Meet This Week's Spartan Scholar of the Week!

For the Week of 04.17.2017: This week’s Spartan Scholar of the Week is Johnny Estrada, a 10th grader in our Math-Science Magnet. Johnny was nominated by Ms. Labo. According to Ms. Labo, “He is one of the kindest and big-hearted people that I have ever met. He always has a smile on his face and a positive attitude. He shows kindness to everyone and never hesitates to help a fellow student in need, and he does it all with the utmost humility. Our school is extremely lucky to have a student like Johnny and I am extremely honored to be his teacher.” Way to go, Johnny! For this honor, our scholar's name and photo will be placed on the marquee and on the home page of our web site all week.
