Meet This Week's Spartan Scholar of the Week!

For the Week of 02.19.2018: This week’s Spartan Scholar of the Week is Christina Trujillo. Christina defines scholar to the extreme. She works hard in the classroom and after school to achieve success. Christina is also a Link Crew Leader, teaching freshman Spartans how to balance academics and extra-curricular activities. As a member of ASB, she was involved in the planning of articulation. Christina is an assiduous scholar and is well worthy of the Spartan of the Week Award. 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. In addition, our scholar has received a special Spartan Scholar Medallion, a Sylmar limited edition tumbler, a delicious macrobar, and a free meal from Marie Callender’s Bakery.
