Eisenhower Sings the Praises of 2017 Senior Class

Photo taken by Career Center Teacher Nancy Samir Ibrahimi

Eisenhower has been on a big push to honor and push their students great accomplishments into the spotlight. If you get the text message updates from the schools ASB Department you would have been bombarded by not only updates on upcoming events but a constant flow of celebration messages on students being excepted into a wide variety of colleges. Some schools “say” that college is a desired goal of every student. At Eisenhower the embody the very traits that send a clear message that the school is proud of every students accomplishments.

30 students from Eisenhower High will be going to one of the largest colleges in the Inland Empire UCR Riverside. The top majors by a majority of the 30 UCR accepted student are: PreMed, Criminal Justice, Psychology, Nutritional Science, Biology, Business and Marketing.

Now the goal is to find ways to keep our young people in Rialto or at least keep them close to home. You see while these bright young people are off to seek higher learning in some awesome popular fields of study, what are we doing to provide great opportunities to bring their education and skills to businesses close to home. As it stands now Rialto leadership only cares to open opportunities for our young people to work in warehouses or at Super Walmart.

The question is how far will these parents allow the leadership of Rialto to sell away any opportunity for these young people to return home?

Congrats to all of the Graduating Seniors in Rialto.

Parents Concerned Over Traffic at Werner Elementary 

werner-elementary-banner

One of the most difficult issues to tackle in Rialto is traffic. Our schools fall victim to traffic issues more than other areas because of the flood of pedestrian traffic mixed with vehicle traffic. Community Advocates constantly harp on leaders slow response to community issues. Normally it takes tragedy to move leaders into action. Community leaders like David Phillips who is also running for city council have worked to move change before we suffer any tragedy. Below is a video of Rialto Unified School District Safety Chief praising Mr. Phillips for his work in regards to safety.

Werner Elementary has not been so lucky in the area of skirting tragedy in regards to traffic safety. Even though parents have been advocating for more safety measures the best that could be done was a public safety officer twice a week. Well that clearly wasn’t enough because on September 13th a parent was involved in a major traffic collision that totaled out her car. The accident was so severe that her vehicle was pushed into oncoming traffic nearly colliding with a big rig truck. The parents vehicle was a total loss and there were children inside the vehicle.

Werner Elementary has been impacted because they are located on a very busy street that has the following issues:

  • People use Rialto Ave as an alternative to Foothill.
  • The area is mainly used for industrial uses.
  • Heavy traffic from large amount of big rig truck traffic.

Reports are that the parents have been requesting a stoplight in front of their school but have been net with opposition. The claims are that the another stoplight would be too close to the stoplight at Larch and Rialto Ave. This made us think of last year when the Flores Park Community Group worked to reverse a decision to put in a stoplight between Linden and Cedar on Foothill Blvd. The community thought that the lights would be too close and create a traffic nightmare. The city moved forward anyway under the guise of SAFETY.

Now we have a safety issue and the city is saying that the situation can’t be helped. Parents have told us that Mayor Robertson have told them that the city didn’t want a school there but the school didn’t listen. The Mayor also said that there are already lights at Cedar and Larch and any other lights would be too close. We walked the distance between the light at Cedar to the middle light and the distance was 316 paces. What is ironic is that this is the same distance from Larch to the middle of the school 316 paces. What is ironic is that the Mayor would make such statements especially in an election year.

The parents have collected 540 signatures to show city hall that the community is serious about wanting a stoplight in front of the school. The parents were disappointed to find out that the city council meetings have been canceled for the month of October leaving them with no opportunity to reach out to there city leaders. They were happy to know that our commissioners are still working and plan to attend tonights Transportation meeting tonight along with Werner Principal Mrs. Roman. The meeting tonight is at 6pm at city hall 150 S Palm.

Dollahan Elementary Creates School Wide Cardboard Arcade

dollahan-arcade-day

Written by: David Phillips

The idea began with a young boy out in Los Angeles who created a Cardboard Arcade at his fathers Auto Part business. After watching the story Dollahan Elementary Principal Dan Husbands brought this idea to his staff. “At the first staff meeting this year before school started Mr. Husbands showed us the video on Caine’ Arcade. After we watched it we created our own Cardboard games which led to the whole school planning what you see before you today”.

One of the most interesting games of the day came from a 2nd grade student Xavier. With the help of his father they created a Skeeball game that used alot of recycled parts and had some very creative engineering on how to make the game work.

We got a chance to talk to the young mans father Brian who told us a little about who they came up with the idea and how they executed the final design. Xavier’s father is a College Professor and Basketball Coach it was great seeing a father being there to support his son.

The kids had a great time playing each others games and were truly inspired by the original Card Board Arcade constructed by Caine in Los Angeles. This event really showed how kids can learn through play even if they were not aware they were learning. This event also brought the community into the school to see first hand how intelligent these young arcade game creators were. What was missing were any district staff to see what the kids and school had put together.

Eisenhower Wins Over Rialto High School

eisenhower-2-still

On Friday night two Rialto rivals took the field to kickoff what seems to be a great season ahead for Eisenhower High School. Eisenhower coming off a bye week after splitting the two games of their post season came in to prove that new head coach Al Brown’s system was not only producing quality young men but a football team the is laser focused on one of the best seasons in a long time for the once famous school.

Eisenhower and Rialto were close during the 1st quarter but once the 2nd quarter began it became very clear that this game was pulling away from Rialto. The Score of 35 to 19 proved that at halftime that unless Rialto could slow Eisenhower’s momentum the gap was only going to get worse.

eisenhower-score

We spoke to Eisenhower Athletic Director Gilbert Pulido about how he liked the first half. Mr. Pulido said “he was very happy with what the team had accomplished and was wanting to skip halftime and keep playing so to not loose the momentum.”

The players proved that they were equal to the task and came out to start the third quarter like they never took a break. Standout Players were Wide Receiver #5 Nick Freeman finished the game with four touchdowns & Wide Receiver #7 Lamario Howard had two touchdowns. Quarterback Joel Ayala was masterful running the plays and dropping passes into the hands of his hungry Receivers. Number ten Sebastian Seguro had a masterful running touchdown that had everyone talking especially Wet Paint Larry that was talking to the crowds of people at the Rialto Family Festival today. He said “I was on the Rialto side of the field and #10 juked those guys and walked right in untouched.”

For Eisenhower this season has a certain set roadblock that they won’t have a home field to play on due to the construction. Local advocate and candidate for city council David Phillips is working to tackle this by making every game feel like a home game. Through promoting the game and reminding people what High School Football is really like when everyone is ready to have an awesome season.
