrop of the 1984-5 miners strike, which tragically affects the whole village. Billy is looked after by his father, brother, and grandfather, after his mother’s death a few years earlier. His dad and brother are totally against the idea of him learning to dance but Billy finds himself drawn towards the ballet world. As a result, Billy is forced to take his boxing lesson money and use it secretly for dance lessons from local dance teacher Mrs. Wilkinson. She quickly notices that Billy is a prodigy and takes him under her wing. Soon, despite his family’s resistance, Mrs. Wilkinson manages to get Billy an audition with The Royal Ballet School in London. The village learns to overcome their ill-founded prejudices and, along with Billy’s father, come around to support Billy’s dream to become a dancer as Billy defies the odds and is finally accepted into The Royal Ballet School.

The Great Americans Shoot 2017, Sep 29-Oct 1 @ Oak Tree Gun Club
Sep 29 all-day

The Great Americans Shoot 2017 Aims for another Record-Breaking Event for Special Forces Charitable Trust and Other Military Nonprofits

Three American Military Heroes Join Patriotic Americans Outside of Los Angeles for Skilled Sporting Clays Shoot and Other Competitions as a Salute to Our American Warriors

NEWHALL, CA  – The Fourth Annual The Great Americans Shoot will take place at the Oak Tree Gun Club in Newhall, CA from September 29th through October 1st, 2017. 

Once again, the event organizers and participants are aiming to surpass the previous Great Americans Shoot’s fundraising record, making this year’s event the largest fundraising clay shoot in history.  This philanthropic sporting clay shoot benefits the Special Forces Charitable Trust (SFCT) (www.specialforcescharitabletrust.org) and multiple other military nonprofits that provide support to active duty Service Members, Veterans, and their Families.  Nearly $4 million has been raised for charity since the Shoot’s inception in 2014.

Half of the proceeds from this one-of-a-kind event will go to SFCT to support its mission to provide meaningful and sustainable support, through programs and services, to the United States Army Special Forces, past and present, and their Families.  The other half of the proceeds will be given to the designated charities of the top five fundraising teams.  The event is comprised of 20 five-person shooting teams that have each committed to raising $50,000.00.  Each team also includes a “6th Man” from within the Special Operations Community, who will join the shooting competition as an honorary team member.  In addition to the main event, there will be a 3-Gun Competition where lucky civilians will be able to support military charities of their choice and compete with teams of two “professionals” from the Special Operations Community.

The Great Americans Shoot 2017 (www.thegreatamericansshoot.org) is co-chaired by three American military heroes: former Special Forces Nate Boyer, retired Navy SEAL George Severence, and retired Marine Reconnaissance Master Gunnery Sergeant John Croft.  Each of these inspirational men expresses a deep appreciation to all participants and donors, who show incredible patriotism for our great country.

“You are the reason we are so brave,” says Boyer, who has had multiple deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan during his 10 years with United States Army Special Forces.  “We know that people like you have our backs while we are downrange, and that our families will be taken care of while we are deployed.”

This is exactly what these American citizens aim to do through this event; they fundraise to support these Soldiers and their Families as they sacrifice to protect the freedoms that we enjoy every day.

Severence, who served on the front lines in the War on Terror, explains:

“This is not like World War II, when just about every American family was directly touched by the conflict.  To all potential donors, many of whom have no direct relationship with the military, I say thank you for understanding what our families face.”

As conflict in the world increases, deployments have become significantly more frequent; yet, many Americans have been fortunate enough not to have had their lives directly impacted by this global change: this is because of the strength, sense of duty, and sacrifices of the United States military and their Families.  As Americans, it is our duty and our privilege to support them, though they do not ask for anything.

Croft, who spent 20 of his 27 years in the United States Marine Corps in Marine Reconnaissance, elaborates:

“We are trained to do our job and to be self-sufficient.  If there is an issue at home, we are not the types to go looking for assistance.  Organizations like the Special Forces Charitable Trust and other military nonprofits provide critical resources in a quiet and respectful way, and we are extremely grateful to them and their donors.”

“The Great Americans Shoot continues to grow each year, raising money and awareness for these deserving military nonprofits,” said David T. Guernsey Jr., Executive Director of the Special Forces Charitable Trust.  “We are proud to have great co-chairs like Nate, George and John this year, and we anticipate a record turnout.  It’s a wonderfully patriotic and meaningful way for people to say “thank you” to our military warriors and their families.”
