 Mock Trial Fundraiser  Come support your classmates in Mock Trial! Mark your calendars for our fundraiser at Chipotle on Wednesday, October 18th. Join us from 5:00 - 9:00 PM for good food and a good time. To make sure all proceeds go to our school, make sure to bring a copy of the flyer or a picture of it to the Chipotle located at 1263 Simi Town Center Way Space H2 in Simi Valley.
 ASVAB  Santa Susana High School will be administering the ASVAB assessment instrument, which is a part of the Career Exploration Program (CEP) on 11/3/17 at 9:00 AM. This test is a valuable tool to help your student with his/her future educational and career plans. It assesses the student's aptitude and pairs it with their interests, then compares the two to develop a list of possible careers. Sign up in the College & Career Center. Please contact Mrs. Wigdor if you have any questions.
 "World's Finest" Chocolates Fundraiser Mock Trial is now selling "World's Finest" Chocolates to help support our team that is competing in the World Championship in New York the week before Thanksgiving.  Last year we won second place, and we are excited to compete again this year.  Each chocolate bar is $1 each and 50% of the proceeds go directly to the Mock Trial club to help pay for flights, hotels, and all necessary items while we are there.  There are five different kinds of chocolate bars: milk chocolate with caramel, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, milk chocolate with almond, and milk chocolate crisp.  If you're interested in buying these chocolates, please stop by room 307 after school to buy a bar from Mrs. Roth.
