NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY: Our next meeting is Monday, February 3rd, at lunch in Mrs. Green's room. This is an important meeting because it is the only time we will be meeting in February due to the Presidents' Day Holiday. The tutoring schedule needs to be finalized, especially for Language Honor Society members, and preparations for election of next year's officers must be made. There will also be updates on fundraising, community service and the plans for this year's induction and awards ceremony. Check the Facebook page for your status in meeting lettering requirements. See you Monday at lunch in E 214.

Congratulations to all 500 students that received a 3.5 GPA or higher for the fall semester.  Administrators will be coming around this week to recognize you in front of your 5th period classes.  On Friday, we will have a special ceremony and surprise for you in the main gym at the end of 7th period.  Please hang onto your certificate that will be your pass to get out of class and into the gym.  Great job Hawks and we encourage everyone to strive for the best grades possible.

The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is the most widely used multiple-aptitude test battery in the world. As an aptitude test, the ASVAB measures your strengths, weaknesses, and potential for future success. The ASVAB also provides you with career information for various civilian and military occupations and is an indicator for success in future endeavors whether you choose to go to college, vocational school, or a military career.  The test will be given in the Volcano Vista High School lecture hall on Wednesday, February 12th from 7:30am to approximately 12pm.  To schedule yourself for the test, please sign up in the JROTC classroom no later than February 5th.  If you have any questions please contact Major Campbell.
