Welcome to the 2016-2017 Academic Year!
Welcome to the 2016-2017 year at South El Monte High School!
I look forward to seeing you all back on campus, ready for year of academic success and school pride. Our staff is quite busy preparing for what we hope will be your BEST YEAR EVER!
Please help me welcome our new Assistant Principal for Instruction, Mr. Jorge Morales. Mr. Morales comes to us from EMHS where he served as the AP of Student Services. Prior to his time at EMHS, Mr. Morales was also an Eagle, serving as our APA and as a teacher at South. We are all happy to see him come home this fall.
I also want to welcome our newest additions to the South El Monte High School Faculty:
Natasha Lelchuk, English
Jeffrey Buckner-Rodas, English
Ryan Johnson, Social Science
Keith Bahrenburg, Graphic Arts
Jose de Jesus Torres, Spanish
Carlos Solorzano, Spanish
Our new Eagles are ready to join the wonderful faculty and staff at South El Monte High School this month.
We have many exciting events and celebrations coming up this fall. Our BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT will be held on Tuesday, August 30 at 6:00 PM. In addition we have our WASC Visit coming up in November just prior to the Thanksgiving Break.
The Eagles will celebrate our teamwork and community pride at each football game, drama production, lunchtime activity, pep rally, volleyball match, marching band parade, cross country race, and dance. It's time for us to enjoy every moment of this year and to work each day to our fullest so that every student has the opportunity to access college and career pathways.
Onward, Upward, Gold & Blue!
Dr. Amy Avina
