YSD Stories

  • Rocio Garcia is a Statewide Winner at the 47th Annual Superintendent’s High School Art Show

    Posted by Trevor Greene on 5/29/2020

    State Art Winner

    Rocio Garcia, an 11th grade student at Davis High School, won this year’s OSPI Staff Choice Award for her pastel and chalk artwork titled “Boys Don’t Cry.” Rocio is a student of Davis art teacher Carole Huls, whose students have had art entries advance to OSPI’s state show during three of the past four years. The Davis High School student’s work depicts an older boy crying and wearing a crown of flowers on top of his head. The piece will be purchased for the ongoing display of student art at OSPI’s offices in Olympia.

    In recorded comments that were included in OSPI’s Facebook live presentation, Rocio said: “I think that both genders should be able to embrace emotion without any fear of judgment from others. The flowers on his head were added later on to represent the view society has that showing emotion is a feminine trait, and that femininity is weak and fragile, kind of like the flowers on the flower crown. But I also wanted to make sure that the flower crown was composed of gladiola flowers, which represent strength.”

    Rocio added in her recorded statement: “I don’t think femininity should be viewed as weak or fragile.”

    The 2020 statewide show was scheduled to be on exhibit in OSPI’s facilities at the Old Capitol Building in Olympia from April through the end of May. Instead, all 113 pieces in this year’s show are being made available for viewing from OSPI’s Arts website at https://www.k12.wa.us/student-success/awards-recognition/superintendents-high-school-art-show-0.

    A recording of the 100-minute awards presentation by OSPI is available on the organization’s Facebook site at www.facebook.com/waOSPI/videos/vb.10150120134315113/709287502947413/?type=2&theater. (Rocio’s award is presented at about the 12:00-minute mark. The Honorable Mention presentations involving Berger start at about the 1:16:15 mark.)

  • AC Davis Film Production Class Nominated for a National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) Award

    Posted by Jeff Rist on 5/1/2020
    Film Production teacher Jeff Rist found out some amazing news about our Film Production class at Davis High School on April 30.
     
    The zero period Film Production class creates a weekly "newscast" for all the students. This newscast is call DNN, standing for Davis News Network.  The shows produced on December 13th 2019 and February 7, 2020 have both been nominated for a prestigious award from The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS).  Many people refer to this as an EMMY.  (but technically they don't use that name).  
     
    The chapter of the NATAS that we are in is the Northwest Chapter.  It covers Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming.  The NATAS has a High School student division with a category:  Magazine (News Magazine).  
     
    There are only four nominated entries in this category and the AC Davis Film Production class received TWO of the four nominations! 
     
    These students take a lot of pride in their work.  They start class at 7am.  They typically only have 4 days to complete a show.  Starting on Friday they see what stories are needed for the following week.  They begin recording, interviewing, editing on Monday.  Anchors are recorded on Tuesday and the final show is submitted to the instructor on Thursday morning for review. 
     
    Early part of June we will find out the winner of this award, this truly is an honor to be nominated!

District Announcements

  • Drive-In Graduation Events Canceled (5/26/20)

    May 26, 2020, Yakima, WA - At this time, the Yakima School District regrets that we have canceled drive-in graduation events for Eisenhower, Davis, and Stanton.  In recent communications with the Yakima Health District and guidelines set forth by the governor, we have determined that any celebration, other than virtual, is highly unlikely. The District, in conjunction with high school leadership at Eisenhower, Davis, Stanton and Yakima Online, will not facilitate or support a drive-in or virtual watch party, due to the growing concern of the number of infections in Yakima County and our lingering Phase 1 reopening status.

    While the district is still hopeful that a June 13 procession down Yakima Avenue to honor our graduates could happen, there are growing doubts, due to the status of Yakima County as a COVID-19 hotspot. This processional is something that we know our graduating seniors deserve but it may not be possible. We hope to provide updated information on the possibility of the June 13 processional on June 1.

    Class of 2020 Seniors – please check your specific high school’s website for more graduation details. www.YakimaSchools.org

  • June 17 is the last day of school for YSD students

    According to guidance from OSPI, unless districts can show that student learning was NOT impacted by the emergency closures (either loss of instructional days, loss of instructional hours per day, or both) districts are required to add five (5) days at the end of the school year. For the Yakima School District, that means June 17th will be the final day of distance learning for the 2019-20 school year. Support will be available to students via distance learning through June 17.

  • Be Counted! 2020 Census

    Census 2020 The census is a way for our community to seek the necessary financial support from the government that it needs.  Our schools depend on the census count for accurate program funding. In mid-March, you will receive an invitation to participate in the census from the Census Bureau. Be sure to count everyone in your household - even infants.  Responding to the census is the law, however, it is against the law for the Census Bureau to inquire about personal information such as immigration status.  It is illegal for the Census Bureau to pass on your contact information to other government entities. They use your contact info, such as your name and address, to know if you have already been counted. Once you have responded, you will no longer receive notices from the Census Bureau and a census worker will not come to your home.  If you have any questions, we have put together videos and information for you online at www.YakimaSchools.org/2020census
