News for the Week of October 30

Dear Upper School Families.

I hope that you are getting over your post Homecoming blues. It was a truly successful event and again thanks to all that were involved. I hope that Unplugged helped a bit with the transition along with the varsity girls volleyball victory over La Jolla Country Day. Next week we start off with a "boo" at the Halloween Kickback; it should be some good fun.

The National Honor Society and California Scholarship Federation are available to junior and senior students based on their grades for the 2010-2011 school year. Students can pick-up the application forms and eligibility requirements in the Community Service Office.

    CSF dues are $10.00 per year and must be turned in with the application to the Community Service Office. There is also a specific CSF community service project that is required for membership.

  • As you plan for the rest of the year, which will fly by, we wanted you to be aware of the timeline for the year.
