Proud of our Santiago Students
Julianna Huffman, Joana Thomas and Marissa Villanueva
Santiago is proud of our Santiago students Julianna Huffman, Joana Thomas and Marissa Villanueva for being recognized at Chapman University for the 20th Annual Holocaust Writing and Art Contest - and extra congratulations to Joana who scored second in poetry!
Thank you Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Mallory who offered an information session to go over the content rules and requirements, and all who coordinated this opportunity.
Congratulations to our Wall of Fame Students!
Each trimester an outstanding student is chosen from every department to be a member of the "Wall of Fame." These students exemplify citizenship, scholarship, leadership skills and overall exceptional performance. Parents and families are invited to attend as our students are honored at an awards ceremony where they receive a certificate and have the privilege of having their photograph taken and displayed in the library on the "Wall of Fame" for the trimester.
Due to Fred Kelly Stadium being closed for renovations this year, OUSD high schools will be promoting at Angel Stadium.
Santiago will be holding 8th grade promotion at 10:00 am rather than 11:00 am on Thursday, June 13th to facilitate parents who will be attending both events.
Students are participating in PTSA's Popcornopolis Fundraiser, which is due March 22. Information is found here, and if your student needs a fundraising form, it can be picked up in the front office by
