Commander Communicator 10-14

A Message From Principal Almon

Dear Commander Community,

Huge shout out to all the students who took the PSAT and the PSAT/NMSQT and to the Seniors who showed up to take the Accuplacer or complete their Edgenuity! We also loved seeing all the families and students at student-led conferences on Wednesday and Thursday. Please complete this brief survey to provide us with valuable feedback to improve our conferences in the spring.

Jaqueline Lopez-Perez, Jose Banuelos, and Nevaeh Rauch did an incredible job of leading our Superintendent, Dr. Marrero, and his Cabinet on a tour of our school. They were able to hear from our Native Student Advisory, be entertained and impressed by our drumline, cheerleaders, and Honor Platoon, and observe warm, welcoming, and engaging learning experiences in many classrooms around the school. If you are interested in joining Dr. Marrero’s Student Cabinet, please sign up HERE by Monday, 10/17/22.  

Please read below for important information about Hispanic PRIDE Spirit Week and other important updates. Remember, no school for students on
Monday, October 17th.

Have a Commander Kind of Day,

Tiffany Almon, Proud Principal

She, her, hers, and why they matter
