Congratulations to our December Student of the Month, Denise Campos!
Denise Campos was honored with the La Cuesta Student of the Month award for December 2019. The award is given to students who have demonstrated outstanding academic and personal achievement and who are nominated by their teachers.
Lauren Berlin, La Cuesta Principal, states, “When Denise came to La Cuesta she was unmotivated and lacking in credits. Now she accomplishes whatever she puts her mind to. She is very supportive of other students as well as her sister and works more than one job. Her future is bright!”
Upon receiving the award, Denise stated “I want to thank all my teachers for teaching me valuable lessons!”
The Rotary Club of Santa Barbara Sunrise is committed to supporting youth organizations and youth-serving programs in Santa Barbara County. Beginning in 1999, the club sponsored the Student of the Month program at El Puente Community School until the school closed in 2013. This is the third year for our Student of the Month program at La Cuesta Continuation High School.
La Cuesta Continuation High School is a comprehensive alternative education program offering a variety of instructional options to meet the educational needs of students. Classes are kept small to allow interaction and an exchange of ideas between students and teachers and between students themselves. As well as cooperative and collaborative classroom activities, each student’s individual educational needs are recognized and incorporated into the structured school day. The school is part of the Santa Barbara Unified School District and is led by Lauren Berlin, Principal, and Susan Snyder, Guidance Counselor.
