Week Off?--Except for the students competing in the Lions Club speech contest, traveling to the Nationals for the cheer competition, playing baseball and softball, working on their hoemwork, resumes and planning for Leadership. We love the week to recoup and rejuvenate, and we know that some of our best focused work time comes when we are "off the clock". The 3rd quarter is busy with everything from the Regional science fair (did we mention Pinole Valley has the most representation in all WCCUSD) to ELPAC testing to AP preparations. We are getting ready for the Multicultural Rally and Fair and we are hoping that our last Spring in the portables is our best yet. Or have you seen a Mardi Gras parade through the campus? Laissez le bon temps roulez and have a great President's Week
