District Teacher of the Year

Congratulations, Mrs. Laura Zellmer! Not only was she named Dwyer Teacher of the Year a few weeks ago, but now she has been chosen as Huntington Beach City School District Teacher of the Year. We are extremely proud of her and could not think of a better candidate to represent our district at the Orange County ceremony and celebration.


Mrs. Zellmer will create a portfolio and submit to the county for review. She has a chance to be named Orange County Teacher of the Year. Way to go, Mrs. Zellmer!

Elective Choices

Current 6th and 7th Grade students visited the media center this week to check out elective displays. They spoke with students currently in these classes to get a feel for which electives they would choose for next year. Please go online (starting Monday evening) with your child to help them select their elective choice no later than March 28.
