Meet This Week's Spartan Scholar of the Week!
For the Week of 04.13.2015: This week’s Spartan Scholar of the Week is Efrain Mendez, a 12th grader in our School of Leadership and Public Service. Efrain was nominated by Ms. Jimenez and Ms. Hernandez. Efrain is an outstanding student. He is hard working, diligent, reliable, highly responsible, and has a great attitude. He is an inspiring example to his EL peers, because he worked hard to reclassify in only two years of being in the United States. With his 3.49 GPA, he will be going to college in the fall. We are sure that he will excel in college and in life. Congratulations, Efrain!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!
