GOOD LUCK ON THE TAKS TEST!!!!
Coordinators will not be at the schools the week of April 18 – 22 due to TAKS testing. If you have something to turn in, mail it to the UB office.
Students who attend Saturday academies unprepared may be marked tardy or absent for that day which affects your stipends. Make sure you always bring your planners, pens, pencils, and homework.
Drop-off and pick-up location for Saturday Academies is in front of the Technology Center . Pick up binders and schedules before 8:25 a.m. to arrive at your first class on time at 8:30 a.m.
APRIL ACADEMY HIGHLIGHTS
Seniors and juniors improved their interview skills and signed up for summer internships.
Seniors, juniors and sophomores “sharpened their saws” with 7 Habits curriculum.
Sophomores explored family relationships by creating family trees.
Freshmen, sophomores and juniors continued preparing for the TAKS test by completing on-line practice questions with the help of tutors.
Freshmen focused on how having positive attitude and character traits can help them be successful in school.
Freshmen and sophomores who missed the November Academy made-up the EXPLORE and PLAN exams. These exams help students prepare for the ACT test they will take as juniors and seniors.
