Big Thank You– to ASB and Shea Runge for a terrific “Battle of the Sexes” rally. This is a great assembly and fun to see staff members involved in each of the activities. A special thank you to Ms. Kosulandich for taking two pies in the face – you are great!

Winter Formal Dance – held Friday was attended by 350+ students. A big thank you to ASB, Jason, Shea and Colleen for all their work to organize and produce this dance. Staff members who took part in making sure the dance was a big success are:

FYI - Counselors will be out in the classroom starting the registration process for 2011-12. You will get additional information at the faculty meeting on Monday, February 7th. Collecting the “interest surveys” early will help us plan for our senior class and in hiring the staff members for the 400 more students we will have next year.

Don’t Forget – YLHS Drama Department Production – “12 Angry Men” will be performed under the direction of Cathy Petz from February 9 – 12 at 7:00 p.m. in our forum theater. It is always a thrill to see our students in the play do such an outstanding job. You forget they are only high school students. Hope to see everyone there!

Did you Know – I just signed the forms to enter our Women’s Basketball Team and Women’s Soccer Team in CIF play-offs starting this month. It is exciting to see our teams make CIF play-offs in our very first year of varsity play. Final standings for winter sports 2010-11 will be out soon.

One of our Own - reached his 400th win in Men’s Soccer. Congratulations Kino!!! His Esperanza team beat El Dorado last week for Kino’s 400th win in coaching men’s soccer. Kino – you are a real asset to both schools!!
