CONGRATULATIONS to all the 12th graders that have received notices that they have been admitted into colleges and universities. Many of our seniors are still deliberating about where they will attend college in the Fall. To prepare students for the process, Cal-SOAP will be hosting a ‘So You’ve Been Admitted to College’ reception and fair at the Scottish Rite Center on April 13, 2016 from 5:30-8:00 pm. This is a time to make our students feel special about their achievements and to provide them with last minute valuable information before making their final college decision.
CONGRATULATIONS to the Santana Color Guard on their showing in last Saturday’s competition at Mission Hills High School. They posted a 9 point improvement in their score. Way to go Santana Guard!

THE SULTANS OF SWING are off to a 3-0 start in league play defeating El Capitan 215 to 235 and Helix 202 to 241 this week. Senior standout, Andy Cornish, led the team this week with another round of even par at Barona Creek. Hunter Reynolds had a great round yesterday as he co-medaled with a score of 38 at Mission Trails. Josh Fentress, Derek Powell, Brian Spicher, Mark Kitten, and Joseph Morgan helped contribute to the great start thus far. Root the team on as they try to earn dinner by reaching their goal of shooting under 200 this season.
