• Quarter Ends Wednesday

    The first quarter is coming to an end. There is still time to get your work in, and earn your eligibility for Honor Roll and second quarter sports participation. There is also the need for teachers to mark report cards, which is why it is a minimum day. We start everyone at school at the regular time (A period starts a bit later at 7:43) but we have no late start and no collaboration. And we need everyone here until school lets out at 1:54 p.m. Back to regular next week, so thanks for your attention to our special Wednesday schedule.

  • Artist of the Day: Trinity Kham

    Trinity’s craftsmanship is the focus . The armature for her 3 headed elephant is interesting to look at from all angles and is balanced and sturdy. She combines the Dia de Los Muertos tradition of alebrijes ( meant to represent soul guides) and her own background from Laos. The 3 headed elephant represents the 3 small kingdoms: Vientiane, Luangprabang, and Champasak. The mashup between our various cultures makes our Day of the Dead celebrations even more fun. You will have a chance to see it all on November 2 in the lobby of our theater as we put on a multi media extravaganza with music, art and elephants!

    It’s Alicya Estrada’s world, we are just living in it, the Spartan freshmen finished in second place in the TCAL golf tournament yesterday, first team all league and has earned a spot in the prestigious North Coast Championship for next week in Vallejo. A one girl team! We are Spartan proud! The boys tee off in the Spring and it has been over a decade since Pinole Valley has had a female golfer compete not to mention dominate, with the standout performance, Alicya has gone where few have before and earning a place in NCS represents a high water mark for all athletes. What a great story, and it isn't done being told

  • Artist of the Day: Vinson Duong

    Vinson Duong got this moody photo of his sister by shining light through a bottle of mouthwash in a darkened room. Here he is in his own words: On the first photo I used a bag of water to give a wavy water effect on the light . The second photo I used a sprite soda bottle to give off a faded green color on the light to the face. On the third photo I used a close up shot to show the effects of a spaghetti strainer and had a hole and line effect. For the fourth photo a toilet paper roll was used to have a hole effect on the face. Lastly picture it shows that I used a mouth wash to give a greenish cyan type color light beaming to the face

  • Artist of the Day: Lazario Lopez

    From Mr. Pinto's photography class came this classic The goal is to get students thinking about how shadow and light work together to create a dramatic image. Students were asked to experiment with a colander outside at different times of the day and observe the shadow effects. They were also asked to experiment with different forms of artificial light inside.Lazario took several shots of his father until he got this one just right with a cool pattern on the head. thanks Dad!

  • Artist of the Day: Maria Trujillo

    Maria Trujillo: Maria included an Art History lesson in her piece. The left , logical side of the brain is filled with homework and math formulas. The right creative side has works of art . Maria displays excellent craftsmanship as well as thoughtfulness. She included the 3D elements like the flowers and scattered them in the most eye pleasing way. Check out all of the classical art that she included while making this, it's like she created many mini-masterpieces while making her own. Looking forward to more great art from Maria and from Ms. Tremor's students.
