WELLNESS TIP:

Anxiety and depression are real issues for teenagers in today’s world.  Looking for signs of these in your student is important.  Just as important is having the ability to reach out for help and assistance when needed.  So many of us try to treat our students on our own because of many reasons including a stigma of mental issues.  Don’t be afraid to reach out for help.  There are so many resources we have at West Ranch and in the Santa Clarita Valley.  We are all here to help our students navigate these difficult years.  Asking for help to support your student takes strength to put their issues ahead of your own.  The health and wellness of your child may depend on it. 

 

CONGRATULATIONS!

Last Saturday our Wildcat Marching Band competed in a competition at Warren High School in Downey and once again our band students proved why they are one of the best in California!  Our band won First Place in Division 5A, First Place Percussion, Auxiliary Sweepstakes and High Visual Effect Sweepstakes!  Our band and color guard students put in hours of work and dedication and it is great to see it awarded!  Congratulations to the entire Wildcat Marching Band, all the Band Coaches, the Band Boosters, and of course our Band Director Jason Marshall!  Great Job!!

 

Let’s have a great week!

GO WILDCATS!
