Jaguar Spirit Week **Senior Appreciation Week** Nov.2nd- 6th!!

Good Afternoon Jaguars!

Thank you to our dynamic staff who have dressed up this week in Jaguar School Spirit. Please take a moment to view the photos below of our Jaguar Familia. We have a group of proud educators who are leading our students in cultural empowerment, academic excellence, and personal enrichment. It is with a deep sense of pride and gratitude that I share with you the RCLA Staff photos! Way to go Jaguars!

Students- Please make sure that you are finishing your Grading Period 2 with a commitment towards your personal best! Meet with teachers to review any missed assignments or homework that you may not have turned in on time. Our Jaguar Goal is for every student to have a 3.0 GPA or higher to be eligible for a UC/CSU school immediately after high school.

Parents- Please contact me if you have any questions. I am always eager to talk with you about your child’s progress here at RCLA!
