Week of November 13th

Greetings Eagle Rock families! This is Principal Steinorth your school update for the week of November 13th.

Our Fall athletic season is rapidly coming to a close. Last Thursday evening our Varsity Boys’ Football team lost a close Quarter-final match up to Angelou HS to end their season and then on Wednesday afternoon our Girls’ Flag football team lost in the semi-finals of the Open Division to San Pedro. Please join me in congratulating both teams and coaching staffs for the tremendous seasons that they had! On a positive note, Coach Julie Wilkins was chosen Flag Football coach of the year by the LA Chargers! Thank you to everyone who voted to help make that happen! Coach Wilkins, along with Coach Moran and Senior players Teiya and Brooklyn will be honored at the Chargers game against the Ravens on Sunday, November 26th. Go Eagles!
