Presenting Our Star Staff of the Week!

For the Week of 10.26.2020: This week’s Pay It Forward honoree, as submitted by Mr. Marc McPhee: I would like to nominate Ms. Ana Luna Leon, our A-G Diploma Program Counselor. Ana does a wonderful job tracking the graduation and college preparedness progress of all our Spartans. She has a knack for developing strong and positive connections with our most at-risk youth. Over the years, her support and guidance have positively impacted so many of our Spartans. Her support is so critical to all teachers, as she helps to motivate and re-engage students who may otherwise fall through the cracks. Ana is also a staff sponsor of our Girls Build LA club, a community service and youth leadership program that encourages our youth to envision and implement a solution to effect positive change. Through this club, she is making a difference in our community while inspiring future generations of leaders. Ana’s positivity and overall demeanor exemplifies the Spartan spirit that makes working at Sylmar so special. Lastly, Ana is a team player, always helping out wherever there is a need, often behind the scenes and without recognition.

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!
