Dear Falcon Families,


Congratulations to our badminton standouts who have had a great season of tournament finishes. During the rookie tournament, Sean Chen and Sarayu Simma finished second in the mixed doubles, Andrew Saluta and Lexi Lee were semifinalists, Sean Chen was a semifinalist in the men’s singles, and Mayank Sharma and Ojas Gupta were semifinalists in the men’s doubles. Jaden Seangmany and Vansh Vinod completed an undefeated season playing boys doubles, including 3 tournament wins and a #1 seed heading into the CIF playoffs. Jaden Seangmany was also the boys singles champion at the Canyon Hills Varsity Tournament beating the #1 seed from UC High School. To finish off a stellar badminton regular season, Jaden Seangmany and Alice Nguyen were mixed doubles runners up at the Madison Invitational Tournament and Karina Ford was the girls singles runner up at the Mira Mesa Stay Classy Invitational Tournament. Congratulations to our badminton standouts and good luck heading into playoffs. Picture 1, Picture 2, Picture 3, Picture 4, Picture 5, Picture 6


In other exciting sports news, our boys volleyball team advanced to the 4th round of the CIF Open Division Championship with a win on Tuesday over Bishop’s and a win on Thursday over Carlsbad. They play Tuesday at 7pm at SRHS. Come out and root for the boys, who are the #1 seed, to win on Tuesday and advance to the CIF Championship. We also have our boys and girls lacrosse teams beginning their playoffs this week so there is a lot to look forward to.


Next year’s athletes, pay close attention to the blurb below titled “Future Athletes for the 2023-24 School Year Important Updates.” To be eligible for the 2023-24 season, you’ll need to get your physical after June 5th, 2023. There is an opportunity to get a $10 physical at San Diego High School.

May 8th Late Start Modified Monday Schedule

This Monday, May 8th is a modified Monday. During this time, teachers will be either (1) offering revision/reassessments for students or (2) will be meeting with their fellow colleagues to collaborate on instructional practices. Those teachers who are offering revision/reassessment opportunities will have communicated with their students. While school begins at 9:45am, campus will open at the standard 8am time for students who are scheduled with teachers for revision/reassessments. We encourage all students who have scheduled revision/reassessment opportunities to take advantage of this time to hone their learning.


Future Athletes for the 2023-24 School Year Important Updates

$10 Athletic Physicals: Our district has partnered with UCSD to create a voluntary/optional opportunity for your potential student athletes to receive a $10 athletic physical at San Diego High School on Saturday, June 10th from 8am-12pm. The $10 athletic physical opportunity is for any student that will be trying out for a CIF sport. The opportunity is also available for all sideline and competition cheerleaders. Flyer

Free Heart Screenings: New this year, UCSD has partnered with the Eric Paredes Save A Life Foundation and they will be providing free heart screenings to students ages 12-25 from 8:30am-1:30pm. You will see that information also included on the flyer.

Physicals for 2023-24 Eligibility: 2023-24 athletic physical packets will be posted to on Monday, June 5, 2023.  For the 2023-24 school year, all physicals will need to be completed after that date to be covered for the entirety of the 2023-24 school year.



As a reminder, CAASPP testing will take place the week of Monday, May 22, through Thursday, May 25. These days will be block schedule with no advisory period. All Juniors taking the CAASPP must bring their fully charged district-issued computers; they cannot use personal laptops for the state test. Students may use their personal headphones and if they do not have them we will issue them for use on the test. All students are required to be at school during the testing week, as regular instruction will take place when students are not directly involved in testing. This test is important, as it is one of the few standardized tests administered statewide, and provides data about our school to the public. For example, our ranking as a top academic school is partially based on the results of the CAASPP. If we want to continue to have a reputation for being a top-ranked school, we need students to do their best on the test. In addition to providing data about the school, individual results are also available to each student from the state (once the tests are scored and posted). Therefore, the CAASPP is an excellent tool to diagnose where a student’s strengths and areas of need may be in math, English, and science. Any specific questions about CAASPP testing please contact Associate Principal, Ashley Gay [email protected].

Falcon Festival

This Thursday, May 11th, we will be hosting the Falcon Festival. It is an after school event being held in the quad to give an opportunity for students, families and friends to relax after AP testing and discover different parts of SRHS that they may have not known about before. The carnival-themed festivities will last from 4-6pm. ASB will be selling food, refreshments and hosting games. A few clubs have opted into selling during the event as well. There will also be periodic performances, including percussion at 4:30pm, dance at 5:00pm, and an improv preview at 5:30pm. There will be a full improv show afterwards starting at 6:00pm in the theater.


E-Waste Recycling Drive

Electronic waste is known to contain heavy metals such as mercury and lead, which if placed in the landfill, can harm people and the environment. Help protect our Earth by participating in our ASB hosted E-waste recycling drive! You can drop off any E-waste (old phones or tablets, charging cords, batteries, etc.)  in the red bins located in the ASB room, office, or library. The drive ends on Friday, May 12th. Flyer
