Riordan SBI initial meeting–November 5, 2016

Congratulations to the 9th and 10th grade students who were selected for the UCLA Riordan SBI (Saturday Business Institute) program. The first meeting which will be a ‘Meet and Greet’ with the mentors will be held THIS Saturday, November 5 beginning at 9am.  Since this will be the student’s first introduction to the program and mentors, parents are also invited to attend the first 15 minutes if they would like to familiarize themselves with the program and meet the mentors.

The meeting will begin promptly at 9am and it will be held in Room 205-Ms. Heidi Jones classroom. Ms. KGB (Karen Grace-Baker) will open the back gate and parking lot so that parents and students can enter the school and will be on campus for the duration of the meeting.  For safety reasons, once all students have entered the classroom, the gates will be closed until the session is completed.  If you need any additional information, please send an email to:

All students who were accepted to the program are expected to be in attendance at this and all future meetings.

Here are the future meeting dates and times:

January 21, 2017 (9am-1pm)

February 11, 2017 (9am -1pm)

March 25, 2017 (9am – 1pm)

April 22, 2017 (students will leave DVD and be bused to UCLA–details to be provided at a later time).

Please mark your calendars for these dates in advance.

We look forward to seeing all of you there!


Thank you!
