Scripps Ranch High School
SRCA June 2017 Newsletter
As I sit here to collect my thoughts as I write my last newsletter, I can’t help but be filled with extreme gratitude. I am truly honored to have spent the last six years, of my thirty-seven year career in education, serving the students, staff, and community of Scripps Ranch. I am honored to have SRHS be the school from which I Retire from working in education. This is a truly remarkable place and I am continually overwhelmed with feelings of deep appreciation and immense pride. The commitment to education from our staff, students and parents is beyond measure.
Throughout the month of May, the buzz on the SRHS campus was testing. We anticipate our test results will show the hard work and preparation from our students and teaching staff. The Smarter Balanced field tests (SBAC), life science and early admission program exams, as well as over 1,164 Advanced Placement exams were given.
We have several end of the year events planned for all students during the first few weeks of June. Please be sure to check our website calendar www.srshfalcons.org on a regular basis to ensure that you plan accordingly. The last full day of student attendance is Wednesday, June 14th. Parents of seniors are directed to the SRHS where they can find up-to-date information pertaining to seniors including the Senior Parent Letter. Graduation will occur on Wednesday, June 14th at 6:00 PM at Viejas Arena on the campus of San Diego State University. It will be a memorable evening!
With summer approaching, I hope that everyone has the opportunity to relax and enjoy time with family and friends. Everyone has worked so hard during the school year and it is important to take the time to unwind and rejuvenate.
At the end of the 2016-2017 school year, we will be wishing a fond farewell to some beloved staff members as they retire from SDUSD: Roger Engle, Bill Davis, Randy Poston, Shannon Toyzan, Richard Lawhead, Nancy Eggert, Brady Kelso, Jo Carden, Giuliana Willette, David Harlow, Greg Nunn and Louise Hwozdek. We are so thankful for the exceptional service these people have brought to SRHS over many years.
Thank you for the opportunity to help guide your students toward their future. They have all the tools necessary to succeed in life and I wish them all the very best. Because of their efforts and hard work in academics, athletics and community outreach, they have made SRHS the jewel of our district. I am proud of all of our students. Let’s all keep the Falcon Pride going!
