Dear Falcon Families,


A huge congratulations to our Dance, Cheer and ASB Teacher Trishaa Camp for being selected as a semifinalist for the District's 2023 Teacher of the year!  Her interview is Monday so wish her luck in being selected as a finalist. Also, congratulations to our Science Olympiad teams. After a full day of competition with 5 teams each competing in 23 events, they won an outstanding 3rd place and a grand total of 58 medals in the top ten! They earned a prestigious spot at state and will be competing the beginning of April. Great work! In today’s update, I’ve included information about the upcoming WACAC College Fair, the Class of 2023 graduation website, the Wednesday career series, and more. See below for the latest updates as of 3-12-23.

Purchase Your Tickets for “Anastasia” the Musical - Reminder

The SRHS Falcon Playhouse is back with their second show of the school year with their spring season show, "Anastasia" (book by Terrence McNally, music by Stephen Flaherty, and lyrics by Lynne Ahrens). Anastasia the musical, inspired by the Twentieth Century Fox Motion Picture, is a story that follows the grown up orphan girl, Anya. With no memory of her past, she is forced to desperately work for money in what used to be St. Petersburg, Russia, saving up for a one way trip to Paris. She doesn't know why she must go to Paris, but she has a hunch something or someone from her past is there. With rumors of the Grand Duchess Anastasia arising of her being alive when she was thought to be dead, her new friends, Dmitry and Vlad, help take her to Paris and take her on a journey to the past. Shows are March 16th, 17th, 18th, 23rd, 24th, and 25th!

With a cast and crew of over 80 students, everyone is working hard for opening night! One unique thing about Anastasia is the set; the show travels through many contrasting places, such as a train, ballroom, ballet, night club, etc., as well as two different countries. The set designed by Jay Butcher (sophomore) and Michael Chen (junior) is being constructed by student technicians. Along the technical side, Anastasia's costumes are beautiful! Involving royalty, the show calls for gorgeous ball gowns fit for a Russian dance. In addition, we will have a full house of K-8 students in the Scripps Ranch community coming to see the show! Tickets are on sale now! Here is the link to purchase tickets:


Wednesday Career Series

The next Wednesday Career Series scheduled for March 15, 2023, will feature a presentation on Careers in Healthcare given by Physician, Shannon Cheffet, DO.
