In an effort to emphasize the importance of maintaining scholastic ability in conjunction with athletic ability, the Santa Clarita Track Club, Inc. in cooperation with local school districts, awards a Scholastic Achievement Medal to all active athletes that maintain a 'B+' (3.5) grade point average or better during the season. The medal is engraved with the student's name, year and symbol of the sport in which he/she is participating. A special President's Award Medal is presented to players that maintain straight A's.

Ribbons and Pictures
Ribbons and pictures will be in the communication boxes beginning today. Please be sure to pick up your child picture set.
Lost and Found 
 We have a huge amount of lost and found, we have no place to store it. We will no longer be locking up in our bins, but rather simply stacking it next to them under the stands. Please check Valencia high school under the bleachers next to our bins. All items will be donated to Good Will at the end of the week every week.
