Soaring Like Eagles towards the End of The Year
From the Desk of Principal Smith…
Mark your calendars the 8th grade Commencement will be held on Wednesday, June 3rd at 6:00pm in the
Holy Redeemer Sanctuary.
Lets give a hip hip hooray to those students who will graduate with honors: Chyla Broxton, Sole’ Johnson, Ayana Walker-Cross, Laterrah Tarleton, and
The Champs in Tech Too!
Not only are we champs in basketball, but we are also champs in tech as well. This year the students from HRCA and Young Coggs started and competed in the National CStem Competition, held on April 10th and the 11th at the COBO Center in Detroit. We brought home first place trophies in several categories.
Some of the challenges the students competed in were the Robotics, Mural, Mobile Technology, Sculpture, and Quiz Bowl. With the help of STEM lead teachers in elementary and middle school: Sis. Lisa, Sis, Judy, Sis. Stewart, Sis. Davis, Bro. Nick from Young Coggs, and several students from MSOE, we were able to compete and bring home 6 first place trophies.
HRCA is Soaring High on WKCE testing. We are currently at 67% advance or proficient.
Lets give a special congratulations to the students from grades 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades for winning the Science Fair held on May 1st, 2015.
Please join us on May 12th as the 4th though 8th grade display a wide range of self-made art in our 1st Annual Art Expo… The art will be displayed in the library and along the library hallway.
5th grade has recently finished a new era of testing. The Badger Assessment, which was a challenge for students all across the country as the expectations were dramatically increased at all levels, is finally complete. The students have been preparing for this test in the classroom and we are anxiously awaiting the results.
Senora Quiones and Senor Mario from Young Coggs Williams High School gave an awesome presentation to Sis. Alston’s 4th grade and Sis. Dominique’s 6th grade students on the real meaning of Cinco de Mayo. The students learned that it should not be confused with the Mexican Independence Day, but it is the day to celebrate the courage of the Mexican people during the battle (La Batalla de Puebla) on May 5, 1862. The students were very intrigued by what they learned!
