Yucaipa High School is offering incoming 9th grade students an opportunity to earn 5 credits for participating in our Summer Bridge Program. Students are being recruited at their middle schools and applications are being accepted. They will learn techniques to strengthen their writing, reading fluency and reading comprehension, building math skills and confidence. In addition, students will be exposed to project-based learning and school connectedness, which focuses on how to navigate the campus. They will focus on positive behaviors and decision making skills.
6th Grade Summer Bridge information can be found here!
Summer Bridge runs from June 13 to July 5. Classes run from 8:00 – 1:30, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Free lunch is provided. They will receive incentives for the regular school year and school supplies for free!
For questions regarding either of these two programs, please contact Julie Beck at YHS at 797-0106, ext. 1110.

On Wednesday, April 13, students were treated to some telescopic views provided by Mr. and Mrs. Wilcox. During the day, eighth grade classes had the opportunity to look through two special solar telescopes that allowed students to see the Sun safely. There was a large sunspot to view, as well as a few solar prominences. That evening, telescopes took in views of the Moon and Jupiter. Students and their families were invited to telescope night, which took place at the end of the Music department’s dinner event. Although the evening started out with a few clouds, the seeing conditions started to improve when the sun went down, allowing students and parents to view the First Quarter Moon through some telescopes, and Jupiter through others. Gloria said, “Tonight I went to Telescope Night. It was pretty cool. I was able to see Jupiter. It was honestly super a-mazing. Jupiter was HUGE compared to its moons. It was so pretty.” Shelby said, “The Moon looks way cooler in a telescope than in person because you can see a lot more.” Students in Mr. and Mrs. Wilcox’s classes had the opportunity to ﬁnd the Sun on their own for part of a lab experience later in the week. They used the school’s homemade telescope with a solar ﬁlter ﬁrmly taped to the end to get another glimpse of the huge sunspot.
