Bowling News... In yesterday's finals of the 39th Annual Student-Faculty Bowling Tourney, Mrs. Cuddy's team defended their title, despite their ailing captain. Congratulations to Senior Oliver Coleman, Sophomore Sean Chamberlain and Tourney MVB Junior P.J. Barnard who, through the qualifying and championship rounds, bowled six consecutive 200 games.

Academics News

A reminder to all juniors as you work through the class sign-up process for next year: Don't forget about the Business Class electives that we offer here at Serra - the Marketing class, Entrepreneurship class and Virtual Enterprise. They all are Tri-School classes that are UC approved. Please see Mr. Houle if you want more information.

Padres, are you interested in acting? If you ever wanted to try it, then you should look into a new class being offered next year- Drama 1: Introduction to Performance. No experience necessary! This is a Tri-School class and a full year, VPA course for UC credit. Ask your counselor, or see Mr. Long in the front office for details.

Guess what? The Yearbook Class is now considered a VPA! If you are interested in fulfilling your Visual and Performing Arts requirement for college, and you would like to join the Yearbook next year, you can kill two birds with one stone! Please sign up now, or talk to Ms. Schroeder if you're interested.
