Good Afternoon Jaguar Familia!
As many of you may know, May is a month of many important school activities. We are planning our Graduation for the Class of 21 and are excited to announce that we are hosting the event at PayPal Park ( Avaya Stadium) under the lights on the evening of Saturday, June 5th at 6 pm. This year, due to Covid regulations, it will be invite-only. However, it will also be streamed online for everyone to enjoy! Please mark your calendars for this special date.
In this newsletter edition, we would like to honor our AP Spanish teacher, Mr. Asencio. He has been a great source of energy for our staff and leads our Spanish Dept with his dynamic instruction. Incredibly, the passing rate of the students in his class who take the AP Spanish Language Exam is near 100%. That is amazing and we are proud of what he has accomplished. He is proudly from El Salvador and represents the multi-culturalism on our RCLA staff. He is also a mentor teacher who can assist with our recent teacher hires. Thank you, Mr. Asencio, we are proud to have you on our teaching staff!
Parents, please view our photos below. We have a variety of students who have recently been honored for their academic achievements. They are the academic leaders of our school and we are appreciative of just how hard they work! We hope you enjoy the photos. Most importantly, parents, we are proud of the direction that our school is moving in. It is a TEAM effort on behalf of our front office staff, teachers, counseling, and YOU!! Thank you
