Dear Falcon Families,

Congratulations to our 75 JROTC cadets who had a successful day at the annual Fontana Drill Competition. They competed against 17 other schools and placed in the most categories of any drill team to include the sweepstakes trophy; great job cadets! We wish them luck in their last big competition of the season which will be Golden Bear National’s in Torrance, CA on April 27th. Additional congratulations to our theater students who wrapped up their final show of Big Fish and will begin preparations for their Spring show, Clue. This week we also have many Spring sports teams competing. Good luck and go Falcons! See below for the latest updates as of 3-17-24.
