GAPS Recognizes National Hispanic Heritage Month / GAPS reconoce el Mes Nacional de la Herencia Hispana

Posted on: September 15, 2021

Hispanic Heritage Month Poster

To recognize National Hispanic Heritage Month, GAPS Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) department is hosting a series of district-wide programming including three virtual keynote speakers. Latinas/os/x in Albany comprise roughly 13% of the city’s population, and the GAPS school community has over 21% students who identify as Latina/o/x. The demographic in GAPS is greater than what is reflected in our Albany community, and we as a district want to recognize the diversity GAPS represents through educational programming for our schools and community.

We are welcoming Dr. Jesus Jaime-Diaz from the University of Arizona, Gerardo Ochoa from Linfield University, and presenting our own EDI Director, Javier Cervantes to speak on subjects that will build knowledge and understanding of the varying identities and labels ascribed to Latinas/os/x in the United States. 

West Albany and South Albany High Schools will have displays demonstrating Hispanic culture open in the school buildings throughout the month. Many GAPS art classes and libraries will also recognize Hispanic Heritage Month through projects and book displays. 

This month’s programming has been a district-wide effort from many staff members to commemorate the contributions of Latinas/os/x in our community. GAPS wants to thank our community partners, Albany Public Schools Foundation and Central Willamette Credit Union, for funding our keynote speakers.

All presentations will be recorded and available on our website under the EDI webpage.

The Zoom information is the same for all three virtual presentations.

Mes nacional de la Herencia Hispana

Para reconocer el Mes Nacional de la Herencia Hispana, el departamento de Equidad, Diversidad e Inclusión (EDI) de GAPS está organizando una serie de presentaciones para todo el distrito que incluye tres oradores principales virtuales. Las latinas / os / x en Albany comprenden aproximadamente el 13% de la población de la ciudad, y la comunidad escolar de GAPS tiene más del 21% de estudiantes que se identifican como latinas / o / x. La demografía en GAPS es mayor de lo que se refleja en nuestra comunidad de Albany, y nosotros, como distrito, queremos reconocer la diversidad que representa GAPS a través de la programación educativa para nuestras escuelas y comunidad.

Damos la bienvenida al Dr. Jesus Jaime-Diaz de la Universidad de Arizona, Gerardo Ochoa de la Universidad de Linfield, y presentamos a nuestro propio Director de EDI, Javier Cervantes para hablar sobre temas que desarrollarán el conocimiento y la comprensión de las distintas identidades y títulos atribuidos a las/os latinas / os / x en los Estados Unidos.

Las escuelas preparatorias de West Albany y South Albany, tendrán exhibiciones que demuestren la cultura hispana abiertas en los edificios escolares durante todo el mes. Muchas clases de arte y bibliotecas de GAPS también reconocerán el Mes de la Herencia Hispana a través de proyectos y exhibiciones de libros.

La programación de este mes ha sido un esfuerzo de todo el distrito por parte de muchos miembros del personal, para conmemorar las contribuciones de Latinas / os / x en nuestra comunidad. GAPS quiere agradecer a nuestros socios comunitarios, la Fundación de Escuelas Públicas de Albany y Central Willamette Credit Union, por financiar a nuestros oradores principales.

Todas las presentaciones se grabarán y estarán disponibles en nuestro sitio web bajo en la  página de EDI.

La información de Zoom es la misma para las tres presentaciones virtuales.

Join the RedHawks Flight Club!

Posted on: September 2, 2021

RedHawks Flight Club

We would love for you to consider supporting our RedHawks Flight Club!

There is tremendous value and savings associated with these memberships. 

The Flight Club exists to positively impact the students of SAHS by promoting excellence in extracurricular activities. In short, the Flight Club believes that great programs build great kids.

Memberships are available at $75 (Launch), $150 (Fly) and $300 (Soar) levels this year. Since our student-athletes will be able to participate in sports and activities this year, the RedHawks Flight Club is once again offering free admission passes with membership purchases that are good for free admission to regular season home games and activities for the entire school year.

The value of these passes has never been higher as entry fees to home games have been raised to $8 per person. For example, if you were to buy a Fly level membership for $150, you would receive two free admission passes that are valued at up to $320 each ($640 total) for the school year. Another example would be if parents of a girls or boys basketball player purchased the Fly level membership for $150 and only used it for the basketball home games, they would save $176 in entry fees. The value of these passes are amazing!

Your participation is important because it will be one of the factors in determining how much funding our programs receive from the organization. Plus, as a Flight Club member you can receive some great RedHawks gear (RedHawk Flight Club Tumbler, Lanyards, stickers and license plate frames). Over the last two years, the Flight Club has granted over $17,000 to different extracurricular programs. With your support, they are hoping to do much more this year.

Memberships can be purchased on their website at www.GoRedHawks.org. Thank you for supporting our programs and the RedHawks Flight Club!
