Even though the air quality is supposed to be improving in the next few days, we would still encourage you to bring an air mask. Homestead did provide some masks early on but have run out of the few that we did have. As we move closer into the holiday season, I hope that everyone cherishes the moments they have with their friends and families as we continue to send support to those affected directly by the fires in both Northern and Southern California.    

The Canned Food Drive concludes today.  Today’s collection is money. Thank you for all the donations and contributions to Sunnyvale Community Services. The winners of the most generous team and class will be released at the Winter Rally.    

Build confidence and earn better grades! Free tutoring in all subjects! Focus on homework help, Study skills and organizational skills!  Visit the Academic Center Monday thru Thursday 7th period and after school in room K1.
