Principal's Message

Mustang Families,

Please take some time today to review all the information on the newsletter site. Today is Tuesday, January 17th, 2023.

The new semester has begun, and our guidance team has done a wonderful job minimizing the impact of mid-year changes to student schedules. Should your student have a question about their schedule, we ask that they come to the counseling office before school, during snack, lunch or after school.

Be sure to check our athletics twitter feed or with the different programs if you are able to come out and support our wrestlers, soccer, basketball, or water polo athletes. 

As a reminder, next week is spirit week. We have a minimum day and our showcase event on Wednesday, the 25th from 6-8 pm in the gymnasium. Thursday the 26th will be a minimum day as well, with Winter Formal that evening at AV Irvine (buy your tickets on the webstore now!). Friday the 27th is a staff in-service day. Students do not have school the 27th.

Ms. Alicia Foulk
