Sinaloa Sabers Weekly Update 11/12
Happy Diwali &Thank you to all of Veterans for their service
Good Evening All Sinaloa Families,
and Happy Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights, to all of our families that celebrate this holiday. We also want thank all of our military veterans and active military personnel for all of their service to protect the freedoms of our country. We only have 5 days until our Thanksgiving Break and only 23 schooldays left in the semester. We want our students to continue to work hard and follow the school rules. We want to have a great end to the calendar year and the first semester. In January we will have our first Semester Awards Ceremony and publish our Honor Roll and Academic Excellence List on our website. We will also have these posted around the school so we can recognize those students that are exceeding here at Sinaloa. Keep working hard SABERS!
