ALL STUDENTS, grades 9 through 12 – We would love to get your input.  This year we are going through a school review to maintain our WASC accreditation.  Here’s an opportunity for you to speak out, get involved, and be a part of making Santana an even better place.  We are looking for students and parents to join our focus groups to help point out where we are succeeding and where we still need to improve.  See Mrs. Ruff in the guidance office to get more information or to sign up.  Santana needs your input.

STAND UP: Are you tired of being bullied or teased and don’t know what to do?  A new group called Stand Up is being organized to address this issue.  This group will introduce strategies to stand up to bullying and different ways to make the situation better, including empowering students to feel more confident in speaking up for yourself and others you may see being targeted.  For more information, please see Mr. Anderson in the counseling office.

PARKING PERMIT: Just a reminder - If you are driving to school, you must obtain a parking permit from Mrs. King in the Vice Principal’s Office.  If you received one last year and still have the sticker on your car, you must pick up a form and renew your permit.
