Principal's Message

Hello Mariner Students and Parents!

I hope this message finds you well and safe. Last week our wonderful counselors presented a virtual event to our senior students and parents. The presentations were held in both English and Spanish and were offered in the morning and in the evening. The topics covered included, but were not limited to Compact for Success, Financial Aid, Scholarships, A-G Requirements, Work Permits, and what is the best way to get in touch with counselors. There was also a time for general Questions and Answers. If you happened to have missed the event, do not worry. You can access the recorded sessions in the videos below. Also, please know the counselors are currently working on scheduling the same type of event for 9th, 10th, and 11th grades.

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead and Go, Mariners!

Bettina E. Batista
