FUTURE STALLION NIGHT: San Juan Hills High School invites all future stallions to attend Future Stallion Night at the last home football game of the season vs. Dana Hills this Friday night, 10/25, in the Badlands Stadium. The game starts at 7:00pm, but please plan on arriving early to guarantee parking, check in, get your free shirt, and enter onto the field pregame to run through the banner with the team. At halftime after band and future stallion cheerleaders perform, all kids are invited onto the field to participate in warm up exercises and the football toss competition led by Stallion football players. However, the football toss competition is only for the winners of the football toss held at their school site. Students that won the football toss at their school site please get a pink wristband at check in.
All future stallions get into the game for free. General admission for parents is $10. After entering the stadium, check in and entrance onto the field is the gate on the far end of the stadium (opposite the scoreboard) by the Bad to the Bone eating area. After the pregame run through all future stallions will exit the field to watch the game in the stands and re-enter the field 3 minutes prior to halftime.
San Juan Hills is excited to see all future stallions!

LION GUARDS (WATCH D.O.G.S.): On Thursday evening, we held our introductory meeting regarding the 2019-2020 Lion Guards (Watch D.O.G.S.) program. If you missed the meeting, not a problem at all! We can go through the training (even the same morning that you would like to sign up!). All of our Lion Guards (D.O.G.S.) must be cleared with a Tier Two clearance. You can access that form, by clicking HERE. You can fill the form out and bring with you the day that you plan on volunteering.
To aide in sign-ups this year, we will be utilizing Sign-Up-Genius. It is easy to access and even easier to use! To access this sign-up, please click HERE.
Please note that these dates take us up through the Winter Recess. Spring dates (January-June) will be sent in a few weeks. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to reach out!
START OF DAY REMINDERS: Just a reminder that once the bell rings, that begins formal instruction in each of our classes. That means we must have the campus cleared to ensure we have no unidentified persons wondering campus. All visitors MUST check in at the front desk.
