What a great week!
April Ranches finished 2nd in the San Diego CIF Girls Golf Championships out of a field of 144 Athletes. That means she is the top in San Diego County. April qualified to play in CIF Regionals next Thursday Nov 12th at Goose Creek Golf course in Mira Loma, near Ontario. In addition, the girls varsity volleyball and field hockey teams are gearing up for the playoffs. We have awesome young ladies that demonstrate true sportsmanship. Thank you for making us the "Greatest High School in the Universe"!

|Serra's Cisco Academy Pathway|
Jason Alexandre makes final inspection checks of a computer's internal components before closing the case in Serra's Information Technology Essentials class. Jason and fellow students completed the disassembly and reassembly of a personal computer by removing all the computer's components and reinstalling them as part of Serra's Cisco Academy Network Engineering pathway.
Cisco Academies across the globe provide high school, technical schools, community colleges and universities with a standardized curriculum to develop real world skills and knowledge for students looking to gain a competitive edge. The Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) program engages students in a blended 21st Century education model providing a clear pathway to a career or continuing education. Serra's program provides hands-on academic instruction and practical labs to teach students how to design, build, troubleshoot, and secure computer networks.
Nearly every organization, from the home office to small business to global corporations relies on networks for success. Serra's Network Engineering program provides virtually limitless potential for future employment.
|ASCEND Helping Serra Students|
ASCEND is a free program, which is designed to motivate, engage and assist high school students (9th – 12thgrade) in reaching their maximum potential. ASCEND focuses on Achievement, Self-Awareness,Communication, Engagement, Networking and Developmental Skills. Students in the ASCEND Program will have an opportunity to receive academic enrichment and life skills training to support their journey to college or vocational employment.
The ASCEND program sponsored by Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. The Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority has a long history in San Diego of community service in many areas including education. Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. actually began in 1908 on the campus of Howard University at a time when African Americans were not accepted at other colleges/ universities. Today, this organization is international and is committed to service to “All Mankind.” The ASCEND program is specifically target for teens at Serra who want to go to college and who perhaps have an interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) majors.
ASCEND has already arranged trips to the STEAM Conference at UCSD and the Cal SOAP College Fair. We encourage ASCEND members to participate. There will be other outings and several guests who will address issues within the scope of “colleges and careers” as well as self- improvement, goal setting, financial literacy and more. We’d like to encourage you to support your child’s participation in ASCEND. The ASCEND group will be on campus on Tuesday, NOVEMBER 10th during lunch. There will be pizza and an introduction to the program.
