Congrats to Kaycee Clark! The 4.0 senior was accepted into University of the Pacific's Conservatory of Music, one of the oldest and most prestigious music school's West of the Mississippi.

Honorable senior


 

Applause to Antioch High's Trey Hall, who has been named a Youth Hall of Fame winner for Contra Costa County. The senior, along with three others from across CCC, will be honored during a special supervisors' meeting on March 28 in Martinez. Trey won the Valiant Volunteer award. This makes back-to-back awards for Mr. Hall, who won Antioch Youth of the Year last spring. Go, mighty Panther, go!

Marvelous mat moves


Senior Kenny Lefin recently (at left here with captain Victor Ramos) entered the North Coast Section as an unseeded wrestler in a 48-man bracket and went on to compete at State. Lefin is the first state qualifier from Antioch High since 2012 and the 2017 BVAL champion.

Real-world connections


 

Nearly 20 AMS students visited Antioch High for a special event partnering with our Jewels of EDGE and female engineers. The 8th-graders did a small project, had lunch and talked with AHS students and the engineers. It was a great day for the Eagles, who will fly over to Panther Country next fall. Thanks to teachers Samantha Wilson and Henry James, our Jewels and work-based learning coordinator Stephanie Marple for the great day.

Mr. Panther 2017


 

Gary Wallace (here with escort Brenda Macias) was crowned
Mr. Panther for 2017. Rounding out the court were AJ Xaysana, Deontay Currie, Neel Sahota, Jacob Hines and Treyvon Hall. The king tradition was created by the Class of 1979 and is celebrated at the end of basketball season, while the school's homecoming queen is chosen during football season.

 


 

 

Campus construction continues

After an extended process, the Department of California State Architects has approved Antioch High’s next phase of updates and remodel. Construction of the new cafeteria (where the original office was located) and the 1100 wing (former library and classrooms) will start this month.

The 1100 wing (at the back of the school) will be transformed into a state-of-the-art Media Technology Center. Estimated to be complete by early fall, the area will feature green screen audio/video capability and modern technology classrooms.

In addition to a spacious cafeteria, the area will feature a wide open quad area with beautiful landscape. It is scheduled to be complete in the spring of 2018.

Our final construction phase will also include the highly anticipated aquatic swim center, and updating the final three hallways and classrooms in the 300, 400 and 500 wings.

With construction beginning, staff parking will spill over into the gym parking lot. Parents will no longer has access to that lot. Pick-up and drop-off are available in the student lot across from the big gym, and on 18th Street beyond the main office and Beede Auditorium.

“We appreciate the community support to improve the school facilities of AHS via Bond Measure B and your assistance with dropping and picking up your children in the identified locations during construction,” said Principal Louie Rocha.

Going to the next level



Feb. 1 was National Signing Day (when high school students sign a binding National Letter of Intent for college football.) Antioch High honored two Panthers moving on to the next level. In the fall, Isaiah Dunn heads to Oregon State University while Nate Jackson attends Wayne State (Nebraska). It was a packed house with family, staff and students cheering on the duo. Congrats to these wonderful young men and best of luck!

On the right path

 

Educators from across the United States visited Antioch High School's Linked Learning Pathways to gain more info about creating similar programs in their schools. About 80 participants toured classrooms with students leading the way. Said Principal Louie Rocha: "I'm proud of our students, staff and our campus. This visit was a huge success. I especially want to thank our student ambassadors from each academy who helped to greet our guests, escort them on classroom tours, and share in conversation. The feedback was all positive, and our guests were very impressed by our students and faculty."

From Panther to Crimson Tide


Michael Macor, The Chronicle

Najee Harris stays true to his word and our mighty Panther is attending Alabama. Harris recently completed his studies at Antioch High to be able to attend college now rather than in the fall. The top Panther football player also made headlines by being named Player of the Year by the San Francisco Chronicle and for taking the national stage during the Army All-American football game in Texas on Jan. 7. He was also recently named SportStars NorCal Player of the Year.  We'll miss this charming and talented student and wish him all the best.

Holiday pantry a big success


 

Antioch High's Warm for the Holidays event was wonderfully inspiring and joyful. It took a herculean team effort to give more than 120 families (650 adults and children) new books, coats, toys and food. Our young visitors played at the art station and took photos with Santa while their parents shopped. Nearly 100 student volunteers helped at each station and played personal shoppers to our guests. It was heartwarming. During the last few weeks, we had another 100 or so help organize, sort, pack and move an entire gym's worth of treats. There's a long list of folks to thank starting with Principal Louie Rocha, our staffers, AUSD and community including Antioch Rotary and more. It's a beautiful tribute to our giving campus and supportive city. #ThisIsAntiochHigh


 

Panthers' great season


The Panthers battled hard but fell short in its bid for the NCS championship title, taking second in the division. It's been a strong and exciting road for all. We're proud our team had such a successful season. The last time the Panthers were at this level was in 1977. Congrats to all the student athletes, team staff, coaches and all who cheered on our team.

