Hello Vanguard Families.

I hope you all have a nice, restful Winter Break. With the semester now over, hopefully students will have far less school work to do and they can really enjoy some quality time with friends and family. I thought I would take this time to share with you some construction updates.  We had a very exciting Topping Off Ceremony for our new science building. It was great fun and we expect this building to be completed August, 2020, so students will be taking their science classes in this new building next school year.

 Facility Updates

SCOREBOARD: As you may know, our El Modena Foundation in conjunction with several of our booster clubs was able to donate to our school enough money to purchase a new scoreboard in our gymnasium. These plans are being reviewed by our architects and electrical engineers which will then be submitted for approval to the Department of State Architects (or DSA). This does take several months, but we are well underway!  Thank you to El Modena Foundation and our boosters for all of your work to make this happen.

AMPHITHEATER SOLAR PANELS were set to be installed over the summer but are delayed by the coordination of construction projects on the campus. This project has been postponed until summer of 2021. However, we still anticipate installing some solar panels in our staff parking lot.  

QUAD RENOVATION: Our quad will be renovated this summer. This will include leveling of the ground, elimination of dirt patches, addition of lighting and shade structures.  This will be so great for our students. I am very excited about this one!

ELECTRONIC MARQUEE: El Modena Education Foundation is raising money to purchase this once the proper funding is acquired and approvals but the Department of State Architects (DSA) are received.  Installation is to be implemented into the current plans for construction of our Administration building and is expected to be completed within the next few years during Phase Two of the Bond Measure.

FRED KELLY STADIUM:  Fred Kelly is almost done!  We expect it to be completed in May, 2020.  Graduation is scheduled to be at Fred Kelly this year!

AQUATICS CENTER: The plans for our Aquatics Center have been submitted to DSA for approval. We expect to begin construction in the spring. The Aquatics Center will include a new pool, locker rooms, coach's office, and restrooms.

Thanks for all of your patience and support as we upgrade our campus and navigate all of the challenges that go along with such tremendous construction projects. I appreciate how so many of you have been donating to Boosters and El Modena Education Foundation for some of these projects.  They often take more time than we anticipate due to strict standards that we must follow in ensuring student safety. However, we are well underway and are so grateful for the Vanguard Community.

Have a wonderful break and Happy Holidays!

Jill Katevas, Principal
