In the wake of dismantling Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, the Milpitas Unified School District wants to ensure our students and their families know their rights, and that we are here to support each and every one of you. Our District webpage has a “Resources for Immigration Support” section found at http://www.musd.org/resources-for-immigration-support.html. The site has been updated with even more community, legal, and educator resources -- available in multiple languages -- to better serve you and the needs of your family. The District will continue to post resources as we receive them to the this webpage.
Our very own 4th Grade teacher, Ms. Laura Polden, was not only honored as Zanker's teacher of the year but also the Milpitas Unified School District's teacher of the year! Congratulations Ms. Polden! We are so very proud of you! You can read all about her work with our students on our district's website.
The Great American Solar Eclipse of 2017
On August , Zanker students observed the Great American Solar Eclipse. Our Intermediate Science Specialist and a few classes were able to participate as citizen scientists and collected some temperature reading data before, during and after the eclipse. Some of the data collected has been sent to NASA where they have centralized all the data from citizen scientists from all over the world! Scientists at NASA will use the data to better understand the effects that solar eclipses have on the Earth. Zanker student scientists will be using the collected data for their first scientific investigation. Stay tuned to the Zanker Science Lab page for updates!
