Principal's Weekly Update #128

STAR Testing – Thursday, May 16th, May 20th, May 21st
We start our STAR Testing this Thursday with a special testing schedule for May 16, May 20 & May 21.  Remind your student to 1) eat a good breakfast, and 2) report to their 2nd period teacher and 3) arrive to class on time and ready for the test. Our theme this year is “Beat It” – 894! A quick review of department incentives will also help focus our students to do their best and use everything you have taught them this year. This is a real team effort. A Big Thank You to Joey Davis and Terry Kerans for organizing all the test materials!

Did you See? – YLHS Men’s Volleyball was “Team of the Week” in the OC Register for the week of May 6th. Congratulations Coach Daniel Hart and your team!

Did you Hear? - At latest count, our 2013 Senior Class has earned $3,210,650 in scholarships and grants. We are still counting and will recognize all our scholarships winners at Senior Awards on May 20th.

Speaking of Senior Awards – Mark your calendar for Monday, May 20th at 6:30 at Yorba Linda Friends Church on Lakeview for our 2nd Senior Awards Program. This is a terrific evening for community and staff to recognize our top seniors and their four years at YLHS. A Big Thank You to Bincins Garcia for heading up the committee of staff members.

2013 Prom – “Lost at Sea” - is this Saturday, May 18th at the Long Beach Aquarium. Stop by and see over 500 of our students all dressed up enjoying a great evening planned by the Junior Class and ASB. Don’t forget out last “Rally” on Friday, May 17th!

Did you get your YLHS Distinguished High School License Plate Frame? – “Very Cool!!” Thank you ASB!

One Last Big Thank You - to all of our groups who recognized the YLHS Staff lunch, breakfast and desserts this part week.
