Teacher Appreciation Week!!!

The first week of May brings us Teacher Appreciation Week and the chance to say thank you to all of you for turning students on to learning. We’ll be reaching out in the form of coffee, pastries, hugs, and general positive vibes. Thank you all for overcoming some of the challenges of this school year and never losing sight of our mission to teach and support students. PTSA will be showing their appreciation later in the week. Watch email for updates!

Independent Study Reminder

Teachers: A reminder that Independent Study work should be assessed and returned to the IS coordinator (Barbara Turner) within 7 days. By law, the district cannot accept work beyond that timeline and therefore cannot collect ADA. Please remember that ADA pays the bills and that it is in our overall best interest to collect ADA.

Boys Tennis Wraps Up the Season

Boys Tennis wrapped up the season last weekend. We were a very young and inexperienced team this year with 12 out of 18 players new to the team, and we finished the league season in 3rd place with a league record of 5-7. At the SCL Singles and Doubles championships at SRJC, the doubles teams of Jason Metten & Dimitri Papageorgacopolous and Zach Leno & Alex Wolf plus singles player Nathan Wong all won their 1st round matches on Thursday, and lost close quarterfinals matches. Our other singles player, Kevin Cox, was seeded #4 overall and had a 1st round bye. Kevin won his quarterfinal match; in the semifinal match, Kevin played very well, but eventually lost to the #1 singles seed.

Well done, Boys Tennis and Coach Cox!
