On behalf of the Executive Board, the ASB Advisors, and the Administration, I just want to sincerely thank you all so much for your interest in the ASB class. Each and every candidate that interviewed was extremely impressive with so much potential, which made choosing the class extremely difficult. The Administration had a very hard time deciding based on the pure talent we received, but were very pleased overall. If you did not make the class, please do not be discouraged and please, please try again in the coming years. Please stay on the look out for other ways to get involved next year! Also, we hope that you will all stay in contact with us throughout the year, continuing to give us your feedback, comments, and concerns. Thank you all so much again and I’m looking forward to a wonderful next school year.
All the best,
Hello Calabasas families! This holiday season our school has sponsored two families for the Adopt-A-Family program through LA Department of Public Social Services. Please help give to families who can not afford gifts, and even necessities. Bring in new clothes, unwrapped gifts or donations, checks can be written out to cash and donations will be used to purchase items for the families. Bring in items and donations to students’ homeroom (4th period class) by the 19th. Thank you for making a difference this holiday season.
What I will be doing: Volunteers can sponsor a water station in costumes, have their band come rock out on the course or bring their dance moves to the start line! It’s a wonderful way to come together as an organization and fight for a great cause.
