We are almost about to put a nice ribbon around the first semester. Keep your spirits high and let's focus on ending in a strong fashion. I will be updating the FAC this week about several meetings I am having with district officials in regards to credit recovery. Be mindful of the following:

A. Sexual Harassment Training is due by December 21st. Please see the link below if you still need to take it.

B. EOC. Shannon will be sending out additional material shortly. Please make sure you follow the expectations so that our testing season will run smoothly.

C. Food Donations. Please bring canned/boxed goods to the front office to help feed the needy this holiday season.

D. Faculty Party. Please make sure you pay Lorena as soon as you can. Feel free to bring a guest. It's going to be a fun night!

Location: 3218 Summit Meadow Road, Bonita, CA 91902

E. FAC Meeting. Here the LINK to this week's FAC agenda. I hope you had an opportunity to speak with your FAC representatives. If you would like to add to the conversation, please let me know.

F. Student Senate. Please send your TSP representative this Thursday to Student Senate at the library. We will provide pizza.

G. Sports Assembly. We are moving the time to 1:30 PM. A note is being sent out to parents.

Have a great week Tritons!

Gratitude (Triton Trait of the Month!)

For the months of November & December we will be focusing on Gratitude, or appreciating what you are given.

When you feel gratitude, you feel a sense of abundance. When you express gratitude—especially when it’s heartfelt—you strengthen your relationships with others. Grateful people are happier and more fulfilled. And gratitude leads you to be nicer to other people: more cooperative, patient, and trusting.

For the months of November & December, we encourage gratitude in others. You can model it for others by talking about the good things that happen to you and reframing difficulties by highlighting positive aspects.

"I love this absolutely stunning sunset!"

"This week has been really challenging and stressful, but I am grateful to have support coworkers."

We hope you will continue to engage in great conversations about gratitude with your students. It is especially appropriate at this time of the year.

In the weeks to come, be sure to nominate students for Triton of the Week who exemplify gratitude.
