Each contestant was graded on their performance of their special talent and answers to questions from judges. Congratulations to Deanna Lara for being voted Miss CI 2018.
Counselors began visiting the Junior Highs this week and presented to all incoming 9th grade students. They covered everything from graduation requirements and A-G requirements to everything that Channel Islands has to offer.
