Dear Saints,
 
Blessings on your day! Finals week is one week away. Make sure you're getting lots of sleep and eating a healthy breakfast. I am praying for you!
  
As a reminder, I am scheduled to go out on maternity leave this Friday, December 14th, 2018 and return on Monday, April 29, 2019.  While I am out of the office, please reach out to counseling@clshs.org  with any questions or concerns. SENIORS: please reach out to Mrs. Garcia (garcia@clshs.org) if you need assistance with anything related to college applications, Naviance or graduation. I hope and pray that you all have a wonderful Christmas and a blessed start to the second semester-I will see you in April!

In HIS Love,
Mrs. Yakinian

All sections of Study Hall will still be held during finals week.  If students have this as a class on their schedule they should be in attendance.   Study Hall will also be open to all students looking for a place to study during open blocks or after school that week.  Study Hall is located in room 207B.
