Principal's Weekly Update #73


Big Congratulations to the YLHS Band and Color Guard – for their 1st place finish at the Placentia Band Review, led by drum major Rachel Vogel and under the direction of Bincins Garcia. YLHS Band also took 1st place and Color Guard took Sweepstakes at the Valencia Field Tournament the same day. Great job YLHS band and guard! You can see their award winning field show during halftime at our home football games.

Congratulations also goes to Women’s Golf – who are Empire League Champions and will start CIF competition next week.

Changes in the Office – Our very own Precious Germaine is moving from the part-time Library Media Clerk position to our full-time Attendance Clerk. Congratulations!  Susan Yoshinaga will take over the Library Media Clerk position. Welcome, Susan!

A Big Thank You - to the following staff members who spent last Saturday proctoring the PSAT. We tested 350 students.
