Commander Communicator

A Message From Principal Almon

Dear Commanders,

In honor of the great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., I want to share one of his most influential quotes on education: “Intelligence plus character — that is the goal of true education.” This quote makes me think about the character traits of successful students. Successful students own their educational experience, take responsibility for themselves, have self-awareness, and know the value of building genuine relationships with others, and believe in themselves. Students, I challenge you to attend every class every day, to take risks by asking questions when something doesn’t seem quite right or you need more information, and be inclusive of peers that you may not know or who may not share a similar background. 

Families, hard copy report cards were distributed through advisement class this past Thursday. Please support your student’s educational journey by checking Schoology and Parent Portal regularly. Congratulations to our Senior Swimmers (Alexandra Ronquillo-Guevara, Xiolani Vargas-Esquivel, Venicia Vargas-Esquivel) and  Boys’ Basketball players (Shamar Bukar, Ron Gallegos, Diego López ,Elias Montes and Isaac Sisneros), for exhibiting character and intelligence and embodying PRIDE values as student athletes.

Have a Commander Kind of Day!

Tiffany Almon, Proud and Grateful Principal

She, her, hers, and why they matter

Take Command of Your Future!
