Welcome to Everyone and the 2014 - 2015 School Year #6 for the Mustangs! We are opening the doors to 1,738 students with new academic competition classes and several new teachers, including our newest on Friday – Noelle Toxqui. She will be joining the Social Science Department. Noelle is a Valencia HS grad and has her degree from Cal State Fullerton. She will be teaching World History and Government in room 425. You may recognize Noelle, as she completed her student teaching at YLHS and subbed for us. Welcome, Noelle!!

The Art of Living
“The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play,
his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his
love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of
excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or
playing. To him he’s always doing both.” James Michener

Thought for the Week (or year)
As we welcome all of our students into your classrooms,
remember we only get “One chance to make a 1st impression –
and our message is – it will be a good day!”
