AC Robotics Team


Saturday, May 19th, AC Robotics participated again in UC Davis CSTEM Day 2019, with 23 teams competing from elementary, middle and high schools.


ACMS and ACHS won a combined total of 25 awards! Despite the unprecedented difficulty of the challenges, they did an amazing job. Our students worked hard and didn't give up when things didn't go their way. They all succeeded with their amazing hard work and effort!   


This year, eleven NVUSD coaches participated to make this event possible: Jonathan Mao, Sabrina Lui, Denise Keller, Tammy Lee, Damon Wright, Scott Marsden, Y Vu, Alma Gonzalez, Ron Eick, and Stefani Williams and Lilliana Zmed.


Thank you to NapaLearns for their generous support of AC Robotics. NapaLearns provided buses to the event and funded many of the teams and video entries. They even supported other NVUSD schools in their first or second year of implementation so that other students will benefit from the CSTEM program.


Most importantly, thank you to the AC Robotics parents for their contribution. The AC Robotics program thrives because of the tremendous amount of support from the American Canyon community.

Ginger DunneNVUSD announced last week that Ginger Dunne has been appointed the new principal of Mt.George Elementary School, effective July 1, 2019.  Dunne has 23 years of teaching experience within NVUSD, teaching multiple grade levels at Alta Heights Elementary School. In addition to her wide breadth of classroom experience, Dunne has served in a number of leadership roles at Alta Heights, including School Site Council, Family Faculty Club liaison, and NVEA Site Representative. On a district level, she has extensive experience working with the Napa Valley Education Association and the District Negotiations Council and has a keen understanding of both the collective bargaining and the interest based problem solving processes. Additionally, she has served as both the Academic and Campus Coordinator for the Aim High Summer Program for the past several years. Her experience inside and outside of the classroom will serve the Mt. George community well.

“Ginger is a seasoned and accomplished classroom teacher, with extensive leadership experience, which will all transfer seamlessly into her new role as principal. Not only is she familiar with NVUSD but her ties go beyond the classroom, bringing a unique perspective that will support and inspire the students, families, faculty and staff at Mt. George,” said Dana Page, NVUSD Interim Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources.

“We welcome Ginger to the NVUSD leadership team, and we know that she will work very hard on behalf of the students, staff and families of the Mt. George community,” said Dr. Rosanna Mucetti, NVUSD Superintendent.

“I am thrilled about the opportunity to serve as the principal at Mt. George Elementary,” shared Ms. Dunne. Ms. Dunne will begin her assignment on July 1st and looks forward to working closely with staff and parents to launch an amazing new school year for Mt. George students.

Napa Valley Unified School District announced today it is launching a formal process in American Canyon to solicit concerns and feedback regarding the proposed new middle school construction in American Canyon. The announcement comes after Superintendent Dr. Rosanna Mucetti met with focus groups comprised of American Canyon parents and educators on Monday evening. During the meeting, district administration shared current district budget figures, enrollment data and population projections. The community input meeting will be held on May 20th at 6:00 p.m. at the American Canyon High School library.

Based on a current analysis of critical enrollment and population data, the district has illuminated how building a second middle school in American Canyon would require the district to make significant budget cuts to pay for the operational costs of running a second middle school, especially in light of current enrollment trends in the region. “Without new students enrolling in our district to generate revenue, the cost of running an additional middle school would require budget cuts, and unfavorable program reductions district wide,” said Dr. Rosanna Mucetti.

A new proposed middle school in American Canyon was initially included in a NVUSD Facilities Master Plan and budgeted in Measure H bond dollars back in 2016. However, based on declining enrollment and decreasing population growth in American Canyon, district administration and the Board of Trustees are evaluating whether new construction at this time is a prudent financial decision. For now, the district team has proposed to pause the construction process and reconsider the appropriate plan. A community engagement process is underway, and will allow NVUSD to share and discuss the district’s current enrollment and revenue challenges, and propose alternatives to building a new school to address some of the concerns with the current American Canyon Middle School campus.

“The NVUSD Board of Trustees and the District have a fiduciary responsibility to protect our financial assets and make sound and responsible budgetary decisions based on data, including managing our voter-approved Measure H bond funding with long term planning in mind,” said Dr. Mucetti.

The community input meeting will be held on Monday, May 20 from 6:00-7:30 p.m. at the American Canyon High School library. Translation and childcare will be provided. After gathering input from the community, NVUSD will make a formal recommendation to the Board of Education.

“We look forward to hosting this important community meeting,” said Dr. Mucetti.
