Word of the Week - Retain

REMINDER: Each week we give six students a backpack with a gift certificate in it when they can tell us the word, what it means and use it correctly in a sentence.

Please post the word of the week green paper in your classroom.

Two weeks ago winners for the word infrastructure: Parks Neilon (10), Rebekah Simmons, (9) Emily Gamez (10), JD Vallesillo (9), Celeste Esparza (10), Kristian Vina (11).

Last week's winners for infrastructure were: Natalie Cherland (12), Jacob Garcia (9), Courtney Gareis (10), Tristan Lujan (Diego Nieto (10), Daniel Romero (12),

Please take a minute to recognize these students if you have them in your class.

A HUGE THANK YOU to all of you who came out and supported out first annual schoolwide fundraiser the LQ Spring Social! It was a fantastic success! The food, the music, the drinks: everything was perfect! Thank you Sean for your work in putting this together! Also thanks to the committee and those who worked on Saturday to make this event happen without a hitch!

New Beginnings:

Many of you already know that Mrs. Ornelas took a position at the district office. She began her new job on Wednesday last week. She will be missed, will still see her around as she is now an itinerant occupational therapist and will be working with students at LQHS.

Mrs. Cari Parrish started her LQHS career last Monday! She took over full time on Thursday in the SH classroom. Please stop by and welcome her!

Another week of AP and IB Testing. Please continue to avoid the new and main gyms as our students take their culminating exams.

I appreciate you all providing students with passes when they leave your class. I have seen fewer students out and about during and those that I have seen have a pass and a purpose.
