News and Announcements

Meet This Week's Spartan Scholar of the Week!
This week’s Spartan Scholar is Estevan Ontiveros, a 12th grader in our School of Leadership and Public Service. Estevan was nominated by Ms. Michels. He works diligently for our Yearbook staff as and our Football team. Recently, he had to both prepare for a football game and create the outstanding Spartan artwork for the Yearbook cover. All the while, he still had time to entertain the Yearbook class with his great sense of humor. His artwork is amazing! Congratulations, Estevan! 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!
