Meet This Week's Spartan Scholar of the Week!
This week’s Spartan Scholar of the Week is Cesar Guerrero, an 11th grade student. Cesar was nominated by Ms. Rebecca Hernandez, who writes, “Cesar has a positive attitude and perseverance to learn that has been unlike anyone I have met. He is an inspiration to both students and staff, and a model Spartan.” Congratulations, Cesar! For this honor, our scholar's name will be placed on the marquee all week. In addition, our scholar will receive a special edition Sylmar High tumbler and the highly coveted Sylmar High football! Finally, as if that's not enough, our scholar will receive a certificate for a free cheeseburger, fries, and a slice of pie from Marie Callender’s Bakery!
