On Tuesday, June 5th we held our AVID Senior Night to recognize our seniors for their success in the AVID program. In addition to receiving certificates, seniors who earned stoles receive them to wear at graduation. To earn the stole, students must take an SAT or ACT exam and submit the Major project that focused them on what they wanted to study in college, submit the UC prompts for peer and teacher review, an application to a four-year university needed to be completed but not necessarily submitted to the university, and the last large component of the requirements is to complete at least 30 hours of community service during their senior year.  Senior presented their project up house project where is balloon represents the campus where they are attending this fall.

Final Review

On May 31st of 2018, the NJROTC program held its end-of-the-year awards ceremony. Family and friends, as well as military veterans, representatives from the school district, and the Hueneme High School staff, were invited to attend and accompany the program as cadets received awards.  Both the Armed and Unarmed exhibition drill teams conducted their intricate routines.  In addition to awarding cadets, the Seniors in the NJROTC program were recognized for their hard work and countless hours they have dedicated to edifying the program.  At the end, the ceremonial change of command was conducted as Cadet Captain Jesus Martinez was relieved of his duties and responsibilities by Cadet Commander Natalie Lopez as the Commanding Officer of the Hueneme High School NJROTC unit.
