Starting Wednesday, January 18th, we have a schoolwide Yondr challenge. As described last week during our Spring Reset Assemblies, we want every student to continue to remember their Yondr pouch everyday. Our goal is to have 180 passes or fewer from now to next Friday, January 27th. We would like to see fewer students in the Student Services and Main Office. We believe in you!

It’s CSM application season for seniors planning to attend College of San Mateo in the fall! On Wednesday, January 25th, we’ll be hosting a CSM application workshop in the library, followed by presentations from various CSM learning resources on campus to let you know what they have to help you succeed at their campus. This will be during tutorial and fourth period on Wednesday, so please stop by the library to begin getting set up for College of San Mateo! You can pick up a slip to attend from the Career Center or from Mr. Gil.
Senior Parents and Guardians:
As college decision letters arrive, we know that it can be met with a mixture of emotions. Are you wondering how you can best help your child in dealing with college denial letters? It's never a fun topic to talk about, but we hope to share ways to better support you and your child during this time. It's important to know when they might need help, ways to work through the sadness of the moment, and what to look for as warning signs for the rare times sadness may slip into depression.
On January 26th at 6:30 p.m. the Career Center, School Counseling Office, and Wellness Counselors will be teaming up to talk to you about this key information. If you have questions you would like to see addressed, please feel free to complete this form:
