Dear Falcon Parents:
While I’m still fairly new to Independence, I can say that through meeting with many of you, your students and the whole staff, there is a pride that permeates throughout the Falcon community about all of the exciting things happening here! We’ve seen successes in fall and winter sports contests, in activities such as band, colorguard, drama, choir and Agriculture/FFA, and in both the continuation of and development of new student clubs on campus. Please encourage your students to participate in these opportunities to become further connected to their peers and learn new skills.
The first games of the spring sports season have begun, and the chill is slowly leaving the Bakersfield area. Baseball, softball, golf, tennis, and track are off to a strong start and we’re all looking forward to getting out into the sun to cheer on our Falcons to victory. All home non-playoff games in these sports are open to the public without cost, so please check the sports calendar and be part of the energy of high school sports! We especially encourage next year’s freshman families to come out to these events, in addition to the freshman orientation on March 28th and freshman registration on April 1st and 2nd (direct mail notification in early March to these families). Go Falcons!
Dean Juola, Principal
