Greetings Panther Families

It's hard to believe that the semester is almost over, and with that, it's time to make a strong push to end the year on a positive note. Encourage your students to take advantage of tutoring opportunities and Panther Academic Saturday School (PASS) sessions (support can vary given staff availability).

And now, here's your Panther Prowl for December 8, 2017.

Antonio Gonzalez, Ed.D.,

Boys Golf: Tryouts will be held on January 11, 2018. Please have your student see Coach Maffucci in S-103 to find out place and time. Remember that students must have an athletic clearance packet on file prior to trying out for any sport. They may see Mrs. Mecicucci in the Athletics Office located in the gym foyer.

Boys Soccer: The Press Enterprise named two of our Panthers, Francisco Gomez, Sr. and Angel Soto, Jr. as Players to Watch. Francisco is "the player who is scoring goals and has all the coaches talking," while Angel is a returning All-Big VIII League selection and was one of league’s best playmakers last season.
