Congratulations to Amy Chen, a 10th grade student at Brush High School, who participated in the Hillcrest Rotary Club 4 Way Speech Contest and won second place.

The Four-Way Test is one of the guiding principles for Rotarians of the things we think, say and do.

1.Is it the TRUTH?
2.Is it FAIR to all concerned?
4.Is it BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

Each student gave a 4-7 minute speech on any topic, issue, or situation. The ethical problem to be solved was something from the speaker's personal experience or general knowledge. There were no restrictions regarding the choice of topic as long as it was not blatantly offensive.

Sunview Students Make Presentation at Board Meeting

Sunview students needed additional challenging curriculum to help stretch them as many were reading well above grade level. The students began learning about Greek and Latin Roots and then using Chrome Slides to create engaging, dynamic presentations to teach the other students in their class about these roots. The students learn 5 different roots every other week and are then given a quiz on which they have to apply their root word knowledge to decipher new and challenging vocabulary.  On March 17, six of Ms. Erwin's students shared one of their "Greek and Latin Root Words" Presentations at the Board meeting and then gave the Board members a short quiz to check their knowledge!  The students assisted the Board members and all Board members received excellent scores! Board Vice President Alfreda Wynne and Superintendent Reid then seized the opportunity to be photographed with the students.
