Coordinator's Corner Weekly Announcements

Weekly Announcements (May 31-June 3):

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 into the following year.



Curricular and Teacher Evaluations: In an effort to continually improve the Magnet program, we are asking for your feedback.  Please complete the Curricular and Teacher Evaluations by Monday, June 6, 2016. It is an assignment for one or more of your CORE classes, so don’t wait. Instructions are in your Corebaby email inbox.

Book Bundles:  Next year is just around the “core”ner! Get your 10th, 11th, or 12th (Wait List Only) grade Book Bundles by clicking HERE.  Having your own copy of the books we are using is an invaluable tool and all proceeds go back to the program. You can also bring a check made out to “Cleveland High School Booster Club” to the Magnet Office.



Shakespeare in Reseda!: We have a special opportunity for enrichment this summer! The founder of the Magnet, Neil Anstead, is teaching a summer session enrichment course here at Cleveland called Shakespeare as Literature. Neil Anstead is the epitome of a lifelong learner, and more importantly, he is a lover of Shakespearean literature. You will read classic works such as, Taming of the Shrew (great fun), Henry IV-the Falstaff scenes (Shakespeare’s greatest comic character), Richard II (for its ravishing poetry), King Lear (Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy), and The Tempest (the perfect ending). You may even get to see a live Shakespearean production!  If you are going to be a senior next year, this is excellent preparation for AP Literature. If you are in 10th or 11th grade, AP Literature is around the “core”ner! You will receive a semester of A-G elective credit on your transcript, which will look good on your college resume. The class will run from June 27-July 29th 9:00 AM -12:00 PM. If you are interested, sign up here. If the number of student requests exceeds the maximum capacity of the class, we will enroll on a first-come, first-serve basis or by lottery. Click HERE to sign up.



COREbaby Seniors:  Congratulations to Mollie Grubman, Jared Ngao, and Maya Hankin for winning the 2016 Magnet Parents Association Scholarship.




COREbaby College Survey: Seniors, please take a few moments to complete the following SURVEY.  This information is extremely important to our ability to recruit students, make adjustments to the program where necessary, and create networking opportunities between current students and alumni. Please note that this SURVEY is done in addition to the survey you will be completing for Ms. Drell. Thank you for your time!



Senior Mentors Needed:  We are beginning to recruit senior mentors for next year’s Freshmen Support Class. We are looking for responsible, mature, dependable, patient students who have a good understanding of CORE and the type of study skills necessary to be successful in the program. The class will most likely be Per. 5. If you are interested in being an inspiration to the new generation of Corebabies, please complete the form. No experience needed. We will train you! Please Note: Being a mentor in this class is not the same as being a Core Buddy. Click HERE to sign up.
