During the month of October we celebrated the naming of our mascot and his first birthday! Welcome to the world Andy Hawk!

During the first week of the month, Andy gave all students cupcakes to celebrate his birthday.

The second week brought, we brought "sidewalks" inside so students could decorate them with "Hawk Chalk."

The third week, Leadership held a fundraiser selling Hawk Dogs and chips. Even the district came down for a bite!

The fourth week students and staff voted on haunted cubicles and Hawk-o-Lanterns. Congrats to the winners of the Hawk-o-Lantern contest!

Finally, on Halloween, the school was transformed into Wonka's Chocolate Factory as students went on a costume parade around the school.


The San Francisco Traveling Shakespeare Troupe presented “Romeo and Juliet” on November 17th at Prospects High School.  This is a group of professional actors that travel to bay area schools to introduce the works of Shakespeare.  It was a shortened version of the play and updated in more contemporary attire.  After the play the thespians offered a “Play Shop” for students to learn about the dramatic elements involved in presenting a play such as voice and rhythmic movement .

  • Tobacco influences

  • Chemicals in vaporizers

  • Comparing cigarette vs. vaporizer marketing

Snow Days!

Prospects High School is getting into the winter spirit this month!

We have fun winter themed art activities planned starting with our month long "Do you want to build a snowman?" craft.  Students will create their own snowmen out of paper and we will display them around campus. Make sure you find your favorite before it melts!

The students in the art lab have gotten into the community spirit by participating in the Antioch Herald's downtown window decorating contest.  The windows on the 2nd street side of the building have a whimsical snowball fight. Other shops in the downtown area are also participating.  You can vote for your favorite here. Be sure to write in Prospects!
