Counselor’s Corner

Counselors continue to work with Seniors; focusing first on off track Seniors who are at risk of not graduating. They have also been setting up parent conferences for their credit deficient Seniors to develop plans to get them back on track for graduation. Many Seniors have started the college application process and counselors are also busy assisting their students with the process.

On Thursday, October 17, some Counselors will be assisting Griselda Sanchez, UCSB Outreach Coordinator, with the College Application Night

Homecoming 2018

ASB put on a really grand Homecoming 2018, A Night in Olympus!! The rally was decorated beautifully as was the HC court! King Fredrick Romeo and Dahlia Quinones were crowned and serenaded in song by the duet of Arantza and Aylin Rodriguez. The CI Squads also performed with their alumni, some dating back to 2000!

The rally quickly moved to the game, and Senior Yesenia Vineros planned the ultimate halftime, including the parade and magnificent fireworks. Zeus sent his lightning rods from the sky, making it a perfect Night in Olympus!

Thank you to Mr. Eddie Ramos for donating his car and time in driving, as well as Mr. Cardinez and Mr. Voshell who picked up cars at Paradise Chevrolet in Ventura. We extend our gratitude to DCH Lexus of Oxnard for their support in donating a car for the celebration. Thanks also to Petey for getting a car for the parade!

The dance was attended by over 600 of our students, and they had a great time in a safe environment.  Overall, Homecoming 2018 was a great success!
