Awards and Scholarship Evening

Wednesday, May 22 is the date, 6:30 PM the time, and in the Gym is the location - for the all-important annual awards evening. During this event, students are awarded in multiple ways for their hard work during the school year: students who have been selected by their teachers as deserving of an award for that particular course will be receiving these publicly. Students who have held a leadership office will receive awards. Seniors who have earned a cord for graduation (there are four different possibilities) will be awarded these, along with seniors who have earned a Seal of Biliteracy. Lastly, students who have been awarded scholarships by outside organizations, will receive these during this event (most are a surprise for this evening). All students who are receiving an award have been mailed an invitation within the last four weeks, all before last week. It is important that all students and families attend, and I can promise a feel good experience for all. See you there!

The last Graduation Exhibition Round of the year - coming up soon! May 21 - 23

Over thirty students will be presenting exhibitions in the next and final round of the 2018 - 2019 school year. Junior round of exhibitions May 2019(1).docx (DOCX)  Please come and watch some of Anzar's students at their very finest!

Anzar Phones

Anzar parents/ families: Please be advised that we are having serious problems with our school phones: many of you are calling, and you can hear it ringing, and it appears that we are not picking up/ answering. We, on our end, however, are not hearing any rings. Some calls are definitely getting through, but we haven't been able to tell the difference between those that are ringing and those that are not. The phone company has been out (last Friday) but there is still mystery. Please utilize schoolloop as much as possible for our communication, especially for attendance issues (to keep it timely) and/or feel free to use individual cell #s that you might have already.


We apologize for the inconvenience, but we are glad that we found out! Hoping for a solution soon!

Anzar's 25th Birthday celebration!

Thank you so much for the outpouring of support, love, memories, time and laughs at Saturday's Anzar birthday bash. The weather forced us to shrink the space indoors, but the huge turnout didn't seem to be phased! It was amazing to see former students, teachers and staff, parents, board members, administrators mingling with current families and students and staff, all in support of 25 years of Anzar. Special thanks to a number of people: Mike McKinney, for the BBQ chicken, the chili, and all the shopping and prep work ahead of time; the mighty Anzar Boosters, for hosting the meal and arranging the ticket sales for everything ahead of time; Glenn and Ann Chatley, for greeting everyone and working those name tags to everyone's advantage; senior Cesar Avila and his bandmates, for providing live music; Dan Faurot Daniels, for arranging the silent auction for the Little Library houses (there's just one left! call quick if you want it!); Studio Art teacher Emily Scettrini and student Aliyah Ben Joseph, for hosting the amazing open studio AND teaching the mini-canvass class; Culinary Arts teacher Lara Hollinger, for both teaching a focaccia class AND running a demonstration for a summer orzo salad later in the afternoon; to Board trustee Jennifer Colby for her heart-warming speech and legacy gift to me; to incoming Principal Angela Crawley for her overseeing of multiple aspects of the day and her detail-oriented approach to logistics. Working behind the scenes for countless hours: Angela, Donna Avila, Joey Canepa, Kari McLaughlin, Pippa Pensotti, and Nancy Offermann, in addition to fourteen beautifully positive Anzar service learning students. Thank you for a moving and inspiring afternoon and an illustration of the power of true teamwork in pulling off a fun event, Charlene

Two recent Anzar awards

For the third year in a row, Anzar received the Civic Learning Merit Award, for stellar instruction that focuses on churning out civic-minded leaders from our high school.

And we have also been awarded a $300 grant from the San Benito Arts Council, for the necessary framing and matting of our Studio Art/Advanced Art students' work. This will allow more public display in local venues in our communities!

Kudos to Outreach Director Angela Crawley for submitting the necessary proposals for both of these recognitions!

Anzar students write about their school - monthly! Updated 1/4, 2019
