Vikings Kenneth Bautista and Julio Hernandez are on Fire!!

For the past 10 Tuesdays these two young men have been traveling after school to the Frank Hotchkins Memorial Training Center in downtown LA, where they have received training from the Los Angeles Fire Department to become official LAFD Cadets. Aside from being a member of our Engineering and Design program (Bautista) and a catcher for our Viking Baseball team (Hernandez) they've worked hard, studied, practiced, and trained both at School and with the LAFD.

Now they are assigned to Station 87, near Balboa and Devonshire, to work hand in hand with all the Firefighters there. If an emergency call comes in they can ride on the Engine/Ambulance/Ladder truck to assist. They will also be training young students from the community.

Congratulations to these two young men. They are proof that dedication and commitment can take you a long way!

Viking Football Moves on to Next Round of Playoffs!

Congratulations to Varsity Football as they move on to the next round of playoffs!
Thursday, November 2nd, the Monroe Vikings took on the Contreras Cobras in a game that felt like chilly stalemate overlooking the bright lights of Los Angeles. Shortly after halftime, the Vikings took control of the board and never looked back. In a series of plays that drove us to the final score of 27-6, the Vikings stepped up their game and took the win. The next stop for the Vikings is Santee High School on Friday, November 17th. We are looking forward to seeing the Vikings in action again!
