Happy Friday Cougar Families!As I hope you are aware we are in the middle of our governing board election. Ballots were mailed out last Friday and should have all been delivered by now. I want to remind you that they have to be in our possession by 3:30 on Wednesday September 28. They can be returned by mail or hand delivered. Any ballots that are received after 3:30 PM on September 28 cannot be included in the count.
I want to thank our PTO for sponsoring the community candidates forum on Wednesday. All of the candidates did a fantastic job. I learned that they all love Steele Canyon and want to maximize the learning experiences for our current and future students through fiscal responsibility and transparency. We recorded the forum so please click here if you were not able to attend.
Yesterday marked the first day of Hispanic Heritage Month. We are proud to support our students and honor the contributions and influence of Hispanic Americans to the history, culture, and achievements for the United States. We celebrated today at lunch with music and dancing in the quad and we have a group of staff and students who are planning events throughout the month.
Don’t forget to vote!
Have a great weekend and stay safe!
