From:  Larry Guillemette, Chief Academic Officer, The Junior Statesmen Foundation
RE:  Gleb
Great news!  Gleb has been ACCEPTED to the Junior Statesmen JSA Summer School at Princeton.  Thank you for your support of Gleb through the application process.

The Junior Statesmen Summer School is a milestone achievement for student leaders who are interested in politics and government.   This summer, Gleb will take AP Macroeconomics, an intense college level course taught by a university professor, and spend the summer immersed in political discussions with a diverse group of bright students. 

For an educator's perspective on the program, please watch this short video featuring comments from members of The Junior Statesmen Summer School faculty.
 
 
 
Please take the opportunity to congratulate Gleb on being accepted to the program. If you know of any other students who would thrive at our program, you may use our online form to nominate them.

Highway to Health


The Project class led by Emillee and Peggy, through a grant from the West Valley Foundation, has been able to hire two personal trainers from a local business, Body Renovate, to work with the students.  Rob White and John Irwin will be here every Thursday, for the next six weeks, to work with the students.  The first session this week was setup to get a baseline of ability level.  The exercises included pushups, squats, sit ups, and jumping Jacks.  They did a 30 minute drill and then a 10 minute stretching routine.

The goal of the class is to expose the students to health issues and ways to take care of and maintain good health.  Peggy and Emilee have been working with Eastern Washington's fitness department to expand the class during 2nd quarter.  In collaboration with EWU graduate students will come to SVHS to continue working on fitness training.

The feedback from the kids is amazing.  They enjoy having the personal trainers working with them - class participation is at 100%.  This is another example of putting our school slogan "work hard, play hard" into action.



















Fall Fest and Spirit Week
Fall Fest and Spirit Week is October 21 -24.  Fall Fest and Spirit week are considered regular school days.  It is important that students attend and participate in the activities that the Leadership class has worked so hard to put together.  It is a part of our on-going building of school community and developing relationships.  We hope that the students see the value in these activities and can relate them to the Essential Question:  "What is my personal impact as a citizen."
