Marching Band & Color Guard Mattress Sale

Should you be in the market for a new mattress, come to the band and color guard’s mattress sale this coming Saturday (May 13) between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. in the Kennedy cafeteria. 

Profit raised from the sale will be used toward the purchase of a new equipment trailer for band and color guard. 

Text “Bedtime jfkhs” to 67076 for a free $50 coupon. 

At the sale, adults will receive a free raffle ticket for the Big Bang Fireworks box, a give-away valued at $500.


A well-deserved congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Hanzlik as well as to students of the Clarion: this past Monday, they were recognized with eight different honors at the Sacramento High School Journalism Network’s annual journalism awards dinner. Students received props for editing, photography, graphics, illustration, and cartooning.

Way to go and well-deserved! 

Link Crew

New for next year, Link Crew is a ninth grade bridge program that “links” junior and senior students with incoming ninth graders.

Link Crew leaders are current sophomore or junior students who are interested in making a positive difference at school. Leaders receive intensive training on how to be a leader, take a leading role in orientation (August), and provide support to a small group of ninth graders at various times during the school year.

Applications are available in the Counseling Center and due by no later than May 19.  

If you have questions, please contact Elyna Cespedes, Counselor, at or Carla DiBasilio, Counselor, at