Fabulous Follies

Antioch High’s music department hit it out of the park with its first Panther Follies last weekend. The cabaret-style evening featured Music Masters and the Show Choir performing numbers from “West Side Story,” “Cinderella,” “Wicked,” “Ragtime,” and “Kiss Me Kate,” accompanied by an accomplished pianist.
Choir director Sarah Phelan plans to make this an annual event.

Tatiana Mendez (escorted by Gary Wallace) was named homecoming queen with a first-of-its-kind announcement for Panther Country. Jim Harbaugh, renowned Michigan University and former 49er coach, read the big reveal during halftime. The princess court featured Savannah Vanderzwan (Cole Kies), Catherine Quecan (Jeromy Quach), Esmeralda Fregoso (Bernado Mendoza), Kathy Valenciano (Carlos Lopez) and Chelsea Abillano (Michael Sellers). The Panthers beat the Liberty Lions, after an hour brown out in the stadium, 62-25.

Hot diggity dog!

Runners + Dogs = Fun! Antioch High is thrilled about its new Panther Tails program, which buddies up the cross country team and Antioch Animal Shelter dogs. Students loved the pups; the dogs got fresh air and exercise; and adoption may increase. Thanks to Chief Allan Cantando and Principal Louie Rocha for green lighting this right out of the gate, and to Coach Lisa Cuza for saying yes! It's community engagement at its best. KTVU recently did a live feed on this exciting program on Sept. 22 http://www.ktvu.com/news/207212026-video#.V-SJuqnv7R4.facebook, and aired an additional segment on this engaging program.  #ThisIsAntiochHigh

   

 

Raging rally

Panther Country kicked it into high gear with a fun-filled rally and a crushing football game against Lincoln. Our championship team won the game 67-38! On Sept. 16 the Panthers are at Rancho Cotate and on Sept. 23, we'll be at De LaSalle. Our championship team returns home on Oct. 7 against Freedom High.

Antioch High + Hollywood

AHS grad and "Sharknado" director Anthony Ferrante (second from left) shot his new thriller at several spots on our campus over the weekend. He also spoke with the 30-some students who joined the fun and cast them in various background shots. It was an interesting and hands-on experience, especially for our Media-Tech Academy students. For the next couple weeks, Ferrante and his crew will be filming around Antioch - a little tribute to his hometown.

Welcome to Panther Country

We're happy to welcome our new and returning students to Antioch High, home of the Panthers. Built in 1955, our school has a long history of pride, spirit, academic and athletic excellence and strong community. We're in the midst of renovating our 60-year-old school. The current updates are the cafeteria and quad area (near the office), the 1100 wing transformation into a media and tech center and completion of updating all classes and halls. Last year we saw the beautiful unveiling of our fabulous Eells Stadium and the office-library building. Here's wishing you a fantastic school year.
Go, Panthers!

 

 

New vice principals

Antioch High has two new vice principals joining our winning team. Nadia Kline-Taylor will oversee the environmental academy while Stephon Cartwright takes on LEAD.
We welcome this fresh duo to Panther Country!

 

Goodbye, office

Antioch High's original 1955 office was taken down in early August to make way for a spacious cafeteria and inviting quad area. The modernization of those two areas is set to be done by late 2017. Also, the entire 1100 hall and vintage library will be transformed into a media center, while the remainder of the halls and classrooms will be finished. Those upgrades should be complete by spring of 2017. The campus-wide renovation is made possible by voters passing Bond Measure B.

Congrats to the Class of 2016!

Michigan U leads camp

MichCamp8.jpg
 

Jim Harbaugh and his Michigan University coaching team held a football camp at Antioch High for some 200 student athletes on June 23. The two-hour event was held on Eells Field with parents and Harbaugh fans in the bleachers. The top-notch camp featured an array of drills, tips and hands-on work with the coaches. Members of Antioch High's championship football team were on hand, as well as coaches including head coach John Lucido and principal Louie Rocha. The
No. 1 recruit in the nation, AHS running back Najee Harris, worked one-on-one with a Michigan coach during the session.

Panther Parade

Panther Parade May 2016 080.JPG
 

Despite just a few days to organize, the debut of Antioch High's Senior Panther Parade was a hit. Some 40 Panthers enjoyed rock-star status and the elementary students at Belshaw, Fremont, Kimball and Marsh were overjoyed to see the
soon-to-be grads in caps and gowns. Staff and students cheered and clapped as our seniors walked around. It was a great way for the Class of 2016 to see where they begin 13 years ago and for the elementary students to make these connections and be inspired to continue to the graduation finish line.
A new Antioch High tradition has been born.

