E3 STEM field trip policy: In order to go on a field trip, an E3 STEM student must be passing (D- or higher) all of their current AVHS classes 24 hours before the field trip departure time. Once a student is placed on the “ineligible for field trips” list, they need to speak with a member of the E3 STEM staff to be removed from the list. The staff member will have a brief conversation with the student and also check their current grades on Schoology.
Grit to Great Event (Feb. 20 Periods 1 & 2). Grit to Great is an event that connects high school females with professionals from all career pathways, especially those underrepresented by women (Trades, Engineering, Law Enforcement, Careers in Technology, Business/Management, Medical, and other STEM careers). It is meant to inspire these young women to consider career paths that they might be unfamiliar with. This year, we will be inviting our area high schools to this event. Our plan is to have 200 students attend. Thank you to Uponor for sponsoring this event and Million Women Mentors for supporting! A catered breakfast will be provided along with door prizes. You will be excused for periods 1 and 2. Registration closed. See you in the AVHS Cafeteria on Thursday, Feb. 20 at 7;30 am. Dress business casual.
