Crystal middle schoolers (and teachers) had a Silicon-Valley-worthy morning on December 7 as they coded up a storm. While the rest of the world participated in Hour of Code, students sipped hot chocolate while clad in cuddly PJ's for an hour of Cozy Coding. Our Crystal coders are well on their way to becoming the Valley's next generation of engineers.

The Crystal student and faculty delegation to the annual National Association of Independent School’s Student Diversity Leader Conference headed to Nashville in early December to “develop cross-cultural communication skills, design effective strategies for social justice practice through dialogue and the arts, and learn the foundations of allyship and networking principles” (www.nais.org).
The Crystal Squash team captured its fourth consecutive Northern California squash championship this past weekend in Santa Clara. CSUS sent two teams to compete, with the A team coming home with the crown with a 6-0 win over Harker.
The JVA Girls Soccer team remains undefeated with a 2-1 win over Harker on Wed. 12/7 at the Belmont campus. The girls went up 1-0 early in the game only to have Harker come back and tie the game a few minutes later. The game-winner was scored in the second half and the girls held on to win the game.
