Today, President Trump is expected to end Deferred Access for Child Arrivals (DACA), which protects young people in schools from deportation. 

 

Community groups have been organizing a protest and a rally. The protests include a student walkout at 1:00.

 

While we respect the rights of individuals to demonstrate, and understand the feelings that can surface, these demonstrations should not interrupt the school day, nor will we tolerate disorderly conduct or vandalism. 

 

Students are expected to be in school, and walking out before the end of the school day will result in an unexcused absence. 

 

We cannot be responsible for the safety and security of students who choose to leave campus. While we are concerned about students walking long distances on busy streets and roads to participate in the protest, we will not provide transportation or chaperones to monitor students during the walk or rally. 

 

We want our students to express their opinions, but we ask that they consider other options for making their voices heard such as: 

 

· Write a letter to your legislator or other elected official 

· Attend a rally outside of school hours 

· Attend public meetings to voice your concerns 

· Organize a petition drive. 

 

Thank you for your cooperation.

 

Irene Cisneros, Principal

Felipe Beltran is an Atrisco Heritage Academy graduate of the Class of 2013.  After attending Oklahoma Panhandle University, he has returned to AHA as a Health teacher.  AHA had the chance to interview Mr. Beltran and ask what it was like to be back.

 

You are the first graduate of AHA to return and teach here. Describe what it is like coming back as a teacher.

 

It is an honor to be back to the place where it all began for me. It’s always been a goal of mine since I started college in Oklahoma to return to Albuquerque to start teaching and coaching. I'm excited to be back and give back to the community that made me the man I am today.

 

Do you think students will relate to you because of your alumni status?

 

I think the students will relate to me since I am from the area. I’ve taken the same steps most of them are taking right now. I went to Mary Ann Binford and Truman before coming to Atrisco Heritage. I know what these kids have faced, are facing, will face and I will be here to help them with anything that might arise.

 

How do you think the school has changed since you graduated?

 

The school has definitely changed for the better. For one it's finally complete! My senior year the PAC was still under construction. The school looks great.  A lot of cool feature have been added such as the flags in freshman building, the benches, etc.. The student life is also on the rise. There is a lot more school spirit which, as an alumni, is great to see because it shows the current students are trying to carry on what we started.

 

What will your focus be during your first year?

 

My focus during my first year is going to get the kids trust and just get situated as a teacher and coach. I am here 100% for the students but if they don’t trust me its hard for me to help them achieve their academic or athletic goals.

 

I know you played baseball at AHA. Will you be involved with the baseball team?

 

I will be involved with baseball. As a matter of fact, I have coached the B legion team the past two summers which has been a great experience not only to get my feet wet but also a way for me to get to know the players that hopefully will be making an impact on the varsity level in the next season or two.

 

Atrisco Heritage Academy welcomes Felipe Beltran back to Jaguar Nation.

For the first time in school history, tickets for an AHA dance will be sold online.  The Activities Office is working with Albuquerque-based Hold My Ticket as the sales agent for Homecoming 2017: Emerald City tickets.

 

"We went to online ticket sales this year to increase opportunities for students to buy tickets," said Jessica Martinez, Activities Director.  "Some suggested that two or three weeks at lunch didn't give everyone the opportunity to buy.  This way they can buy any time, day or night, for several weeks."

 

Tickets will also be sold in the Main Cafeteria the week of the dance.  The numbers, however, are expected to be limited.

 

"Selling tickets online is much more efficient than in-person sales, said Senior Class President, Joseph Barbara, "because there is less hassle and stress on student council to sell the tickets. Not only this but students do not have to wait in line for such a long time and waste their whole lunch and might not even get a ticket. This way the student can purchase the ticket at their own convenience."

 

Students will be required to show their AHA ID at the door for admittance and students from other schools must complete a GUEST FORM and present it at the door.  Students and guests are asked to pay special attention to the conditions page within the link.

 

Tickets have now gone on sale through Hold My Ticket.  For more information, contact Jessica Martinez, Activities Director, at 243-1458, extension 60002.

"The students with pride in who they are show us what it means to be from New Mexico regardless if they were born here or not," said Ms. Jurado. "They are planting the seeds of a new type of assessment that demonstrates that our students are complicated individuals, they are much more than a test score, who have much to offer the world around them."

