Our S.A.S.S. Club had a great meeting this week. Mrs. Paxton-Smith came in and helped our girls create their very own gingerbread houses. We had over 30 girls! In addition to the gingerbread houses, the girls enjoyed Christmas music, goodies and hot chocolate.
Last week, Mrs. La Bue came in and taught a lesson on self-awareness and self-honesty. The girls were very receptive and walked away with a better understanding of themselves.
We're very excited with the turnout each week and very appreciative of the support from our strong, compassionate women on campus. So many of you have donated supplies and most importantly, your time. If you're interested in teaching a lesson or doing a craft with our club, please let us know. Remember...it takes a village.

Students are invited to get a free heart screening on Sun., Dec. 4 @ Monte Vista High School 9am-3pm
Students 12 to 25 are invited to get a free heart screening on Sunday, December 4 at Monte Vista High School between 9 am and 3 pm.
The screening is offered by the Eric Paredes Save A Life Foundation, which has screened more than 21,000 teens for heart abnormalities that put about 1 in 100 students at risk for Sudden Cardiac Arrest - a leading cause of death under 25, and the #1 killer of student athletes. Heart screenings are not a part of annual checkups or pre-participation sports physicals, even though most heart conditions have no warning signs or unrecognized symptoms -- which is why Eric's Foundation screens for free.
Parents simply register at epsavealife.org/register/ to download a screening packet that you complete and bring to the event. Walk-ins are also accepted and paperwork is available onsite if online registration is not possible. Screenings take less than an hour. Parents need not be present for youth who have a signed and completed screening packet.
Students wear t-shirt, sweat pants or sports shorts to the screening. Girls wear a sports bra. Please bring a self-addressed stamped enveloped in which a copy of your child's EKG will be mailed back to you to add to their medical records.
We urge you to take advantage of this opportunity to screen your teen.
From Ms. Roldan:
Hi there -
ECV students were involved in some exciting things over the break!
On Sunday, November 20th our cheer squad marched in the Mother Goose Parade. The girls had a great time and did a fantastic job of representing ECV.
This past Saturday, November 26th, our S.A.S.S. group met in the Wigwam and prepared an entire Thanksgiving meal and had dinner together as a family. It even included an apple cider toast in real champagne classes! Many of our girls families didn't celebrate Thanksgiving, so this was extra special for some of them. We had so much food left over, that we packed it up and the ladies in the FRC delivered it to the Syrian families at the Embasadora Motel.
I've attached a few pics.
So proud of our Braves!
