Student Activities

Santiago All Stars

Congratulations to our Santiago All Stars! Every trimester PALS hosts a breakfast to recognize students and staff who exhibit admirable qualities to others on Santiago's campus. 

Spirit Week

Welcome to Spirit Week, where students participate in various lunchtime activities to show their class spirit.

Strive Assembly

What a great Strive Assembly we had where students heard a motivational speech given by El Modena High School's Coach Mitchell. Also from ELMO, we heard from football players Wyatt Terlaak and Jack Keays as they explained the importance of teamwork.

Our students were also treated to music from Mr. Rodriguez's choir, a demonstration of sign language from Mrs. Napoli's class, spirited performances from Cheer, ASB skits, and fun Spirit Key competitions. We would like to offer congratulations to all of our Bronze, Silver and Gold Strive students.

Thank you to all of our participating staff and students who did a wonderful job of working together to create our first Strive Assembly of the year!

Saturday Campus Work Day

Thank you to all of our parents who helped us with our Saturday work day, our once a month activity that brings us together with the common goal of keeping Santiago looking great for our students.
