This week we will be talking about: Bullying. Bullying is when someone uses their power to control or intentionally embarrass, or harm another person over and over again. Bullying may be physical (hitting, kicking, spitting, destroying property), verbal (teasing, name calling, saying mean things about the person, threatening), or emotional (spreading rumors, leaving someone out from activities, humiliating, or intimidating). Bullying may happen face to face or through the internet, or cell phones; and that is called cyber-bullying.

Famous American Novelist, Mark Twain, wrote, "The secret of getting ahead is getting started."

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. 

Special Announcements 

Please remember to come to school everyday and on time; and maybe you can win one of the great prizes in our attendance raffle!  And...in ST Math, we have over 20 students who have completed 20% of the ST Math curriculum and earned themselves a High School Diploma as of last Friday.  Along with these students are 3 students, however, who I think need to have their names read because they have finished 40% or more of the curriculum in ST Math and have earned their Associate's Degree.  They are: Roberto Chamu, Humberto Santana, and Yaretzi Diaz.  Again, great job, and keep up the hard work!  Lastly, teachers and students, please be aware that in Southern California, we are on a heightened earthquake alert and teachers please review proper safety procedures with your students.      

Remember, Safety First!
  • On your way to and from school remember to use all crosswalks, obey all traffic signals, and watch out for one another.
  • Please remember to walk when traveling through campus.
  • Also, remember to use quiet voices in all academic areas.
  • Play safe on the playground and when the bell rings to line up, you freeze, wait for a teacher to blow his or her whistle, and walk to your line safely. We do not want anyone running as you could get hurt.
  • When you arrive at school in the morning, you are to sit at the lunch tables. All students are to remain sitting at the lunch tables until a teacher says that you may get up to line up.
  • Please remember to pick up after yourself after you eat breakfast, snack, and lunch.  Mr. Larios does not want to pick up after you!
  • At the end of the day, please leave the campus quickly and either walk home or wait in front of the office for you parents.  If your ride is not there, please wait at the front of the school patiently and quietly for your ride.
Thank you for your attention to this morning's message, S.O.A.R. today, and remember, to come to school every day and on time because when you miss school you miss out.
