Leilani and her husband, John, have been married for 26 years and together they have six children: Joann, Jannelle, Joshtian, Jeremiah, Keynon and Jeanna.
Leilani’s hobbies include listening to music, decorating through the seasons, and guitar playing. She especially enjoys spending time with her family and relaxing on her days off. She counts it an amazing privilege to serve as Titan’s Activities Director and says, “I look forward to bringing all of who I am, and all that I continue to learn, in order to encourage students to achieve their greatest potential.”
involvement in AVID opened the doors to many of the opportunities she has had in her life. After graduating from Cal State San Bernardino with her Bachelor of Arts, she attended Chapman University for her teaching credential and Master of Arts degree. She taught English and AVID at Bloomington High School for four years. During that time, she was working on her counseling credential. In 2005, she became a counselor at Bloomington High School, and takes great pride in working diligently with students, parents, and staff to support academic student success. This support revolves around her commitment to utilizing available resources for both academic and personal/social needs, and to ensure appropriate student placement. In addition, she believe it is important to encourage students to challenge themselves academically, in an effort to be most prepared for post-secondary education options. I am excited and honored to transition into this next chapter of my life and to serve the Grand Terrace High School students, parents, and staff as the Head Counselor.

the classroom buildings are nearing 90% completion.
On the grounds of the school, the parking lots are being paved and the concrete landscaping is
In the second phase of the project, which includes the installation of the Student Services Building,
the pool and the stadium, work is progressing nicely. The pool is approximately 40% complete
and we will soon start to see the concrete being poured. The construction on the football stadium
is now about 60% complete.
It is an exciting time for me as a principal; I can begin to imagine the students walking through the
halls. I am also proud to announce the selection of a few key staff members that are joining the

HIGH SCHOOL DRAFT PLAN: A
The third plan, High School Draft Plan A levels out enrollment between the three schools, but maintains most of
the elementary/middle/high school feeder patterns, with the exception of Lewis Elementary School, Smith
Elementary School and Grimes Elementary School. Those three sites would attend Grand Terrace High School,
which alleviates overcrowding on the Bloomington High School campus. Students residing in that area would
be eligible for transportation, however, despite the distance being greater, the total transportation time for
those students will likely increase by approximately ten minutes. This is due to traffic conditions which greatly
increase the time it takes to transport students residing north of the I-10 Freeway to Bloomington High School.
HIGH SCHOOL DRAFT PLAN: B
The fourth plan, High School Draft Plan B also levels out the enrollment between the three schools. While Plan
A uses the I-10 Freeway to separate the Bloomington High School and Grand Terrace High School attendance
areas, Plan B uses Cedar Avenue to divide the two areas. This plan does not maintain the
elementary/middle/high school feeder patterns and splits the Joe Baca Middle School attendance area
between Bloomington High School and Grand Terrace High School.

There weren't many surprises at today's Citrus Belt Area releaguing meeting this morning at Norte Vista High School, as Cajon moved from the San Andreas League to the Citrus Belt League while Fontana and Colton were placed in the Sunkist League, moving from the CBL and the SAL, respectively.
These moves were part of Proposal 8, which was drafted by Moreno Valley High School and beat out 15 other proposals. It did in interesting fashion, as it received 60 votes during the eighth round of voting, beating out four other proposals that had 41 votes each. Due to the Citrus Belt Area's bylaws, all of the other proposals were eliminated, as any proposal in last or tied for last automatically gets the boot.
As far as the other leagues go, expect an appeal from Vista del Lago HS. The Ravens' athletic director, Kevin Ferguson, was the only athletic director or principal to reject the proposal, as the Ravens were placed in an Inland Valley League that got tougher than the one they were asking for relief from, as former Big VIII schools Riverside North and Riverside Poly joined the league. Vista del Lago can appeal to the CIF-SS offices if it chooses.
Here are the leagues for the 2012-13 and 2013-14 school years.

Cajon - moves from the San Andreas League
Redlands East Valley

Construction Continues as Usual!
“Although boring to some, given the long, arduous journey of this project the last 10 years, this is exactly where we want to be,” according to Darryl Taylor, the new Director of Facilities and Planning at CJUSD. Recently-hired Mr. Taylor is working closely with the District’s Program Manager, Seville Construction Services and the project construction management team, Vanir, to get up to speed on this project, learning its history. Setbacks as well as triumphs punctuated site acquisition, funding, and start of construction activities. However, the positives far outweigh the challenges as attested by future Grand Terrace high students who recently elected the Titan for the school mascot and turquoise and black for its school colors. Grand Terrace High School, when complete will represent another triumph for Colton Joint Unified School District.
