Class of 1984 Reunion 


 After visiting the Alumni Wall, Senior Walk, the Library and the new Science classrooms, the Class of '84 moved to the Cafeteria for a Lomeli's repast and reminices.   After learning about Serra today, the Class of '84, led by Lance Roberts, Rutherford B. Hayes and Tony Galwey,  issued this challenge.  The Class of '84 is going to raise and donate more money than any other class from the '80s for this year ending June 30, 2015.  Their minimum target is to raise at least $6382.50 to "Invest in a Student."  (More on Invest in a Student....click the link.) We shall keep you posted on this competition.



Honesty is the Best Policy


 Mr. Sherman Louie attended a basketball referee training program held at Serra last night.  When he got home, he realized he had lost his wallet.  Meanwhile, Serra JV volleyball coach, Darryl Adams, found Mr. Louie's wallet and turned it into Athletic Director Josh Dabbs.  Below is Mr. Louie & Coach Dabbs after  Mr. Louie picked up his wallet and volunteered $500.00 for our "Invest in a Student" program.
