Student Led Conferences October 4th-7th

As this month begins, we encourage all parents to set time aside to attend Student Led Conferences at San Onofre School. What does this mean? Your student will share out a few of their school goals and their Leadership Binder. We would love to see all parents participate in our 1st Annual Student Led Conferences at San Onofre!! See what the benefits are of a student led conference below.

San Onofre's Middle School CyberPatriot Team

CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Education Program. At the center of CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition. The competition puts teams of middle school students in the position of newly hired IT professionals tasked with managing the network of a small company. In the rounds of competition, teams are given a set of virtual images that represent operating systems and are tasked with finding cybersecurity vulnerabilities within the images and hardening the system while maintaining critical services in a six-hour period.

CyberPatriot was conceived by the Air Force Association (AFA) to inspire students toward careers in ​cybersecurity or other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation's future. ​This will be the first year that San Onofre school participates. Our two amazing STEM teachers, Ms. Flaherty and Ms. Ezell will lead the team.
