The highly anticipated medical scrubs have arrived. Last week, the 9th grade students received light blue scrubs and the 10th grade students were given navy blue scrubs. The students will wear their scrubs for community service projects and, beginning in January, the 9th grade students will wear scrubs every Monday as part of their Professional weekly grade. The 10th grade articulated class wore their scrubs for the first time on Tuesday. After this experience, Abby Nguyen said: “I looked very professional and I felt like I was part of something very important.” Echoing this sentiment, Amber Tamayo said: “When I looked in the mirror and saw myself in scrubs, I told myself ‘You have come a long way!’ I can’t wait to see the day when I am getting dressed to go to work every day in scrubs. I am really happy.”
