The Bronco Bulletin

It's A Good Day to Be a Bronco!

THE WEEK OF MARCH 14-18, 2022

Happy Sunday, Broncos!


We want to say a special thank you to all of our Sophomores, as well at the Junior and Senior facilitators and staff members, who participated in our Human Relations Conference last week. Seeing our Broncos connect and build bridges between each other reminds us why every day is a good day to be a Bronco!


Quick reminder - Sunday, March 13 is the beginning of Daylight Savings. Don't forget to change your clocks!


Have a wonderful week, Broncos!


Remember - On Fridays We Wear BLUE!

WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH

March is Women’s History Month! Make sure to check out the display in the library where you can guess which influential woman said famous quotes!

A WORD FROM PRINCIPAL BECKER

Dear Parents: It is my pleasure to invite you to our upcoming workshop, "What I Wish My Parents Knew," held at Poway High School on March 22 from 6:30 to 8:45 PM in the Performing Arts Center. We will offer a series of interactive workshops, two of which you will select to attend, on topics identified by students as their greatest challenges today. These include:

· Managing Stress and Anxiety

· Handling Academic Pressure

· The Challenges of Social Media

· Addressing Drugs, Alcohol, and Vaping

Facilitators will include principals from 7 PUSD secondary schools, and various representatives from our community. This program has been presented to more than 6000 of our parents since we began these workshops in 2012.

Please come and get involved in our discussion on March 22, and check our school website or call the front office for additional information. Thanks for addressing our most precious resource--our children.
