Middle and High School Spirit Week
The Disneyland themed Spirit Week was a great success!  Every class had over a 90% participation rate in all five themed dress-up days.  The collaborative spirit and creativity of our students was put on display as each class decorated a hallway in the high school building to reflect their chosen Disney land. Each land was then brought to life as the students displayed their many creative talents in skits that each contained a positive message for the student body. The majority of our student body came out to support the basketball teams at the Winter Ball games on Friday evening.  Between games, the Homecoming Court nominees and winners were presented to the crowd.  Last year's Homecoming Queen, Mikaela Yates, made the trip up from California Baptist University to crown this year's King and Queen. Our 2016-2017 Homecoming Court members were:
Freshman Prince and Princess: Grant Garcia and Erin Valci
Sophomore Prince and Princess: Mitchell Friesen and Marissa Burns
Junior Prince and Princess: John Kim and Brielle Owens
Senior Prince and Princess: EJ Merrell and Madeline Benhamou
King and Queen: Nick Fragus and Cassandra York
The festivities concluded on Saturday evening with a wonderful formal dance and buffet dinner at Dublin Ranch Golf Course.
