Dear Falcon Families,

Congratulations to the Scripps Ranch High School AFJROTC Terabyte Falcons.  The AFJROTC team was announced as the National Runner-Up in the All Services Division at CyberPatriot XVI out of 1,309 teams that entered the competition.  Congratulations to the 6 cadets and their instructor, retired Major Mark McLouth.  Also congratulations to our Roller Hockey Team who are this year's CIF Champions.  We also would like to congratulate our Science Olympiad team and the team advisor Mrs. Patty Fowler.  The team consisted of 86 students, each competing in three or four of the 23 events.  Together the team won 22 medals, an exceptional achievement as our regional competition is the largest and most challenging in the United States.  Our spring sports have begun league competition. We wish good luck to our spring athletes and their coaches. See below for the latest updates as of 3-24-24
