Santiago HS: 1st place and High Music Sweepstakes 95.65

This is the highest the BOSS has ever placed at Arcadia and the High music award was a special treat! Because of the Dynasty programs in this activity, the Overall Sweepstakes and music award has only been awarded to 3 other schools in the last 25 years and now- THE BOSS.

(i.e. Overall Sweepstakes and/or Music Sweeps has only been won by Diamond Bar, MLKing, or Rancho Bernardo for the last 25 years).

Our color guard also placed very high (2nd place in AA). This is the highest placing for our color guard at Arcadia as well, and the strength of the Color guard helps the overall score of the band (Thank you Coach Keys and Color Guard).

This year, the BOSS won the High music award at all 4 competitions entered-- the first time ever for the BOSS!!

Enriching Students for Office Hours

Santiago is adding Enriching Students to help make Office Hours more efficient for students. The Enriching Students program will allow students to either be invited to Office Hours, or they will pre-select where they will get the help they need or enrichment and have a guaranteed seat.

Why are we adding ES?

  • To enhance students’ options and decision making.
  • Also, will allow student to see invites from teachers.
  • Notes posted by the teacher will tell students what to bring, or if it the session is closed to non-Shark scholars, or for testing.

What is the benefit to students?

  • Unless invited students take control of where they go.
  • Less guessing about what is going on in each class, won’t be turned away if they signed up in ES.
  • Will know where to go once the bell rings

What will you need?

  • Computer OR
  • Phone

How to do it?

  • Simple sign in through the “MyCNUSD” dashboard and Google
  • Tutorial on the program

When to do it?

  • Before Office Hours
  • Wednesdays specifically during classes

What if I don’t sign up?

  • An email will be sent home to alert the student and parent
  • You will be assigned that morning to one of you teachers

What if I don’t attend?

  • Attendance will be taken, so an absence is same as a cut in any other class.

Dress Code

Families- Please help us keep Santiago an excellent academic institution by reviewing and ensuring your student is adhering to the CNUSD Dress Code Policy (pg. 19) with your student.

Front Office Drop Offs/Food Delivery

Santiago does NOT allow food delivery services like Uber Eats, Doordash, Grub Hub, etc. on campus during school hours. Students are NOT allowed to order food and have it delivered to our campus. Deliveries will be turned away.

In order to ensure school safety, drop offs in the front office are limited to ACADEMIC related drop offs. This means that ONLY homework or projects may be left in the office with the receptionist. Items that are NOT allowed to be dropped off are:
  • Sealed Bags
  • Medication (contact health clerk if this is a need)
  • Cell Phones
  • Balloons
  • Flowers
  • Money
  • Gifts
  • Food

Thank you in advance for keeping our front office a place of business.
