FAMM Gets Ready For College
College and career readiness has become a key priority for the MLK community. At King Middle School, we realize that we must provide our students with a wide array of services and support to help them meet their educational goals. Currently in the third year of existence, the Fun and Motivated Minority (FAMM) program at MLK, is making huge strides in preparing students for college and careers. College visits are important for FAMM students to gain awareness of the A-G college entrance requirements and for these students to learn about course selection in high school. On October 3rd FAMM took an educational trip to the lovely campus of UC Berkeley. Students were able to visit the 3-story library and several of the colleges that make up the university. FAMM students were exposed to the diverse world of what Berkeley as a university and city have to offer. Destiny Jackson observed, “One of my favorite parts of the tour was when we stood in the middle of the stadium in a half circle, and when we spoke it sounded like we were talking to the whole entire stadium.” Mauricio Palma said, “I learned that there are many majors to choose from. I love Cal Berkeley...GO BEARS.” Finally, Tony Reyes revealed, “I loved the school. I WILL graduate from Cal.” Overall it was an amazing experience for all the students and one that will be repeated at many other college campuses throughout the year.

HUSD administrators model life long learning
Congratulations to King's own Assistant Principal, Marlan Simpson, upon completion of his Master of Science degree from Cal State East Bay. Accompanying Mr. Simpson are current Chavez Middle School Principal, Sean Moffatt, who earned his Ed.D, and former MLK Assistant Principal Damian Mackey. They are proud to be Made in Hayward
King Middle School A.L.A.S students' art and research was displayed at the Pancho Villa Center in Downtown Hayward to honor Cesar Chavez and the United Farm Workers' Movement. The A.L.A.S. is made up of MLK's Latino students who have formed a club dedicated to celebrating all aspects of Latino culture and to learning about the contribution of Latinos. These students along with several other Hayward groups were involved in a community service project, and a Community Event at the Public Library on March 29th. There students shared their knowledge of the United Farm Workers' Movement and were invited to display their work in the Villa Center.

This month King Middle School kicks off a new campaign to celebrate and support educational excellence in Hayward. The goal is to showcase the achievements of HUSD alumni and bring the community together to increase the achievement of Hayward students. According to HUSD Superintendent Stan Dobbs, “So often we only focus on the negative, on what’s not working. The Made in Hayward Campaign focuses on the contributions of HUSD alumni and on generating community pride.” During the six-month campaign, which runs from January to June 2014, all stakeholders, including HUSD staff, parents, students, local businesses, and community-based organizations, will be asked to take the Superintendent Commitment Pledge to support students’ social and emotional well-being and academic achievements.
Once again, the mighty King Cobra robotics team has qualified to participate in the NorCal East Bay Robotics Championship tournament. The team showed excellent STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) skills. For the past two months, they have been working on their robot and preparing their project for the competition. On November 16th, the team competed at the Northern California Official Qualifying Tournament at Mira Vista School in Richmond. They demonstrated their robot design and programs and presented their project to the judges. At the end of the day, they won the third place in robot performance and received the Judges Award at the tournament. The team will advance to the upcoming FLL East Bay Championship and compete with 35 other teams in January.
