Principal's Message - Week 8

DIAMOND BAR HIGH SCHOOL

WEEK 8 – September 30 – October 4

 

Hello Brahma Parents and Guardians, 

 

Welcome to Week Eight!

One of the core values of our Athletic Department is the pursuit of excellence. A team which epitomizes this value is our CIF Champion Girls Golf team. Led by Head Coach Tony McCabe, our Girls Golf team’s consistency is outstanding. Our Athletic Director recently shared that this past week, our Brahmas displayed impressive fortitude by winning the Rainbow Sandal's Tournament in San Clemente for the 4th straight year in a row! Special recognition for DBHS Senior Esther Lee for earning first place in individuals and winning the “Big Sandal.”
