Dear Serra Alumni,

We had a great opening to the school year, with 865 Padres enrolled. We are looking forward to another fantastic year here at Serra.  

Congratulations to the five newest members of our Athletic Hall of Fame. We will celebrate these Padres at our Homecoming Weekend festivities on October 15. We will start with the alumni barbecue on October 14 at the night football game against St. Ignatius. Food and entrance to the game are both free for alumni. I hope to see you on campus soon!
