Next week, Mr. Zamora will be visiting Blackstock and E.O. Green classes to do a brief presentation regarding the AVID program at HHS. Second semester, AVID elective teachers will begin to prepare for the AVID write off. This year’s topic is if the use of social media accounts can help or hinder a student’s chances of getting in a college/university. As students read the articles, activities will take place for discussion of articles which include marking the text and Socratic Seminar. The write off is a timed 50-minute writing with a prompt where students can use the articles to answer the prompt and support their view of social media usage. It will be given in late March and HHS will select a winner at each grade level to move on to the district competition.
Math 1, 2 and 3 concluded the semester with their respective common assessments.
Pre-calculus concluded the Exponential and Log Functions unit.
Calculus investigated the Riemann Sum and Mean Value Theorem.

Field Trip to Naval Base Ventura County, Point Mugu, VA 115
The field trip to Naval Base Ventura County, Point Mugu, VA 115 was truly once-in-a-lifetime experience for the 34 HHS NJROTC Cadets who participated to go on the 18th January 2018, 0800-1300. Not only was the trip entertaining, it was also very informative for cadets who are interested in working in the field of aviation. Cadets learned about the E-2C Hawkeye, which is the U.S Navy’s primary carrier-based airborne early warning and command and control aircraft. Lesson topics ranged from enlisting in the military to officer positions in the field of aviation, as well as attending college pre-enlistment or during enlistment. Cadets also listened to the journeys and what it takes to enlist or get commissioned in the Navy by the people who make the mission happen, such as the NFOs and the pilots. Cadets were granted the experience of flying a plane, including losing an engine, flying in bad weather, and losing power, in a flight simulator.
