Recently, the SMUHSD and the Via Heart Project installed the final automated external defibrillator (AED) at Hillsdale High. Placement of this final AED completed the school district’s mission to create a Heart Safe Campus, where access to defibrillation is within four minutes of every student on campus. The project was spearheaded by local parent and activist Erica Lyons and funded by a $52,000 grant from the Peninsula Health Care District to Via Heart Project to purchase 16 AEDS and provide American Heart Association CPR and AED training for over 200 faculty.

Stanford Image for Article re Mental Health Conference.jpgKathryn DeWitt, 2013 Aragon graduate, and Elizabeth Li, 2014 San Mateo High Graduate, were two of the presenters at the 2016 Adolescent Mental Wellness Conference sponsored by Stanford Children’s Health. They both shared their personal experiences and how they have committed to change the way that the world discusses mental health. Kathryn is now majoring in Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania and is the Co-President of “Active Minds Penn,” which promotes mental health awareness and provides information regarding resources to her college peers. Elizabeth, who is now pursuing a double major, Public Health and Media Studies, at University of California, Berkeley, serves as a Peer Adviser at the school undergraduate advising office. We are happy to see how SMUHSD graduates are taking initiative in making the world a better place. Photo from Stanford Medicine's Aug. 23, 2016 online publication, Scope.

Isabelle_Jefferson Award-081616-CP0339.jpgBHS junior Isabela Acenas was honored for her dedication to community service at the SF Giant's Home Plate Ceremony on August 16th. Isabella was honored for her outstanding work both in school, our local, and international communities. In addition to being a dedicated and strong student academically, Isabela is both active in school and community leadership and volunteer activities. After agreeing that increased outreach to students was needed to help spread awareness about service opportunities, Isabela created a PAWS (People Action Work Service) Volunteer Newsletter. Isabela has taken her passion for helping others to an even greater level by forming her own charities aimed at assisting both orphans and youth in the Philippines. To get the full picture of Isabela's work, please see Isabela's Blog and be sure to check out each tab. Isabela was nominated by her peers and was also awarded a Jefferson Service Award in 2015.
