Corona High School Panther Prowl

A Tradition of Excellence - Since 1896

Greetings Panther Families,

The first quarter ends next Friday, October 13 and you can expect report cards being mailed home on October 24. It is important to understand that these report cards are simply snapshots of your student's progress and aren't necessarily the grades he/she will have at the end of the semester. It is semester grades that get recorded on the transcripts, so it is critical that any student who is not making adequate progress at the quarter make the necessary adjustments to experience success by the end of the semester. Reach out to teachers, counselors, administration, or any other adult on campus who can support your student. If you have not done so, you can create your own account to access and monitor your student's progress via Parent Connect. Please contact Elizabeth Maciel (emaciel@cnusd.k12.ca.us) or Anna Aceves (aaceves@cnusd.k12.ca.us) for more information.


Please note that on Wednesday, October 11 classes will begin at 7:40 am and end at 1:24 pm. This is due to our very first College Kick Off Day (more information in the counseling section below).


Here's your Panther Prowl for October 6, 2017.


Antonio Gonzalez, Ed.D.

Principal
