Hard Work and Perseverance celebrated at

SMaRT SLC 7th Annual Awards Night !

Reported by: Christian J. Sy

In association with Ms. Cruz Orozco, SMART Ambassador Sponsor

 

The awards night for the underclassmen started with a powerpoint showing the activities and memories of SMaRT SLC. The powerpoint included photos of field trips to the California Science Center, California State University Northridge, and the Metro Headquarters. The powerpoint also showed the SMaRT Field Day, SAT testing activities, Bridge and Egg Drop competitions. The hosts then presented the awards for the egg drop and bridge competition including the ASCE Popsicle Stick Bridge Competition and the L.A. City Regional Bridge Building Competition. The awardees then received a certificate and a ribbon for their hard work towards the bridge or the egg drop. It takes great skill to design the lightest bridge but hold the most weight and the same goes to the egg drop. Mr. Sy presented the awards and congratulated the awardees. Ms. Chung and Ms. Duarte then presented the Perfect Attendance Awards to students who have maintained an outstanding attendance record for the whole school year. These students have shown great passion for learning by attending school everyday.

Ms. Chung and Ms. Duarte continued on to present the highest honor for students who have worked hard academically, the honor roll awards. These students have taken challenging courses and achieved a 4.0 GPA and maintained an A for all their classes. Ms. Orozco the sponsor for the SMaRT Ambassadors Club presented the awards for the SMaRT Ambassadors who have worked alongside teachers on helping with SMaRT activities. The ambassadors are nominated by the advisory class or the advisory teacher to attend meetings and help out with activities concerning the SLC. They have helped set up and clean up on SMaRT related activities such as the SAT Day and SMaRT Field Day, these students show a great example of being a community contributor.

The 9th, 10th, and 11th grade teachers then came up and presented the awards for the best portfolio and the most improved portfolio in each advisory class. Mr. Daniels then presented the Mustang Spirit Awards for students who have shown the mustang spirit of being an Effective Communicator, Critical Thinker, Self-Directed Learner, and a Community Contributor. Two students were selected for this award, one girl and one boy. The special honorees were given a plaque for special recognition. The last and final award is for students who have stood out in their grade level and have achieved an outstanding grade in addition to completing extracurricular work. The way this works is a 12th grader is selected for Mester 1, 11th for Mester 2, 10th for Mester 3, and 9th for Mester 4. After presenting all of the awards the hosts finished it off with thanking everybody who came and those who helped. The students received refreshments and snacks while they were excited. They got a chance to speak with their teachers, take pictures with family and friends while enjoying their recognition of their hard work. Special thanks to the SMaRT Ambassadors, SMaRT Teachers, and administrators who have made this happen. The names of the awardees are in the table below.
