🌟 Today, we honor the legacy of César Chávez, a true hero in the fight for labor rights and social justice. Born into hardship, Chávez's resilience and dedication led him to found the United Farm Workers movement, championing the rights of farmworkers through peaceful protests, strikes, and fasts. His teachings extend beyond labor rights to embody the values of education equity, diversity, and environmental justice — principles that are deeply aligned with our mission here at . 🌱

Let's continue to be inspired by Chávez's vision: a community that upholds equity, diversity, and justice for all. Wishing everyone a happy César Chávez Day and a wonderful spring break ahead! 💚

🌍Castlemont High’s Adventure in East Asia Begins! ✈️

Yesterday marked the start of an incredible adventure across East Asia for 15 students from Castlemont High School's Pacific Bridge Club as they head to Japan, Taiwan, and the Philippines.
For many of these students, it’s a journey of firsts: their first flight, their first time abroad, and their first step into a wider world. 🌐

🤝 Just last week, hosted a group of students from the Kanagawa School District in Japan - a perfect prelude to our students' own adventure. Stay tuned as we share their journey, from volunteering to visiting universities and soaking in new cultures. Our students are out there making proud!

East Oakland students from Castlemont High’s Pacific Bridge Club boarded a flight from SFO on Tuesday afternoon heading to East Asia for the adventure of a lifetime. For some students, this is their first time on a plane.

🌿✨ Big News, !

Last week, in partnership with Trust for Public Land and with the generous support of the Golden State Warriors and the Oakland Roots Sports Club, celebrated the grand opening of the newly revitalized schoolyard at Melrose Leadership Academy!

The project replaced the school’s 14,000 sq. ft. of asphalt with new trees, native plants, and a multi-purpose turf field/soccer pitch, alongside basketball and four-square courts. 🏀⚽️🌳 Our teachers are also excited about the new vegetable gardens and planting areas designed to boost environmental literacy among our students.

This marks the first of nine schoolyard upgrades across the District this year, echoing our commitment to providing safe, joyful, and sustainable play spaces for all OUSD students.

Swipe through to see the transformation and exciting meet-and-greets with powerhouse Festus Ezeli of the Golden State Warriors and superstar Etsgar Cruz of the Oakland Roots Sports Club. 🎉📸

On Friday, March 15, Life Academy hosted its 10th Annual Health Care Simulation Day for high school sophomores. "Sim Day," as it's also known, is a unique opportunity for physiology students to engage in hands-on learning guided by health care professionals in simulated clinical scenarios using Sim Lab mannequins, standardized patients, and medical lab reports.

Students worked in teams to collect data on cardiac patients by rotating through various stations, culminating in making a diagnosis based on their findings. The rotations that the 10th graders moved through included CPR and defibrillation, EKG, and
Stop the Bleed.

"What makes this day even more fun, is that the students are, throughout the day, gathering the same data that a clinician gathers through a history, physical exam, and EKG analysis," said Life Academy Teacher and UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Pediatrician Dr. Emily Frank. "During the last half day, they put it all together to diagnose their patient!"

Well done, future health care professionals!
