Congratulations to the Speech and Debate Team on winning their 5th straight State Championship this month. A special congratulations to the 42 state competitors and to these Monarchs, who placed first in their category of competition: sophomore Shefali Bharadwaj, junior Marijka Vernooy, and seniors Sydnie Domingue, Nishita Belur, and Khushi Parikh. All 160 members of the team shared their voices, messages, and selfless dedication throughout the year, which kept the team closer than we could’ve hoped for during this lockdown. Thank you to all of the teammates, alumni, parents, and coaches for the support. Congratulations, Monarchs!
The California Department of Public Health issued a revision of its order of February 19th adding provisions that will result in AMHS teams in basketball, volleyball, wrestling, and badminton—as well as men's lacrosse—returning to play in the next few weeks.

Congratulations to the Mitty Speech and Debate Team for qualifying 42 students in more than a dozen different events to the state tournament. Good luck the rest of the way!
The Mitty Advocacy Project continues to do great work. Recently, Monarchs sponsored the school’s first Indigenous Rights Awareness Week and hosted a Gun Violence Prevention Week. Members of MAP also spoke with elected officials and advocated for legislation last month. Their ideas were met with positive responses from lawmakers. Great job, Monarchs!

Thank you to junior Sebastian Young for organizing the Con Bondad Farmworker Family Drive. With the support of Campus Ministry, MAP, and LSU, Sebastian’s idea of a drive to support an underserved and underappreciated community became a reality — and a success!
