Proactive Registration takes the Learning Center by Storm

Over the course of two days, nearly 400 students participated in Cañada’s Proactive Registration event on Wednesday, November 18th, from 8 am - 8 pm and Thursday, November 19th , from 8 am - 8 pm. Proactive Registration is an organized and deliberate effort by various campus departments and programs, dedicated to assisting continuing students enrolled in Basic Skills and ESL Level 4 and 5 courses with registering for Spring 2016 classes.  Students received “wrap around” support designed help them to select their classes for next semester, resolve any financial and other academic holds, and get connected to resources such as Math Jam, Word Jam, and the Textbook Loaning Collection (TLC) .

One participant stated…
“This event was extremely helpful. Sometimes life gets in the way of getting things done so it’s helpful that teachers push students more by hosting events like this, they have no excuse not to register.  This is the first time in a long that I did this on time, not last minute.…

Pitt lands junior college combo guard


ByJohn Harris




Pitt added junior college guard Crisshawn Clark to its 2016 class following a recent whirlwind recruitment. The 6-foot-4 Clark, who attended high school in Huber Heights, Ohio, before settling at Canada College in San Mateo, Calif., selected the Panthers over Oregon, Loyola (Ill.), Gonzaga, Cal, Arizona State and Butler. “He's a great get for Pitt,” Canada College coach Mike Reynoso said Monday night. “He's a dynamic combo guard who shoots it really well. He's a high-flyer who rebounds and plays defense.”  In his first season at Canada College, Clark averaged 15 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3 assists. He shot 47.2 percent from the field and 35.6 percent from beyond the arc. 
Clark plans to redshirt his final season at Canada College and will have three years of eligibility with the Panthers…

Public volunteers needed to assist Scientists in their research on Olive Fruit Flies





Who: Cañada College Science & Technology Division, led by Adjunct Biology Professor Diego Nieto is looking for Peninsula residents to assist in its Citizen Science Project.

What: The Citizen Science Project will assist Cañada College in gathering data for olive fruit fly biological control.
Olives have traditionally been a valued community resource in the Woodside-Redwood City area. The olive fruit fly is a global pest, whose larval offspring (i.e. maggots) feed exclusively on olives. Unlike the small fruit flies commonly found in our kitchen that are only capable of depositing eggs in overly ripe or rotten fruit, the olive fruit fly targets ripening fruit to deposit eggs, which makes this robust fly especially problematic for olive growers.  As a result, nearly all unmanaged olives in San Mateo County eventually become inf…

District aims to rebuild Coastside adult education

District aims to rebuild Coastside adult education Efforts underway to restore Cabrillo adult school
(Source: Julia Reis - julia@hmbreview.com; from Half Moon Bay Review)
Coastside educators are working to restore the Cabrillo Adult School thanks to renewed efforts at the state level to better carry out and fund adult education.
The recession of 2008 led to the closure of adult schools throughout the state as school districts used funds that had once been dedicated to adult education to avoid making cuts to other programs. Cabrillo Adult School, which held classes at Cunha Intermediate School and Half Moon Bay High School, was closed at the end of the 2008-09 school year. Not long after, the Half Moon Bay branch of the College of San Mateo closed its office in response to cutbacks in the San Mateo Community College District. Since then, adult education offerings on the Coastside have largely consisted of English as a second language and computer literacy classes through Cañada College…
