Week 1 - Spring Semester 2022/23

Principal's message:

Happy New Year Coyotes! I hope you all had a nice relaxing break. It's great to be back on campus and continue where we left off last semester. ASB started this week off with a bang, kicking us off with a spirit week culminating in an "Anything but a Backpack" day yesterday, and a Winter Assembly today. We were able to recognize our winter sports, students of the past quarters, and get some good spirited competition between groups. Fun week to come back to school!

During break, our groups were still busy! Even though we were not in school, all of our winter sports teams continued to perform well on the court, in the pool, and on the field. Girls water polo, soccer, and basketball have already all guaranteed themselves winning records this season, and that's with about 7-8 games left! One huge highlight was our Girls Basketball team's 51-32 victory over Troy High School last Friday night. It was a historic game in that we became only the second Freeway League school to beat Troy in girls basketball in the past 25 years...and it was the first time we have ever beat them period! But that's not all! Our girls then came back on Tuesday and beat Sunny Hills in thrilling fashion when freshmen Bella Harmon hit a three pointer at the buzzer to win the game. Back to back victories vs two highly ranked teams is a big deal! Congrats to Coach Wiley (who has now beaten every league team in his young career), all the girls, assistant coaches, and support staffs who have contributed in the development of this team.

Eggs are Back!


California regulation have allowed our Ag Farms to bring back our egg-laying hens! So excited to get my first (and second) dozen eggs this week.

Beaty & BP Middle Info Night

Big thanks to our primary feeder principals and counselors for their hospitality at their high school parent info night. It was great to be able to present the new programs and wonderful opportunities their children will have at BPHS next year. We look forward to having their Broncos and Stallions as Coyotes for the next four years!

Yearbook photo(s) of the week - The Grind

Shoutout to our boys and girls soccer teams for their grind. Keep it up! Reminder: join us today after school to support boys soccer against Fullerton!! Go Coyotes!

Lastly, I wanted to take a quick minute and wish you all a happy upcoming three-day weekend. Although we all are excited about the long weekends, we should reflect on exactly why we get the day off. 


This Monday we are observing Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday. His actual birthday is January 15th, but the Federal Holiday, signed into law in 1983 by President Ronald Reagan, is always observed on the third Monday of January. Martin Luther King Jr. was the chief spokesman for nonviolent activism during the Civil Rights Movement, which successfully protested racial discrimination in federal and state law. He was assassinated in 1968. We honor him for his selfless dedication and service to fighting injustice and opening the eyes of many to what’s good and right. As Coyotes, we should always look for heroes that exemplify our RISE Up Core Values of Respect, Integrity, Service, and Excellence. Dr King is one of those heroes and models of how we should aspire to be. 

So this Monday, as we’re hopefully relaxing with our families and friends, take a moment to remember this great man, and we’ll see you back and rested next Tuesday.


Have a great weekend Coyotes!

Girls Basketball

Girls Basketball took their preseason success into one of the toughest girls basketball leagues in Southern California, and have started the first three games with a 2-1 record. After dropping the first one to Div 1 Sonora HS, they beat Div 2AA Troy and Div 3AA Sunny Hills in back-to-back games. The girls have the next three games at home, so you will definitely want to come out and see one of their games either tonight, next Tuesday or next Friday.

Boys Basketball

This year’s Coyotes Boys Basketball Varsity team is led by returning captain Jeremy Loreto (Junior) joined by co-captains Evan Monteclaro (Junior) and Kameron Lewis (Sophomore). Returning Seniors include Guillermo Cruz and Wessam Odeh. Other returning Juniors include Aidan Bacwadan and Michael Ong. Johnathan Pineda is a returning Sophomore along with new addition Sophomore Robbie Wheeler. The Coyotes went 8 – 10 going into League against tough competition including Oak Hills, Fountain Valley, Cypress, AGBU, and Adelanto. Currently the team is 0 – 3 in league, with all three games close going into the 4th quarter. The team is looking to bounce back in tonight’s home game against rival Fullerton.

Boys Soccer

Boys Soccer has started league play very strong, beating Sonora HS 4-1, then playing two double overtime games against Troy HS (which they tied) and SHHS which they unfortunately came away with the loss in the last 30 seconds of double OT. They are playing extremely well and are sitting at 1-1-1 in league play.

Girls Soccer

Girls Varsity Soccer chalked up another win over break, and although they did pick up their first losses of the season, are still sitting at 13-4-3 overall with a couple tough losses against some very highly ranked teams.

Girls Wrestling

Girls went to Queen of the Hill (State Tournament) with 120+ Schools attended. Brackets were as high as 74 wrestlers and as low as 50 wrestlers. Vanessa Andrade (74 person bracket) went 3-1 losing to the 2nd in the state wrestler. Jacqueline Orozco (64 person bracket) went 1-2 lost some good matches.

Next up is a tournament in San Dimas. Good luck ladies!

Student Learning Outcomes
The purpose of SLOs are to increased student awareness of their own learning

Explicitly-stated learning goals give students a way to think and talk about what they have learned. They make it easier for students to “know what they know” and give students a language to communicate what they know to others. Such awareness is considered central to learning that lasts.
Have a Great Week Coyotes!
