This past weekend the color guard performed at the WGASC show at Valencia HS in Santa Clarita and earned 1st place in their division/round. The two shows prior they also captured 1st place finishes as well. We are very proud of the work the students and instructors have put in to create a successful program!

Mr. Smith's Trivia of the Week
No one won last week. There were a few people who were close, but one or more of their choices were out of order throughout the sequence. So we will run this again! Here is a small hint to help you: Guava is the top flavor and pineapple was the last. We will not share the answers from last week, as that might help you figure out the sequence.
Students Only: Mr. Smith loves Jarritos. He enjoys seven flavors in particular. Rank them in his order of preference. The order they appear in the slide show is random each time you visit the site. Write your answer in sentence form, do not write in list/bullet point format. For example write your answer as follows:
Pepsi, coke, sprite, fanta
