Glendale Unified Salutes Its Class of 2020 O

ur Glendale Unified community is extremely proud of the achievements and resilience of our amazing students, particularly our graduating seniors. The class of 2020 has demonstrated its exceptional ability to excel academically and shine brilliantly. All four Glendale Unified comprehensive high schools rank in the top 16% of

high schools nationwide by U.S. News & World Report, and among the top STEM high schools in the nation according to Newsweek. Both Clark Magnet and Crescenta Valley High School were recently recognized as California Distinguished Schools, each earning additional “Exemplary Program Awards” from the California Department of Edu-

cation. This year, Clark Magnet was selected as a U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon School for its innovative efforts to reduce environmental impact and ensure effective sustainability education. Our students have received top honors and been nationally recognized for academics, athletics, the arts, and Career and Technical Education programs, including environmental engineering, robotics, culinary arts, public safety, automotive and construction skills, health, science and engineering. Without a doubt, we are living in one of the most exciting, promising, and challenging times in human history. The 21st century world is more globally connected, technology-driven, and complex than any previous era. I have every confidence that our amazing graduating seniors will go on to excel in a global economy, affect positive change, and create a brighter future for generations to come. Congratulations graduates, we are incredibly proud of you!

Clairbourn Grads’ Skills for Success in Life C

lairbourn Head of School Dr. Amy Patzlaff’s message for the class of 2020: When I think about this class, your impressive, varied talents come to mind, as well as your ability to navigate surprises, like the switch to remote learning in the middle of the school year. At Clairbourn, you have become specialists in the skills that apply to all games and all situations. We have talked about these skills in our daily Morning Assemblies, and these are the qualities from our Code of Ethics: honesty, respect, responsibility, citizenship and spirituality. These are the skills you need for success in life.

People keep referring to “these uncertain times.” But there is certainty in how you approach your life. You always have the choice to act ethically, and that gives you control in the game and in life. So I wish you all the best because you are prepared with this special secret. Clairbourn is proud of you because, in the end, the medal they will hang around your neck will say you played the game well with honor, and you are scholars and leaders with heart. Clairbourn is a CAIS- and WASCaccredited independent school for preschool-grade 8. Visit clairbourn.org or call (626) 286-3108.
