Looking for Solutions
Slauson students are involved with a unique project with Azusa Light and Water. Under the direction of teachers Jody Nolting and Laura Camarena, students are involved in a research project to determine what is the best turf for the Azusa area when it comes to water conservation. Civil engineering students from Cal Poly Pomona are advising the students on water usage, evaporation and turf grasses. In April, the students will present their findings to the City.
Heading into the Future
Seventh and eighth graders from Slauson School participated in the VIVA Technology Program which encourages students to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). The students designed rockets, a mechanical launcher and participated in a STEM Jeopardy Game. The program was possible through a donation from the Northrop Grumman Foundation. Northrop engineers worked with the students on designing their rockets, which had to accelerate into space and land safely with a parachute. The event included a parent night that included a hands-on project and information about required high school classes needed to major in STEM fields.

All students entering, advancing or transferring into 7th grade will need proof of an adolescent whooping cough booster immunization (called “Tdap”) for school in the fall. Pertussis is a very contagious respiratory disease that can be severe and last for months. The immunity received from either early childhood immunization or pertussis disease wears off over time, leaving older students and adults susceptible again to pertussis. Immunization with Tdap can protect students, schools and communities against pertussis.
