SRCA December 2014 Newsletter

We want to thank our parents and community for their continued support of our school and students.  Our teachers continue to maintain high levels of academic rigor and relevance in the classroom.  Common Core Curriculum is being seen in all classrooms during the administrators’ visits and we are proud of our students for adjusting to the new curriculum.  Along with maintaining our academic level, we are urging parents to make sure their students arrive to school on time!  Having students in class on time, ready to learn, continues to support their academic achievement.  Safety concerns can arise during the rush hours of school so we are asking everyone to do their part and make safety a priority.

Our fall sports had a very strong finish to their seasons and several teams and/or individuals competed in the CIF Playoffs.  These accomplishments are a reflection of the commitment and dedication from our student-athletes, parents, community members, coaches and volunteers.  Congratulations to all our students who participated and benefited from our fall sports program.  Our winter sports include boys’ and girls’ basketball, boys’ and girls’ soccer, girls’ water polo, and wrestling.  Teams are preparing for pre-season tournament play so  please check our website (www.srhsfalcons.org) for upcoming games and contests.  Come out and support the Falcons!!

Students and teachers in our Visual and Performing Arts program are making final preparations for the holiday season and upcoming concerts.  I want to personally encourage you to attend one of these events and get into the holiday spirit.  The Band Winter Concert is scheduled for December 16 and the Orchestra/Choir Winter Concert is December 18.   Again, please check our website for updates and times for these upcoming VAPA events.

Mark your calendar for the annual “Falcon Night” scheduled for January 15th in the gymnasium at 4PM.              Our incoming Falcon Families will have the opportunity to learn about the wonderful curricula we have at our site along with the other programs that make our high school so incredible.   We are looking forward to meeting our future Falco
