With the start of advent almost among us and Thanksgiving coming soon, we would like to wish each and every one of you a season of joy, love, laughter and prayer as we prepare for Thanksgiving and then Christmas. We have many great events planned, including our Thanksgiving feast, Posada, toy drive, and so much more. We hope you are able to attend all of our events!
It was great seeing so many parents attend the Parent-Teacher conferences! Please continue to check Teacherease beginning Monday to get up-to-date access to you student(s)’s grades. If you need a new log-in or password, call the office today for assistance.
Semester Finals are fast approaching and will be held December 14th-16th. Please make sure all financial accounts are up-to-date or students who have accounts in arrears will not be able to take their finals per our handbook. The Monday before finals, we will be giving out passes for students to take with them to class to prove that they can take their exams. If a student loses his or her pass, they will be sent to the office and will need to pay a $10 replacement fee. If you have any questions about your account status, please contact Mrs. Luna at: firstname.lastname@example.org
As we have stated several times this year, Summer school must be completed at Santa Clara High School for any classes where a student fails (D+ and below are also recommended to make-up since colleges will not accept anything below a C-). The information flyer will be sent out soon and will be available in the office. We will allow students to take credit recovery courses or enrichment courses that would normally not fit their schedules. In some cases we will allow students to take courses at Oxnard Community College as an alternative but the student must get approval first.
Re-registration will also begin once we return from Christmas break and the process will remain the same as last year as well as the fee schedule. So you are prepared, the fee schedule is as follows: $300.00 per child if re-registered by February 28, 2017, or… $375.00 per child by March 15, 2017, or… $450.00 per child by June 15, 2017. We will be sending out more information as the time nears.
As a reminder, please save the following dates:
- Saturday, November 5th is our Open House. If you know of anyone interested in SCHS, send them from 11am-1pm to see what we have to offer.
- Friday, November 11th is no school due to Veteran’s Day
- Friday, November 18th is a Minimum day. We will have our Thanksgiving potluck in the Quad.
- Saturday, November 19th is our annual Hall of Fame dinner.

Gospel Meditation for the week:
“. . . a great multitude, which no one could count.”
Heaven is vast! It’s made up, not only of the great saints, but of everyone who lived for the Lord. Let this truth fill you with hope for yourself and for your family—even the ones you worry about the most. No one is excluded. No one is ever too far gone. The Lord is a God of miracles, and that means that anyone can become a saint!
“Thank you, Lord, for your grace and mercy. Help us all to be holy as you are holy!”
One day [Jesus asked his disciples]… “Who do you say I am?” -Luke 9:18 & 20
