(above) These 20 students were on time to school 100% of the time! These responsible students are reliable and dedicated to their learning! Quarter 1 is officially finished for Sierra High School! We are immensely proud of our students-they worked hard! There were 105 awards given. We were so thankful to have families join us to witness their student’s successes be rewarded. As a school, the students earned 1,540 credits in just 37 days of school! We celebrated our students with certificates and prizes. We are so grateful to our donors who helped gather the prizes. To top it off, it was the first day our students were able to get their lunch from the new food truck! Photos courtesy Sierra High Blog.

Last week Fillmore’s Rio Vista TK and Kinder students had a great field trip at the FHS School Farm as part of the Fillmore FFA hosted “Fall on the Farm” event where 450 students attended. The young students toured six different stations around the farm by FFA members. One included pumpkin science, picture taking, hay maze, and a tractor ride. They also got to pick their own special pumpkins to decorate and take home to share with their families. While going around and seeing the farm the kids got the opportunity to ask about the livestock animals and projects students have at Fillmore High School. FFA had a great time hosting the students and getting to be back after COVID. Fillmore FFA is excited to keep this an annual event to educate and give the younger generations a chance to try new things and be a part of an amazing program. Happy Fall! Courtesy Rio Vista Blog.

Principal Henrey said, "Our first three days of school were filled with making connections, building relationships, and learning how to be a Sierra Warrior. We made sure every student understands the expectations and focus on Growth Mindsets here. Our students are gearing up for a great year! There are just 33 days this quarter, so we are challenging our students to stay focused and give it their all. Here they are building their collaborative teams and learning to communicate in science with Mr. Karayan."
