     Principal's Message
    We are living in a time of heightened awareness around safety and violence. Despite the stress that this causes, I am proud to say that students at De Anza Have determined to both work advocate respectfully for safety. On March 14th, hundreds of students walked out peacefully in order to protest gun violence. Hundreds of others decided to stay in class and focus on their studies. Both choices were valid, and both groups of students made the choice that was right for them. No students took advantage of the flexibility to choose or attempted to leave campus. As the world around us changes, it forces our students to be mature and community minded decision makers. I am filled with pride as are all of our staff when we see our student demondstrate their committments to both their academics and their community. When rumors (found not be credible) circulated about our own school safety students reached out to both school staff and the police immediately. Based on the swift response of parents, community members, district/school staff, and RPD, I have nothing but confidence that we will remain safe and secure on campus.
    When asked what they are proud of at De Anza students site: community, diversity, and opportunity among the many things that they love. Despite nationwide turmoil, we have had many highlights on campus that we'd like to share!
    • Ms. Sanders was awarded the teachers excellence award.
    • Our boys basketball team won the league
    • Our girls soccer team won the league
    • Over spring break, 15 students and three staff members are traveling on a cultural exchange to China
    • Last week, we hosted a group of ten students from Shimada Japan in a cultural exchange
    • Close to half of our school made the honor roll for the first semester

    These are only a few of our successes, but it seems more important now than ever to remind ourselves that our students and teachers are achieving every day. Our leadership class has decided to dedicate next weeks spirit week to the idea of community. It is our goal to continue to grow and learn as a community - and to make sure that our school is a place where every student feels accepted and included.
