Principal's Update

Less than two months before finals- Welcome to Week 12! In preparation of first semester ending in six weeks, please encourage your student to keep three key things in mind:

 1. Say to your student: Do not be over confident with early success, keep moving! Sometimes students take their foot off of the gas pedal when they have experienced a ton of success. Remind him/her how they got to where they are and encourage a strong finish. Check in with teachers if you have questions and stay current on Infinite Campus.

2. Say to your student: Be reflective, remember where you've been! If your student experiences some struggle or spent time completing missing work and/or completing test make-ups, remind them of what held up their success and to plan differently. The last six weeks are going to fly by and passing classes with a "C" or better keeps your student on the CSU/UC college bound list. Remember that the Matador Tutoring Center is available three days a week as well as Saturday Scholars.

3. Say to your student: Start preparing for finals now! It is never too early to plan for success. Perhaps have your student begin with listing out final products/projects/exams and due dates. Review any notes and supplemental materials that will help them finish the semester strong. Encourage your student to connect with a study buddy and calendar in dates.

I look forward to celebrating first semester success in January. Make it great day Matadors.

Auditions for Faces of the Theatre will be held after school in the black box (room 704) on Monday, October 30 from 1:30 to 4:30, and Wednesday, November 1 from 3:00 to 6:00. Any student who would like to act in this theatrical showcase, show up at one of the auditions and light up the stage. All you have to do is arrive ready to act.
