National School Counselor Week-Let's Celebrate Ms. Grijalva
This week, February 6-10, is National School Counseling Week with the 2023 theme "School Counselors: Helping Students Dream Big."
Please join me in thanking and showing appreciation to Diana Grijalva, AOC's school counselor, who is recognized for the vital and complex work they do to support our students.

NHS Announcement for Parents- $20.00 Cash Donation
Hello NHS Parents!
As we enter the second semester of the year, the AOC chapter of NHS is in need of donations. As we do not require club dues, we rely upon our students and their families for donations to fund service projects and ceremonies for our members. These donations are vital for our society's sustainability. Please consider giving $20 cash or check payable to Academy of the Canyons to Mrs. Rubay so we can continue to serve AOC and the Santa Clarita community.
