As a South Bay Families Connected partner school district, our teens have access to the new SBFC Virtual Teen Center. This was created by local teens from the South Bay community who understand the challenges that teens are facing during these current times. These teens have produced videos and curated resources to help support teens mental health and wellness. It is their goal to help others with practicing self-care and kindness, encourage teens to connect with their passions and remind the teen community they are not alone during these challenging times. Check out the resources at the link below.  

Attention current 11th grade students. If you took the pre-ACT last year, your scores are available in Aeries under "test scores." Also be sure to look for an email from Ms. Carpenter to sign up for the PSAT in January. The PSAT is only being offered to current 11th grade students.
