 Making the San Jacinto D-I-F-F-E-R-E-N-C-E



On Wednesday, February 28, the Riverside County Office of Education hosted the

41st Annual Riverside County Bee at the Moreno Valley Conference Center. 

The competition began with twenty-eight participants from across Riverside County. 


After 21 rounds of intense competition, the Bee was down to the final four.  Among the final four competitors was Hope Edwards, a sixth grader from San Jacinto Leadership Academy.  Hope successfully spelled “dilemma” to bring home the fourth place trophy. 


In her autobiography, Hope said her ultimate goal is to compete at the Scripps National Spelling Bee someday.  With her incredible performance this year, she is well on her way to achieving her goal.  

Please join us in congratulating Hope!

SJUSD's 2017 History Day

"Taking A Stand in History"

SJUSD's 2017 National History Day competition was a major success with students participating from San Jacinto High School and San Jacinto Leadership Academy.  There are a total of 50 students who will move on to the Riverside County National History Day competition in March 2017.  We are grateful that community members and district divisions participated by displaying exhibits related to the theme on our competition night.  Col. (Retired) Ken Fur, USAF from March Air Museum displayed artifacts from the Vietnam Era, and our district counselors, Vanessa Gomez-Lee and Dena Drouault provided the display “Taking A Stand Against Bullying.”  Thank you to our students, parents, and teachers who helped make this event possible.
