Denair schools the site of documentary looking to capture rural teen life in America

The life of the rural American teenager will be captured in a documentary filmed in Denair, a project spearheaded by the town's high school principal.

Denair High School Principal Kara Backman hopes to shine a positive light on the community as well as her campus through the film, according to a press release on the project.

A team from GoodCity Concepts of Cleveland spent the past week following three students in the small Stanislaus County community to create the 10- to 15-minute documentary. The subjects — eighth-grader Connor Prock, high school junior Adrianna Snyder and senior Alex Flores — were selected as "authentic representatives of the broader student body and community," according to the release.

The production team followed the students to their classes and their homes, as well as interviewed their families, friends and teachers.

Backman anticipates the documentary will be ready by mid-summer and she plans to show it on the district’s social media sites, at student and campus events and at large conferences.

Community-Minded Lions Club Pays for and Installs New Scoreboard at Denair High Stadium

An enthusiastic group of dedicated Denair Lions Club members spent most of last Saturday installing a new scoreboard at Jack Lytton Stadium on the Denair High campus.

For some of them, it was not a new experience.

As far as anyone can recall, the previous scoreboard was installed sometime in the late 1980s or early 1990s, according to Lions Club President Jeremy Rowell. And some of the same Lions Club volunteers helped then as well.

“We have an old newspaper clipping showing Lions club members put up the old scoreboard about 25 years ago,” Rowell said. “Three of them in the old photo (Glenn Doerksen, Fred Zumstien and Gaylon Wade) were helping to install the new scoreboard this last weekend.”Continue reading at Denair

‘Blackout Night’ Looms for Playoff-Bound Denair

Back in Black is a rock anthem made famous by AC/DC long before any of the players on this year’s Denair High School boys basketball was born. But the title perfectly describes the scene that will happen tonight when the Coyotes – fresh off clinching their first playoff berth in seven seasons – return to their own gym to host Orestimba.

The atmosphere – like the classic song – should be rockin’.

Denair will forgo its traditional purple-and-white home uniforms to wear trendy black pants and jerseys on what is being billed as “Blackout Night.” Students, too, can get into the act with specially designed black T-shirts featuring the words “The Pack” over the top of a Coyote paw.

Coach R.J. Henderson said it’s the first time in his six years leading the team that he’s broken out the black uniforms.

“They were purchased before I got here,” he said. “We’ve never used them other than summer league. There are only nine of them. I thought about using them in years past, but we always had more than nine guys.

“The players are excited, I know. I expect the crowd on Friday could be our best ever.”

The fresh look comes as enthusiasm continues to build for the young yet seemingly fearless Denair squad, which has rolled to an 8-2 Southern League record with two regular-season games to go. The Coyotes have clinched no worse than second place behind unbeaten Mariposa (10-0), which comes to town Monday night.

More importantly, Denair has qualified for the Sac-Joaquin Section Division V playoffs for the first time since 2010-11. The Coyotes will find out next Thursday who they play in the first round, which begins the next night.

Denair punched its ticket to the playoffs Tuesday night with a dominating 71-49 victory in Gustine. Junior Drew Pritchard led the way with 28 points, while senior Dylan Mann chipped in 15 and junior Steffin Winston had 12.

Just as special as anything Denair did on the court was something the Coyotes, at the urging of Pritchard, did to create a once-in-a-lifetime moment for one of Gustine’s players.

The young man is a special education student who practices with the Reds, but rarely has a chance to play. Late in the game Tuesday, with the outcome already decided, the player got in the game. Denair’s players, knowing the circumstances, allowed him to shoot until he scored.

The result was a thunderous roar from the Gustine crowd – impressed both by the young man’s perseverance as well as Denair’s sportsmanship.

The next day, Denair High Principal Kara Backman received a text message from a number she didn’t recognize. Contained within the message was a video of the play where the young man scored along with heartfelt compliments and thanks from the Gustine staff.

“Kindness matters,” an emotional Backman told Denair school board trustees at their meeting Thursday night. “It’s something we teach our students at Denair. … I am so proud of them.”

Seven Denair High Students Honored for Language Skills


Seven students at Denair High School have earned prestigious recognition for their bilingual speaking and writing abilities.

Seniors Natalie Soto, Oscar Garcia, Alex Flores, Litzy de la Cruz and Daisy Lopez; junior Analdo Moreno; and sophomore Elvis Silva were awarded the coveted Seal of Multilingual Proficiency in a ceremony Nov. 1 at the Gallo Center for the Arts in Modesto. The designation will be specially noted on their high school diplomas, certifying that they are fluent in English as well as Spanish.

This important recognition helps graduates when they apply to colleges, compete for scholarships or submit job applications.

“This is a verification of their skills,” said Maria Olivas, a Spanish teacher and coordinator of the English Language Development programs in the Denair district. She also serves on the language committee run by the Stanislaus County Office of Education.

This year, about 1,000 students from more than a dozen Stanislaus County high schools applied for the Seal of Multilingual Proficiency. Of that group, 260 were certified as meeting the bilingual standards, according to the County Office of Education. More than 20 different languages were represented.

All students must submit an autobiography in English, followed by a 300-word essay in their other language on a designated topic. Those who pass the first step then went to the county office for face-to-face interviews in both languages. The scores from the autobiography, the essay and the interviews are combined to determine which students qualify for the seal.

“Being proficient in multiple languages enhances a student’s education and value in the marketplace,” said Tom Changnon, the county superintendent of schools. “Our economy is tied to that of other nations, and Californians who participate across international borders bring strength and potential to this state’s global enterprises.”

In the five years of the Multi-Lingual Seal recognition program, 23 Denair students have been awarded certificates.

14 Creative Seniors Put Their Own Mark on Denair High Parking Lot

Fourteen drab patches of blacktop at Denair High School were transformed Thursday into colorful personalized parking spots by a group of energetic seniors.

The students responded to an offer by Principal Kara Backman to all members of the Class of 2018. Seniors had to submit designs for preapproval by Backman and campus supervisor Melissa Treadwell. Having completed that process, Thursday morning was a time to paint, with an added bonus of an entire day away from class.

The school provided most of the paint, brushes and rollers, but students could bring their own colors.

Predictably, purple was a popular choice as the primary color or accent, though Courtney Prock’s space is a bright pink (her favorite color) and Madison Keas’ is orange (borrowed from the San Francisco Giants, plus her love of the Disney musical “Newsies.”) Continue reading “14 Creative Seniors Put Their Own Mark on Denair High Parking Lot” »

Denair Students, Staff and Community Members Inspired by Rachel’s Challenge Program

“Only kindness matters.”

At its heart, that is the message delivered powerfully, emotionally and respectfully Tuesday to Denair students, their teachers and parents during a series of presentations known as Rachel’s Challenge.

The nationwide program is a tribute to Rachel Scott, the first student killed on April 20, 1999, in the mass shooting at Columbine High School in Denver. Before she died, Rachel was a champion on her campus for forgiveness, love and compassion, often defending classmates who were bullied, taunted or teased by other students.

Though rooted in tragedy, Rachel’s Challenge has become a force for teaching children and adults. Since it was started by her family, the program has reached more than 23 million people. Continue reading “Denair Students, Staff and Community Members Inspired by Rachel’s Challenge Program” »
