Meet This Week's Spartan Scholar of the Week!

For the Week of 06.01.2015: This week, we have two Spartan Scholars of the Week!

Jailene Cervantes, a 12th grader in our School of Leadership and Public Service, was nominated by Ms. Michels. Jailene is a wonderful student! She takes charge in Yearbook Class and is a dedicated and professional leader! She should be congratulated for her tireless efforts to get our yearbook done and looking its best. She worked over Spring Break to make sure everything was perfect. As Chief Editor, as a Mentor, as a Student, and as a Human Being, Jailene is a success!

Patricia Beltran-Cortez, a 12th grader in our Math-Science-Technology Magnet School, was nominated by Mr. Mashhoud. Patricia has worked hard to achieve academic excellence. She has persevered, and this led to the realization of a dream: to attend one of the most prestigious schools in the United States, Princeton University. Overcoming a set-back, she has excelled academically, athletically, and socially, and she ha set her sights on becoming a physician. She is a Spartan, through thick and thin, and she will no doubt conquer all obstacles! For these honors, our scholars' names will be placed on the marquee all week. In addition, our scholars will receive a special edition Sylmar High tumbler and the highly coveted Sylmar High football! Finally, as if that's not enough, our scholars will receive a certificate for a free cheeseburger, fries, and a slice of pie from Marie Callender’s Bakery!