Fabulous prom

BuddyClubprom.jpg


Antioch High held its first Buddy Club Prom, which beautifully mixed its special ed students with traditional learners. The prom, held in the school's vintage library, featured testimonials from mentors, awards, scholarships, food, photos and music. The club is the brainchild of junior Savannah Vanderzwan, who came up with the concept so that "all students" could enjoy the high school experience. In addition to the weekly meetings, the club has had several special gatherings and field trips. Teacher Andy Lemos is the advisor. Principal Louie Rocha was impressed by the students who coordinated the event and said "I'm proud to be the principal of AHS."

       

 

Super scholarships

AHS scholarship2016.jpg
 

Antioch High hosted its annual Scholarship Night on May 10 in Beede Auditorium. The stage was filled with about 65 students, who received more about $72,000 in scholarships. Friends and family came out to celebrate the seniors, who were honored with about 125 scholarships by a variety of individuals, memorials, annual, alum, businesses and community. Special thanks to the Antioch Community Scholarship Fund committee, which worked tirelessly with College & Career lead Kashauna Clipps and Vice Principal Lindsay Wisely to make the event a success, and, to the Class of 1966 for its generous scholarships.

 

Big Blue pays a visit

JimHarbaugh Jan19 2016 021.JPG

 

Everybody wants to be part of Panther Country, including Coach Jim Harbaugh, who would love to have our Najee Harris become a Michigan Wolverine. Harbaugh paid a visit to AHS on Jan. 19 and meet with Harris (the No. 1 high school running back), along with Wolverine defensive line coach Greg Mattison, Jay Harbaugh, principal Louie Rocha, offensive coordinator Brett Dudley and head coach John Lucido. In mid-December Harris was visited by the head coaches from Notre Dame and Cal Berkeley.

We are the champions

Our mighty Panthers put up a tough fight against Foothill in the NCS semi-finals on Nov. 28. The Pleasanton team edged out AHS by 55-54 in the last minute of the game. One veteran preps sports editor said it was one of the "greatest high school games" he'd ever seen. The football team ends this tremendous season with an 11-0 record; the best since 1977.  We applaud the team and coaches for an amazing job, and students and staff for the fabulous support and spirit. Go, Panthers!

In 2012, our community showed its support by voting yes

on Measure B. We plan to honor your investment of our historic campus with a strong and vibrant modernization

of Antioch High over the next couple years. Our website via the RENOVATIONS page provides a variety of info - from detailed plans and drawings to the timeline of the changes happening here on campus.

 

Panther Pride!

BandWinners Oct2016.jpg
 

Antioch High marched away with a bundle of top awards at the recent Cupertino Tournament of Bands.
Up against 16 other high schools, this was the marching group's first competition of the year. And, they hit it out of the park by winning first place in three categories: Auxiliary, Percussion and Military Marching. We're so proud of our hard-working student musicians, including drum major Carlos Amaral, drum captain Gregory Lewis, and letter captain Mia Steinmetz, along with band director Mr. Kenan Baker. Big thanks to the Antioch Band Boosters Association for its help and support. Go, Panthers!

Panther talent


 

Our recent mini VAPA (visual arts/performing arts) was a big hit thanks to a great array of performances including dance, song and band, impressive art and tasty food. Our big VAPA will be in late spring and jam packed with even more fun.

Applause, applause

 


Cheers to Ms. Anne Swatzeel and Ms. Shira Sweitzer, shown here being congratulated by
Principal Louie Rocha, for being honored as two of the top teachers by the Antioch Schools Education Foundation's Mary Allan Fellows award event. Both English teachers were celebrated, along with 10 other AUSD educators, for their commitment, dedication and innovative spirit to their students. We're so proud of these Antioch High teachers! 

Mayor's Cup remains


October's Antioch vs. Deer Valley match turned out to be an exciting game with the Panthers trailing 19-8 with less than five minutes remaining in the third quarter. But, our team came through in a big way winning 44-19 and retaining the Mayor's Cup for the third year in a row. 

Outstanding citizens

 

Chamber3.jpg

 

This mighty trio was honored during Antioch's citizen of the year awards. Treyvon Hall, a junior, won the top youth title and $1,000 scholarship, while junior Savannah Vanderzwan was runner-up, earning a $750 prize. Senior Aimie McGoldrick was an honored nominee. Held at Lone Tree Event Center, the three were impressive, inspiring and humble. Big congrats to all!

Congressman visit


Congressman Mark DeSaulnier, along with former NFL players Akili Calhoun and Bobby Shaw, hosted a concussion awareness assembly for Antioch High athletes today in the Big Gym. Also in attendance were Antioch Mayor Wade Harper, school board member Debra Vinson and Dr. David Hong (all pictured), along with Mayor pro tem Lori Ogorchock and councilwoman Mary Rocha. It was a solid event loaded with info for our students.

 


 

A Panther first

During a special program on Oct. 7, AHS senior Najee Harris was presented with an All-American Bowl jersey by the
US Army. Only a select few high school players are invited to this prestigious game, which will be held in San Antonio on Jan. 7. We're proud of Najee, his work ethic and nice spirit.
