Principal's Message

Today is Monday, November 14, 2022.

Please be sure to scroll through the entire site today. We have updated our student of the month recipients, honoring PE students this week, and highlighting Will Burns, named OC Register's athlete of the week.

Our Thundering Mustang Marching unit hosted the annual Tournament in the Hills on Saturday and took top honors. They received first place in the WBA Regional championships. Thank you again to all the parents and volunteers for helping host this incredible event. Best of luck to our band as they move on in the season!

Our boys and girls cross country teams continue their seasons as well, racing this coming weekend in the CIF Division 1 Finals on Saturday, November 19th. Good luck to all our runners!

Have a wonderful week,

Red Cross Blood Drive

Our campus Red Cross Club will be hosting a Red Cross blood drive in the MPR on Tuesday, November 29 from 8:00am until roughly 2:00pm.

 Last year, during our fall and spring blood drives, we had 125 total donors -- 97 of whom were first-time donors! With the successful donations collected, the pints collected from our two 2021-2022 blood drives had the potential to save up to 375 lives. 

 Beginning at 8:00am on Tuesday, November 29th, student donors who are on our sign-up list will receive call slips to come to the MPR to donate during their time slot. Students may sign up at the Red Cross table in the Quad.

Please be aware that the time commitment for a donation is roughly a 45- to 60-minute process since there are typically several steps involved in making sure the donor is able to successfully donate as well as a brief recovery period to ensure the student feels well post-donation.

 Red Cross Club volunteers will do their best to limit class disruptions while ensuring that students are escorted to the MPR when it is their turn.

 The need for whole blood donations is critical.  Students who sign up to donate and the student volunteers who will be helping will be reminded to check in with their teachers in advance about content that they will need to complete from missed classes.
