The February students of the month are Abril Estrada for her sense of caring and responsibility and Jay-Dee Mendoza for showing strong citizenship, responsibility, and trustworthiness. Please congratulate them when you see them and look for their faces in the freshly redecorated Freshman House Student of the Month display in the main hallway by the end of next week. Great work Abril and Jiedee!

I want to welcome you to a new school year on our new De Anza High School Campus. This is a beautiful, state-of-the-art academic institution, and we are so proud to have all of you as a part of our learning community that will strive for success here. This year, along with our new gyms and theater, we have implemented new classes and programs to further enhance your high school experience. Within these pages you will find all the information you will need to navigate yourself successfully through the year here at De Anza High School. You will find information regarding procedures about athletics, academies, expectations for your behavior, extra and co-curricular activities, graduation requirements, and, most importantly, the names of those on campus that are here to support you. Teachers, staff, and administrators are here at De Anza High School because we care about helping students. We all have involved ourselves in activities both in and out of the classrooms in order to provide a special high school experience for you. We believe that we can make a difference during your high school years. We hope you will take advantage of the many opportunities provided for you here on campus. Get involved in the many clubs, teams, programs, and activities we have for you. Getting involved and getting to know others on campus, both adults and students will strengthen your life experiences and prepare you for future years. This planner is designed to help you to prepare yourself, to stay organized, and to understand the procedures of our campus. This will be an exciting year. I am excited about it, and look forward to all that is ahead. I hope you do as well.
