Principal's Message - Week 5


WEEK 5 – September 9 – 13


Hello Brahma Parents and Guardians, 


Welcome to Week Five.

Our Pathways Communications Academy students, Young America’s Foundation (YAF), and Social Science teacher, Mr. Ty Watkins have organized the 9/11: Never Forget Project on campus this Wednesday by displaying 2977 American flags in the front of campus to commemorate those who perished on that terrible day. We are very thankful for our service men and women who protect us, and we will never forget. 


Attention Seniors, click HERE for our Senior Bulletin. Special Thanks to Grade Level Coordinator (GLC) Dave Desmond for providing such timely and relevant information! 

  • Military Service Academy Night is presented by the office of Representative Gil Cisneros on Wednesday, September 18, 2019 at Troy High School in Fullerton from 6:00-8:00 pm. This is a great opportunity to learn about the U.S.A. military academies and their highly selective admissions process.  Looking ahead, all materials for those requesting a nomination are due to Representative Cisneros by Friday, October 25, 2019 at 5:00 pm.  If you have questions, contact Stephanie Wade atstephanie.wade@mail.house.gov.
