Congratulations to our May Parent Volunteer of the month: Mr. Metoyer!

Mr. Metoyer and son

Here is what Mr. Connelly

had to say:  Since early March, Mr. Metoyer has dedicated his afternoons coaching our Santiago Cross Country program. He brings it every day with positive energy and does a wonderful job teaching the basics and fundamentals of Cross Country to our beginning runners! Coach Metoyer helped make the first ever Cross-Country meet and team a reality.

Career Day and DSLC

Hello Santanas,

Just a couple of reminders about this week:

  1. All students will watch the musical theater performance of The Music Man on Wednesday and Thursday during school! If family members would like to see the play, general audience tickets are on sale for the 7:30 PM shows on Wednesday and Thursday of this week in the amphitheater. We are excited that our students will get a chance to see the show!

  2. Friday, 5/27, is a minimum day, with dismissal at 12:05 PM. Students that earned STRIVE last trimester will get to watch the staff vs students softball game on this day! Good luck to our teams!

  3. There is no school on Monday, 5/30, for Memorial Day. Enjoy your long weekend!

  4. We will be collecting student devices for the end of the school year on May 31st and June 1st through classes. We are hoping to have some parent help with this throughout the days! If you are available to help, please check your email for the link to sign up. (Click here for the link!)

Thank You,

The Admin Team
