On Saturday night at Santa Clara University, the Woodcreek boy’s basketball team was down by 14 points with just a couple of minutes left in the third quarter. To turn the tide, Assistant Superintendent Jess Borjon turned his hat inside out and put it on backwards, a classic “rally cap” maneuver. The team outscored Sheldon by 21 points over the last 10 minutes of the game to claim the victory. Although the rally cap was vital, Coach Hayes and Coach Mazzuca’s decision to go man to man defense with full court pressure may have been the more important adjustment! And, Jordan Brown stepped up to show everyone why he is considered one of the top players in the nation. It was a spectacular performance no matter how you view it. The Timberwolves are ranked 4th in the State, and made the top 25 nationally in the latest rankings! On Saturday at 8pm, the boys play Bishop Montgomery for the State Open Division Title at the Golden One Center. This is an historic moment for the school and our district. Tickets are available here.
There are some amazing theater experiences coming our way this spring! Here is the schedule of performances:
Thank you to everyone who contributed feedback for our Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). Because of improvements to the economy, our percentage of targeted students has dropped from almost 30% two years ago to about 24% this year. That results in a decrease in funding of over $600,000. We have been working for the past two weeks to reduce the budget to meet the allocation. We will be presenting our plan for next year at a public meeting on Wednesday night next week for community input and each site will be collecting input over the next few weeks. It felt odd to be cutting budgets again after three years of bounty.
