SRCA April 2016 Newsletter

            March was an exciting month at Scripps Ranch High School.  Winter Sports came to an end with many teams advancing to playoffs.  Congratulations to Women’s Basketball, Women’s Water Polo, Women’s Soccer, Wrestling, and Roller Hockey. We are so proud of all of our student athletes! The Falcon Playhouse presented “Little Shop of Horrors” and did a fantastic job.  Our incredibly talented band and choir hosted their annual Spring Concert.  Mock Trial and Science Olympiad excelled in their competitions.  The AFJROTC Academic Team received word of their eligibility to compete in Washington D.C. at the end of June.  The students at SRHS continue to excel in all they do.  In addition to all of this, our students continued to meet and exceed expectations in the classroom. 

            Annual testing will begin at the end of April and continue through May.  Students in Grade 10 will take the NCLB test in Science at the end of April, while students in Grade 11 will take the SBAC tests in Math and English at the end of May.  AP exams will be administered May 2–13, to students who are enrolled in AP classes and who have purchased AP exams.

            The next few months are crucial for students and the school as we maintain our Distinguished School honor.  Stay focused—we’d like to remain number one in the district! Students are encouraged to eat a healthy breakfast, stay well rested and do their best on their exams.  Due to tighter security measures cell phone use is prohibited in the classroom.

Our Spring Sports are well under way.   With the dedication of our student athletes, parents and our coaches, we hope to have an outstanding spring season.  Please come out and support Scripps Ranch High School Athletics.

I want to express my continued gratitude to all of our students, coaches, faculty/staff, and parents who dedicate their time and commitment to our extra-curricular programs.  Because of these individuals our students are afforded opportunities to make a connection to our school and the chance to develop important life-long skills such as teamwork, commitment, dealing with uncertainty, asking questions, and learning the importance of sustained effort. 

            Lastly, I want to express my deepest thanks to our Foundation Board and all those who volunteer in a variety of capacities.  This group of parents works tirelessly to find money to help support our school.  Without our dedicated community, we could not maintain our distinguished reputation.
