Hi La Cumbre Community,

Last week was a whirlwind of activity. Here's what happened:

* Tuesday was a minimum day for junior high teachers to meet and discuss Common Core standards
* The San Marcos Winter Guard performed for PE classes on Tuesday morning
* We held a GATE meeting on Wednesday
* On Thursday, the band, drumline, and La Cumbre Voices held its spring concert in the theater
* We honored 15 VIP students at the Assistance League Luncheon
* He held RTI/Sports Extravaganza Day on Friday. Students rotated through 10 activities that culminated in the Strongest Lancer competition. The winners were Katrina Regalado and Sam Alen, who both received iPod Shuffles and a $25 cash prize
* Students left for New York and Washington DC on Friday afternoon
* The La Cumbre Foundation held a retirement reception for Paul Didier, President.
* We hosted former astronaut Jose Hernandez on Friday evening. Over 1000 people attended to hear Mr. Hernandez talk about his journey from migrant farm worker to NASA astronaut. His message about perseverance and the importance of education was the theme that ran through his presentation, that included videos of his trip to the space station. It was a once in a lifetime event for the crowd , who gave him a standing ovation.

We have finished with all state testing!! Students did a great job of staying focused and working hard on these difficult tests. Please congratulate your student for doing their best.

There's still time to purchase a yearbook - $35 in the office.

Our washing machine has died. If you would like to donate a washing machine to our PE department, we would be really grateful. Thanks
