SGM Big Bear High School Education Foundation Alumni Newsletter

Hello to all and 2006 Happy New Year!!!!!
THINGS ARE POPPING IN THE BIG BEAR SCHOOLS.
GIFT GIVEN TO BIG BEAR MIDDLE SCHOOL:
How many people remember Randy Perkins, class of 1972? Randy was all C.I.F. in basketball in 1972. His sisters were Ragena, class of 69, and Caryn, class of 76. Randy went on to become a very successful financial investor and recently gave a substantial gift to assist in the Middle School Gym remodeling project and to support the Middle School Athletic Program. He also is contributing to the SGM/BBHS scholarship program. There is so much more to this story but for now hold on to your hat and wait for next months alumni e mail edition to hear what all is going to happen for the students of Big Bear Middle School. THANK YOU RANDY. MORE TO COME!!!!!
MIKE AND DELORES CLIFTON FINAL SOFTBALL GAME:
This past week we received the date for the Mike and Delores Clifton retirement Alumni Softball EVENT. The game will be on June 4th, 2006 at the Field of dreams softball field. For those of you who want to play in this final game with the Clifton's please contact Christina Filia at 909-936-9723 or Debra Sarkisian at firstname.lastname@example.org. or call the High School 585-6892 and ask for Estelle Hooker at extension 283. We will be giving you more information with the next mailing of the alumni e newsletter next month. Rumor has it that Rich Benson is also retiring. Will Big Bear High School be the same without these three awesome teachers? (Don't tell Rich I said that or he will be looking for a way to roast me.)
FOOTBALL SEASON ENDS WITH A GREAT GAME!!!!
The Football team had a great year. They ended the year 9 and 2 and lost their last league game 21 to 20 and their C.I.F. playoff game 17-14 to Nordoff. The Bears were ahead most of BOTH games. In the C.I.F. playoff game the Bears gave up a touchdown in fourth quarter and Big Bear's final drive fell short. David Griffith's, coach of the Bears goal is to practice on Thanksgiving Day for the second round of C.I.F. but the teams did not make it. The 2006 team should also be a strong team. Students, parents and faculty of Big Bear High had a great time this year at several home games with large crowds. It really is what High School Football is all about.
CROSS COUNTRY TEAM TAKES 2ND THE STATE
The cross-country team led by junior, Chad Hall, took 2nd in the state cross-country championship in Fresno at the end of November. Again it was a total team victory. Chad ran even though his side was in pain. Sophomore Alberto Solis, junior Shaun Colquhou, junior Chris Jasperson and junior Cody Dodd all scored points for the team. We wait anxiously for next year as the teams' goal is to take the California State Cross Country Championship.
COURTYARD PROJECT!!! STILL COLLECTING MONEY.
The Student Council under the leadership of Jake Murie, Middle School Student Body President, has taken on the project of remodeling the "Courtyard" with the assistance of the district construction committee. The Student Council hopes to raise as much money as possible by selling engraved bricks for the "court of honor." The bricks are engraved about 1/8 of an inch deep and really look good. In the next six months the students hope to sell engraved bricks so the project can move forward. If you attended the Middle School or the High School you can add your message to a brick for $30 each and they will be placed in the court of honor during construction. The example below shows the guidelines for the message for the brick paver. Several student groups at the Middle School have already volunteered to assist with the landscaping and laying of the brick pavers next summer. I hope you will plan to purchase a brick and support the project. Just print the form below and send your donation to the Middle School. Hope many of you alumni participate in this student led project.
SEND THE FORM TO THE MIDDLE SCHOOL AS DIRECTED BELOW:
|Number of pavers requested: ______________
