In celebration of the Lunar New Year, Plymouth Elementary students performed a Lion Dance and played music for the Board of Education. The purpose of the performance is to bring good luck to everyone in honor of the holiday. The Dragons put on an amazing show for our Board and community members.
The Board also invited a student from Monroe Elementary to lead the February 23 meeting’s Pledge of Allegiance. Mighty Lion Lily Van Der Molen did an excellent job starting the meeting off right.
MHS Senior Tamika Samuels was recognized by the Board of Education for being awarded the Posse Scholarship. Samuels will be using the 4-year, full-tuition scholarship to attend Middlebury College in Vermont. Her goal is to eventually attend medical school and become a pediatrician to help close the healthcare gap for communities in-need. Way to go, Tamika Samuels!
The Board highlighted Employees of the Month for February from two different school sites. Kristine Gomez and Raul Ochoa from Clifton Middle School (first picture) and Araceli Briones and Peter Davis from MHS (second picture) were all celebrated by the Board. All four of the employees were nominated for their outstanding work ethic and teamwork they bring to school everyday.
Last but certainly not least, the Board recognized the MHS Football Team for their undefeated 10-0 season and being crowned the Rio Hondo League champs. Dynamic QB/WR duo Noah Rodriguez and Carlos Hernandez were joined by their coaches Chris Williams and Dan Banzet to accept recognition from the Board.