Dear Students, Parents and Guardians:

 

Atrisco Heritage Academy High School was locked down for about an hour today after we got a tip of a possible safety threat. Albuquerque Public Schools Police and the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office investigated and determined that it was safe to lift the lockdown shortly before lunch, and school resumed as normal. Police will continue to investigate the threat.  

 

We take incidents like this seriously and we appreciate the cooperation of all students and staff during the lockdown. 

 

The safety and security of Atrisco students are always of the utmost importance. If you or your child hears of a threat that might affect school safety, we ask that you notify a school official immediately.

 

Thank you for your cooperation. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the school at 505-243-1458.

 

Sincerely,

 

Irene Cisneros

Estimados Estudiantes, Padres y Tutores:

La Policía continuará investigando la amenaza.  

 

Consideramos incidentes como este en forma muy seria y agradecemos la cooperación de todos los estudiantes y del personal durante el cierre. 

 

La seguridad de los estudiantes de Atrisco son siempre asuntos de la mayor importancia. Si usted o su hijo(a) escucha de alguna amenaza que podría afectar la seguridad de la escuela, le pedimos que lo notifique a un agente escolar inmediatamente.

Jaelynn Vialpando, known to her friends and teammates as Turtle, had five hits in a game vs Albuquerque High School on April 11th. Four of the five hits were home runs.  Both of those accomplishments are school records.  The four home runs are also a New Mexico state record beating the previous of three.  Her five hits ties for second most in the state.  In fact, Vialpando came within one home run of tying a national record of five home runs in a single game set back in 1977.  According to the NFHS (National Federation of State High School Association) website, Vialpando would be the 19th player in the country to hit four home runs in a single game.

 

"She not only started the game off with a bang," said head coach Mark Moziejko, "but continued it the whole game."  

 

The Lady Jaguars won the game by the score of 22-5 banging out 26 hits. Both are season highs.

 

"In all the years of coaching and playing that is one of the greatest performances I've ever witnessed. I was honestly at a loss of words after that performance."

 

The Lady Jaguars are currently undefeated in district play  They are the highest scoring team in the district and second behind only LaCueva in the state.  To this point in the season, the Lady Jaguars have allowed the fewest runs both in district play (14) as well as the fewest overall (106) in the district.

AHA’s Music as Literature class welcome two Beatles historians as guest speakers.  The conversations were held by video conference. 

 

First, the class welcomed Professor John McMillian of Georgia State University in Atlanta, GA.  Professor McMillian is the author of “Beatles vs Stones,” which, according amazon.com, in their editorial reviews wrote “In the 1960s the two biggest bands in the world—the lovable Beatles and the bad-boy Rolling Stones—waged an epic battle. “The Beatles want to hold your hand,” wrote Tom Wolfe, “but the Stones want to burn down your town.” Both groups liked to maintain that they weren’t really “rivals”—that was just a media myth, they politely said—but on both sides of the Atlantic, they plainly competed for commercial success and aesthetic credibility. In Beatles vs. Stones, John McMillian gets to the truth behind the ultimate rock ’n’ roll debate.”

 

Professor McMillian addressed the rivalry and friendship that existed between the groups.  He spoke about the public image of each group as well as the private demons that each faced.

 

On April 4th, MAL welcomed Larry Kane renowned Philadelphia, Pennsylvania news anchor and journalist and author, to speak about the 1964 and 1965 Beatles tours of the United States.  Mr. Kane started as a reporter in Philadelphia, PA, but in 1964, he was afforded the opportunity to be part of the press group accompanying the Beatles for their entire U.S. tour.  He later chronicled his experiences in the book, “Ticket To Ride” and “When They Were Boys: The Story of the Beatles’ Rise to the Top.”

 

In its review of “Ticket To Ride,” Pubishers Weekly wrote “…this is a fantastic insider's look at the cultural explosion that was Beatlemania. It helps that Kane was only 21 at the time (the same age as Paul McCartney); unlike "dull-witted" reporters whom the Beatles came to disdain, Kane quickly noted "their indisputable naturalness and, to varying degrees, the depth of their humanity and their lack of phoniness." In turn, the Beatles rewarded Kane with many in-depth interviews through the tour (60 minutes of which are included on an accompanying CD), which Kane skillfully uses throughout provide the Beatles' own insightful view of the ongoing craziness surrounding them, as they travel from one chaotic hotel and concert scene to another. This is the most detailed description yet of the Beatles' American tours, and one of the few books on the band written in the past decade that can be considered indispensable.”

