Glidewell Family Christmas

As our PE Teacher, Mrs. Glidewell, continues her courageous fight with cancer, we remember to pray for her and her family. She is blessed with 3 beautiful children (Reece 15, Reagan 13, Rylann 7). During this Christmas season, let’s come together as a SAM Family and shower them with love and gifts. We would like to cover each child’s entire wish list. If you are able and willing to make a donation, we are asking for cash and gift cards. Generic gift cards such as Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Target, Amazon will be used to purchase gifts from the childrens’ Christmas wish lists. Please send your donation in a sealed envelope clearly marked “Glidewell Family Christmas” and ask your donation be dropped off in the Front Office by Monday, December 17th.



Dining for Dollars at CPK


Our next Dining for Dollars event will be held at the California Pizza Kitchen in the Brea Mall all day on Monday, December 10th. Present the flyer to your server and CPK will donate 20% of your check to SAM. This includes dine-in, takeout, catering and all beverages. Mrs. Tapia will be throwing pizza from 5:00-5:15 PM in the kitchen; stop by and see how she does, you do not want to miss it!


If we raise over $2,500 in total sales, someone at our school could win a free class pizza party! Students will be asked to write their grade on the flyer when they show it to the server, who will collect them to be tallied up to see which class had the most participation. We hope to see everyone there!

Our next Used Uniform Sale is tomorrow, Friday, December 7th, after school at the lunch benches.
