Hello All, 

It was such a pleasure seeing our 8th graders on Saturday - we are so very proud of each and every one of them. 

Below are links and details of the event and our promotion. 

Our VIRTUAL PROMOTION and photos can be found on the links below which includes a great message from our very own OC District Attorney Todd Spitzer, the Santiago Administration, and several student performances, videos, and presentations. (Shout out and thank you to Mr. Chiang and Mrs. Barbas for putting this together). 

We also have some great photos ranging from student’s first day of middle school up to Saturday’s certificate pick up event. Enjoy!!

STAGE PICTURES (these are the same stage pictures as above, but the file is smaller)




CAR PICTURES: Currently being edited and downloaded... will be emailed out on Wednesday

** To protect the privacy of students, these photos can ONLY be accessed with an OUSD ID and PASSWORD. Your student will be able to access this using the information they ALWAYS use from their dashboard. 

** These videos are set to "view only" - you have the option to view, screenshot or download to save a copy of your student's pictures. Please feel free to contact us if you need technical support - IT IS IMPORTANT THAT INDIVIDUALS DO NOT ALTER THIS FOLDER. 

Thank you again for helping to make this promotion so special and this is to honor our 8th grade students. 

Jim D'Agostino and the entire Santiago Staff