Being nominated for Selfless Senior is an honor onto itself; however, being nominated by THREE teachers is special.  Clarizza Morales Chacon is a worthy recipient who was recognized by three teachers for her outstanding contributions her school, her community and the world around her. 

 

Clarizza Morales Chacon“There are a lot of people out there that do community service,” says Ms. Morales Chacon, who says she was both excited and emotional upon hearing the news.  “For me to be the Selfless Senior is like a great representation of other students that do community service and help their community.  It’s an honor for me to represent our school community and all my peers who make a difference in not just the school but also the community itself.”

 

Here is a sampling of comments made by her nominators:

 

“Clarizza demonstrates the quiet form of leadership that helps the overall organization without having to claim the spotlight,” said math teacher Dr. Joseph Jung.  “When she sees that something needs attention, it just magically happens without a lot of noise or attention.” 

 

Ms. Joan Leyba, chemistry teacher, explain, “It became evident very quickly that Clarissa was an exceptional young lady. Her notes were impeccable, lab reports were written with such detail, calculations were completed step by step and her conclusions were written with precision. Objectives were stated, results were well supported with data and her analysis connected her results and the purpose of the lab directly with concepts covered in class.”

 

Finally, Ms. Diane Russell, wrote about one of Clarizza’s many volunteer endeavors.  “Clarizza was instrumental in our family center receiving a 4,000 grant for a food pantry from the UNM Medical School Office of Diversity.  She helped write the grant and is looking forward to painting, building the shelves, and help stocking it through the Road Runner Food bank.”

 

Included among Clarizza’s many accomplishments and endeavors are:

  • member of Upward Bound UNM;
  • currently ranked in the top 25 of her class;
  • attended a symposium at Duke University for Minority Women in Science where she attended seminars on science careers;
  • has been with the MESA/Dream-Makers program for the last four years.  This year, she served as Co-President.  She has put in many hour beyond what is required to help the team get ready for yearly competitions by creating race cars, prosthetic arms or the Science Bowl competition in our MESA/Dream Makers club;
  • chosen to be in The Health Careers Academy program through the UNM-Medical School; 
  • president of the National Spanish Honor Society and a member of the National Honor Society at Atrisco;
  • participating in an internship at the UNM School of Dentistry;
  • an usher at her church, and helps with many of the events at the church;
  • attends events with Jaguars for Positive Change including visits senior living facilities where she helps the elderly;
  • first responder for the American Red Cross where she is certified in first aid, CPR & the AED.  
"I had the honor of visiting with Clarissa Morales this week to congratulate her as our recipient of the APS Selfless Senior Award," explains interim principal Irene Cisneros.  "She is an amazing young lady who 'loves to help anyone'.  Her internal instincts to be of service are special.  Her big ideas and bright smile lit up my office as they light up the classroom and I can see why she was nominated and selected."

Ms. Morales Chacon joins an impressive list of Jaguars who have been honored with Selfless Seniors awards.  She understands both importance and the prestige that comes with joining such an inspiring group.

 

“All the past winners are great leaders in the community, but I didn’t think that I could be seen as a leader as well.  I want to inspire others to continue to be their best and helping to make change.  That’s what being Selfless Senior means: you do something for someone else and impact someone’s life and you don’t have to let people know about it.”

 

Finally Ms. Morales Chacon understands the importance of building relationships and how that has helped reach the place she is in today.  Those relationships include the three teachers (Dr. Jung, Ms. Leyba, Ms. Russell) who nominated her.

 

“I’m very grateful and thankful for the relationship that I have created with each of them.  I want to thank them for believing in me and supporting me.  My high school and middle career have not been very easy and if it wasn’t for the support of my teachers and counselors and the people in my family who support me and believe in me, I wouldn’t be here right now.”

 

All the APS Foundation Selfless Senior recipients will be honored at a ceremony to be held in April of 2017.
