Hello, Analy Community—

In addition to the excitement of the field trips, unusual schedules, assessments, and awards events that characterize the end of the school year, there are many other activities that make campus feel different this time of year. Here are a couple just from this morning:

  • Our amazing culinary program received recognition from Senator McGuire for their impressive win of the Sonoma County Career Technical Education Foundation's "Spark the Future" competition.

  • Our equally amazing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Coordinator, Anita Sandwina, is busy installing a "Peace Path" at multiple locations around campus.

If you haven't been on campus lately—come visit! There are SO many opportunities to get involved.

Chuck Wade, Principal

Some highlights from our successful Empty Bowls event

Spark the Future Event

The Best Buddies Prom was April 6th. Participating high schools included: Analy High School, Montgomery High School, Santa Rosa High School, Windsor High School, Petaluma High School and more. This special event was designed to ensure that our youth living with special needs have the opportunity to enjoy a memorable prom experience. Many special needs students are unable to attend the school's regular prom due to the need for additional supervision, accommodations and more. At the Best Buddies Prom, attendees had exclusive access to Chuck's Bowling, Sky Zone Trampoline Park, Game-On Arcade, and so much more. It's was an evening dedicated to celebrating friendship and inclusivity, creating lasting memories for all who attend.

Please congratulate the band and orchestra students on a job well done.

On April 10th we had our second annual Only in West County short film event! Only in West County is a cross-collaboration between students of “Film, Literature & Media”, “Advanced Video”, and Work-Based Learning.  Our students created 14 short (approx. 5-minute) films that were shown on the big screen - thank you to Rialto Cinemas!

We are very proud of our creative student filmmakers for their perseverance through this lengthy project that embodies our Portrait of Graduate goals.  

In closing, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to Rialto Cinemas, Brown Barn Films, Cynthi Stefenoni, and LINK CREATIVE for their amazing support of our students, and special thanks to Michelle Pattee for beautifully capturing our event! And of course congratulations to our Amazing Analy Students for their achievement!

On April 18th, Susan Lieu, performer/playwright/activist and author of her new memoir The Manicurist’s Daughter, visited Analy to do a Q&A with students and staff in the library about her new book. She then worked on dramatic acting with Analy acting students. Ms. Borgeson’s class had just viewed Susan’s show, 140 LBS. 

On April 26th, the Analy library hosted the second Big Film and Lit Pitch Off (formerly SparrowCon). Throughout the day, Mr. Myers’s Film and Lit students pitched film adaptation ideas of books they’d chosen to read in groups. Each student had a different role at their “studio” ranging from producers and directors to a marketing and promotion team. Work-Based Learning Coordinator Stacy Fortin recruited incredible judges with backgrounds in film, TV, writing, marketing, and music that gave students feedback throughout the day. Students received high praise from the judges for their creative work. Ultimately, Crow’s Eye Productions won the Pitch-Off for their work on Holly Jackson’s A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder.  The winners get their names engraved on the trophy and free movie passes generously donated by The Rialto Theater
