Staff and Student of the Month for December


Ms, Ulloa buys us things that we need to use at school and gives everyone amazing life advise. She has an amazing energy that you're able to feel as soon as you meet her. She comes to people with warm arms and a huge heart, one you'll never forget meeting. When we think of Ms. Ulloa, we think of an amazing mother, teacher, friend and a strong woman who helps us reach our goals. It is a blessing to have had her as a counselor and now a teacher.


Gabbi is a hard working, creative and very talented student. She has a solid work ethic and is highly self-motivated. This is evident in all she does. You never see Gabbi just sitting around relaxing. She is always on the go and constantly working on at least three things at once. There is never a wasted moment in her day. Gabbi challenges herself daily to push the boundaries of her knowledge to become better at whatever she is doing. She is a patient and kind leader in class to all her peers as she frequently volunteers to help others in class. Gabbi approaches tasks in class with a positive attitude and a great sense of maturity. These are all qualities that make her a great choice for student of the month.

National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day

National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day is an annual national observance in the United States. It is observed on December 7 to honor the victims of the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941.

On December 7, 1941 aircraft of the Imperial Japanese Navy attacked the United States naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Almost 2,500 military personnel were killed and more than 1,100 others were injured. Two U. S. Navy battleships were sunk. Five battleships, three destroyers, three cruisers, and one minelayer were destroyed.

Several hours after the attack on Pearl Harbor Canada became the first Western nation to declare war on Japan. On December 8, the United States followed the example of Canada and entered the Second World War.

National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day was declared in 1944 by the United States Congress. It is not a federal holiday therefore schools, government offices and businesses don’t close but may organisations recognise the historical day and mark the occasion. The Flag of the U. S. is traditionally flown at half-mast in honor of those killed or injured during the attack. Special events are held in memory of patriots. Several memorials have been established to honor those who were killed or injured during the attack. They include the USS Arizona and the USS Utah memorials in Pearl Harbor.

Take some time today to remember those who lost their lives and the impact that the attack had on the history of our great nation.
