Coordinator's Corner Weekly Announcements

Quote of the Week: “It always seems impossible until it’s done.” ~ Nelson Mandela



Coordinator’s Message:  You are almost to the finish line!  Be sure to create a study schedule to ensure you have enough time to prepare.  Check Engrade (or other grading systems) to see your standing in each class and make sure there are no discrepancies.  Collect and organize all necessary materials to study over the next two weeks.  Talk to teachers about concepts you still don’t understand.  Arrange study groups.  And once it is all over, take some time over summer vacation to reflect on your experience and performance this year, and bring that analysis with you in to the following year.



Congratulations to Cleveland High School:  Each year The Valley Economic Alliance recognizes outstanding K – 12 students, Adult Education Centers, higher learning institutions, and educators with the Steve Allen “Excellence in Education” Award.  Requirements to receive this recognition are, the recipient must have already received an award of academic national recognition. The “Excellence in Education” Award is named for long-time Valley resident and legendary entertainer Steve Allen, who valued learning and spent much of his later years focused on speaking and writing about the importance of education.
