Student Core Survey
St. Baldrick's Foundation came to Millikan on March 17 to support childhood cancer research. Check out the brave students and staff that shaved their heads in solidarity with the children who lose their hair during cancer treatment.
In March, six of Ms. Valdez's Virtual Enterprise students traveled to Oakland, CA to participate and compete with over 60 other firms from across the nation at the Bay Area Trade Show & Entrepreneurship Conference. Students from both DonutLand and Coastal Express entered the HR Scenario, Elevator Pitch, Logo Design & Website competitions. Though they didn't bring home any trophies, the students managed to make over $35,000 in sales for each of their firms. Despite unfavorable weather conditions, they still had so much fun touring San Francisco and exploring Alcatraz.
Millikan students experienced the Rachel's Challenge assembly on February 1. It was followed up with classroom discussions to enhance the message of the impactful program. Rachel Scott was the first student killed in the Columbine High School shooting in 1999. Darrell Scott, Rachel's father, established Rachel's Challenge to perpetuate his daughter's example and the two-page "Code of Ethics" she wrote a month before her death. Click here for more information about Rachel's Challenge.
Some of our students wrote essays to illustrate what they learned about themselves and others after attending the assembly. Read one of the essays here.
To honor Rachel's altruistic beliefs of friendship and acceptance for all, our MHS Best Buddies Club members signed a pledge accepting all five of Rachel's challenges.
