Thank you to our PTSA for holding a great family event in October, Free Family Movie Night! Events like this happen when students and families get involved. November 1-13 students will be selling items from Nature's Vision Fundraising. We appreciate your student's and family's participation. All orders and money are due by November 13th.
Attendance Update: Our attendance rate has been steady at over 95%! Way to go, Warriors! Attendance everyday matters in student success. If your student is absent, please make sure to contact the office at (661) 392-2130 to clear the absence.
Gym Rededication: On Friday, October 26th we held a rededication ceremony for the modernized gymnasium. Students and staff celebrated with awards, recognitions, and a fun neon rally. We are very excited about the $4 million dollar modernization of this building and looking forward to hosting many sports and community events in the gym.
Congratulations to our very own Warrior Marching Band for placing 2nd at a recent competition in Arvin, for our drum line for placing 1st, and to our drum major, placing 4th overall. We are very proud of the work Mrs. Russell is doing with our music students! Come out to see them on Monday, November 12th at the downtown Veteran's Day Parade.
