Dear Falcon Families,


A big thank you to our CA-935 cadets and our entire Falcon community for their generous canned food donations. Together, our community donated 11,116 pounds of canned food! These donations will be given to the San Diego Food Bank where all food will stay in our county to help feed the less fortunate in our city. Congratulations to cadets Xavier Rico and Joshua Yang who just earned the College-Level AFROTC Scholarship. This scholarship equates to a "Full Ride" 4-year scholarship to any college/university that has an AFROTC Program. Additionally, congratulations to our CIF competitive cheer team who competed for the first time in school history and earned the Division 1 large squad runner-up. Very impressive!


This is our final week before our Winter Break so I look forward to a fun week ahead. We have a spirit week and a Winter Rally on Friday to celebrate as we go into the break. Lets make this final week of 2022 a great one! See below for the latest updates as of 12-11-22.


* Please forward this message to your child’s email account so they have all the latest info.
