Hello Titan Community and Happy Mother’s Day to all those who both inhabit that position in reality and in spirit. To the mothers, grandmothers aunts, sisters and to all those who mother us in many ways, thank you. And on to this week’s
Congratulations and Appreciations
- Our teachers. Last week was teacher appreciation week and we had some great moments delivering fruit and notes, surprise as teachers opened gift bags from leadership and a thank you for bagels from parent Rose Salomon. Please continue to celebrate teachers everyday.
- We had the prom this past Friday night at the SF City Hall. The students were amazingly behaved and I was so proud of their work in making this a fantastic prom. I especially would like to appreciate Kiana Pineda, Diana Osornio, Adriana Soza, Terence Falcon, Reycie Peregil and our Leadership Leaders Mr. Ochs and Mr. Hickok for their extraordinary efforts.
- This week I have a spring sports round-up:
- Boys Tennis are TCAL League Champions. This is the first time in school history that the tennis team has won league.
- Our #1 Singles player, Michael Vizcarra, took 2nd place in the TCAL and NCS Playoffs.
- Our #1 Doubles team, DiAngelo Soriano and Rishab Vaidhyanathan took 1st place in TCAL!! They also played in NCS Playoffs and finished 3rd.
- Boys Swimming are TCAL Champions for the 2nd year in a row! NCS Playoffs are this coming week and the Boys Relay teams are in (Frank He, Marc Pugeda, Darius Ramirez, Juan Pablo Palabrica, Jay Fan, Alex Lin, and Jeremy Peris) as well as Jeremy Peris in the 50 Free and 100 Free.
- Badminton are TCAL Champions for the 2nd year in a row and have posted an undefeated record for the 2nd year as well. We did very well at the TCAL Playoffs and many of our players will be representing Hercules this coming weekend in the NCS Playoffs.
- Baseball won their first ever TCAL Championship and await seeding for the NCS Playoffs in two weeks. Justin Mahley was honored at our All League Meeting as the League MVP.
- Boys Volleyball placed 4th in league (highest in school history) and made the NCS Playoffs for the first time in school history. Game is Wednesday at Clayton Valley Charter at 7:00pm.
- Jerrick Bernstine signed his letter of intent last week for CSU East Bay. He will be running Track at the next level.
- All of this tells me that our MS kids need to be working now to support a school that is rising in our sports rankings.
And on to this week
· I prefer not to countdown to the school year end because we need to stay focused on making every day matter for learning. In order to keep that focus on academics, we are tightening up policies around tardies, using passes and staying in class.
· We have incoming 6thgrader parent night Tuesday from 6-7:30 in the library
· Powder Puff was postponed and is. In fact, this Friday @ 7pm in the Titan Stadium
· Seniors, keep that focus on graduation!
Have a great week and Go Titans!
