Greetings Q Nation,
We had an awesome week! Advance Placement testing concluded on Friday. It was a great testimony to our faculty members that we had over 1000 tests administered to our students.In addition, while completing classroom walk-throughs this week, I saw great instructional practices. I am humbled to work with the "Greatest Faculty/Staff in the Universe"!
Our dedicated faculty/staff arrive early and leave late daily. The results of their work is pictured below, the top 1% of the graduating class of 2015. Remember, we have 20 days of school left. I want all of our students to "Finish Like a Champion".
Have a Q-Tastic Day !!!!

|WEEK IN REVIEW|
|Game of Life May 28th, 2015|
Throughout life we will have to face numerous obstacles, but do we always know how to handle them properly? To further enhance students' decision-making skills, Serra Real Connections and Freshmen ASB are putting on "The Game of Life": an innovative program for students to learn about different agencies and resources that can help them with just about anything they need, from mental health, to family issues, to teen pregnancy. In the Media Center on Thursday, May 28th from 7:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., organizations from across the San Diego County will have booths open for freshmen students to explore. During their English periods, freshmen students will be given mock scenario cards and will try to find out what organizations can assist them with the situation they are given. After students have participated in "The Game of Life" they will know what resources they can seek out in order to assist them with roadblocks in life.
|Serra Students Fundraise To Help The Children of Nepal. |
This past Saturday, Serra’s Multicultural Club conducted a fundraiser at Albertsons to collect donations for the victims of the recent earthquake in Nepal. There was a great loss of lives and devastation to homes, cultural treasures, and infrastructure that impacted everyone especially children. The members of the club felt that they wanted to contribute to the relief efforts. The club appreciates the support it received from the Albertsons management and from all its customers who so generously contributed.
The club’s mission is to promote and celebrate the great cultural diversity of our student population, but to also reach out to our communities near and far and to help out where they can.
