For the Week of 09.14.2020: The Spartan Scholar of the Week is Krystal Segura, an 11th grader in our School of Business, Technology and Design. Krystal was nominated by our Dean of Students, Mr. Campos. Krystal has demonstrated tremendous personal growth over the years, and we commend her for persevering and prevailing. Keep it up, Krystal! We are very proud of you! ! For this honor, our scholar's name will be placed on the marquee and on the home page of our web site all week. In addition, our scholar has earned a prestigious Schoology badge for this honor! Click on the headline for a photo of this week's scholar!

Presenting Our Star Staff of the Week!

For the Week of 09.14.2020: This week’s Pay It Forward honoree, as submitted by Mr. Derek Martin: I would like to name Mr. Raymond Rivera as my Pay it Forward Honoree. Ray is starting his 22nd year at SCHS. As many of you know, Ray is our baseball coach. As many of you may not know, he was Junior College All-American Baseball Player at LA Mission College. He has taught just about everything in our Special Education Department, including the ED class. Ray is my “Go to Man” when I find a boy that needs mentoring, that special touch that only a humble man can provide. He develops boys into gentlemen, students into scholars. If you have been in one of his IEP meetings, it has a different vibe. If you have a baseball player in your class, watch the growth in maturity the student displays. Mr. Rivera can coach at any school. He chooses SCHS, and we are the lucky ones to have this role model mentoring our students. Thank you, Mr. Rivera, for all you have done for Sylmar Charter HS and the Sylmar Community.

From Our Superintendent, Mr. Austin Beutner: "I hope this finds you and your family safe and well. A new school year brings excitement as the doors of opportunity open to students. The doors may not be open at school facilities as we start the year but the opportunity to learn must be there for all students. Learning happens when students and teachers are connected and our efforts, whether online or at school, are to make sure we provide students with the best possible education. The impact of COVID-19 requires us to take different approaches and put forth extraordinary efforts, we are committed to both." Click on the headline to access several resources!
