Corona High School Panther Prowl
A Tradition of Excellence - Since 1896
Greetings Panther Families
Hopefully your fall season has been a great one for you and your family. With Halloween next week, there are usually questions that come up regarding costumes. Students are allowed to wear them, but we do expect our district dress code to be followed. Students need to be identifiable, which means no masks or full-face make up is allowed. Also, no simulated weapons will be allowed either for safety reasons. Have a safe ending to October as November is right around the corner!
And now, here's your Panther Prowl for October 27, 2017.
Antonio Gonzalez, Ed.D.,
Corona STEM Academy
Last week staff members from our Health Careers pathway of the Corona STEM Academy got to visit the Los Angeles Lakers' training facility. Our team got to meet with their head athletic trainer, Mark Nunez. The Lakers organization has donated items to Corona High School in the past through Jim Winn's (Health Careers Pathway and Sports Medicine teacher) partnership and this is part of that continued support.

Life Changer, Mr. Niño
Mr. Jose Niño has been teaching at Corona High School since 1970. He has literally taught generations of Panthers and has had an immeasurable impact on our community well beyond our school. He has been nominated as Life Changer of the Year. Please click on the link below to submit your feedback on the impact that Mr. Niño has had in your life. For those who know him, you already know his dedication and genuine care for people and especially our students. He is a true Panther role model and is truly deserving of the Life Changer of the Year recognition!
Also, in February 2017 Mr. Niño's wife suffered a severe stroke, from which she has yet to recover. He has not returned to work since then because he has been caring for her daily. To support the man who has been so supportive of so many for so many years, a Go Fund Me account has been created to help out with medical expenses. Please support a true Panther for Life, Mr. Jose Niño! The nomination window is open through December 2017.
