Goleta Valley Junior High School's doors opened in 1964 and its first class graduated in 1965. To celebrate, on June 10 the school community held a "Anchors Away Promotion Party" and 50th anniversary celebration.

The rain didn't dampen enthusiasm when the City of Goleta provided a framed proclamation from Mayor Paula Perrotti to the school's promoting eighth-grade students, parents, staff and the GVJH community.

To commemorate the event, a time capsule was assembled. It contained a Mariner yearbook, agenda, programs from school music performances and award ceremonies, a list of science fair winners, as well as P.E. attire.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
