Science Fair Updates

Two weeks ago, we restructured the way that Science Fair work time happens for students in order to offer more support time! Students will not have Science Fair Wednesday classes anymore but instead will work on science fair projects in advisement class each day. This will provide 125 minutes weekly vs. 70 minutes weekly of supported work time.

We are still on track for project turn-in on December 11th! Our Science Fair Event will be on December 18th with a weather make-up date of December 19th!

In addition to advisement class, there are two other opportunities for support: Science Fair Saturday help and after school Science Fair Wednesday help! See those schedules below.

Renassaince Celebration

RENAISSANCE is a national recognition program that is completely based off of school student success and academic achievement. This is just one small way for the staff to let students know how much we appreciate their hard work and continued excellence in their class work. Every student was invited to the first one but moving forward, the following will be requirements for attendance:

  1. Gold: For those who have a grade point average (GPA) of 3.80 or higher
  2. Silver: GPA of 3.5 to 3.79
  3. Bronze: GPA of 3.0 to 3.49
  4. Referral free: Students have not received any referrals
  5. Perfect Attendance: Students that have been at school every day

Health Career Academy hosted a Goalball tournament this past weekend!

Our students and staff Mrs. Utterback made the local news!
