    Happy New Year Godinez Parents, Students, Teachers and Staff,

     Hope all of you had a restful, healthy and happy holiday and enjoyed the time off.  A highlight for me was having our son  Andrew home from Brazil after a semester abroad.  Having him home to spend time with us and our senior daughter Kirsten was such a joy.  He’s back off to college now to finish his third year while his sister is here waiting for those college acceptance letters.  I mention this because I understand and share the emotions with so many of our parents who send off loved ones to follow their dreams.  While our hearts burst with pride I also know the tears that can follow.  I know they my children along with yours have been and are being prepared for great futures. Additionally, a second highlight was serving at CENA.  My family and I have loved this tradition for the past thirteen years, the music, love and happiness shared on that day is truly a gift.   I thank the Santa Ana Educator’s Foundation for their efforts to bring this to the community every year and the hardworking organizers and volunteers that make it happen.  Thanks to the Godinez parents and students who were there to give of their time on a very special December 24th.  I loved seeing all of you and it made me proud again to be a Grizzly.

    On another note classes resume this Tuesday January 17th. Teachers have been on campus already for intersession or just getting things ready to greet their students.  Their dedication is exceptional and I thank them and the staff for all they do for our students.   We have a modified day on January  23rd. Sports teams have been competing during the break and the official CIF season began this week.  We’ve had lots of success and I look forward to a great showing in our league and beyond. Finals are January 31st- February 2nd and we have a student free day on February 3rd.  Second semester begins on February 6th and it is a modified day.  

    So much is happening and I urge you to review our online calendar for all events.  

    Again, thank you for your support.  It is an honor to serve you.
