 Sports Results - December 18, 2014
 

 

 

 

Last night the 7th grade boys’ basketball team defeated Avon Middle School North 37 to 20. The Orioles were relentless on the offense glass and on the defensive end. The score was 13 to 6 at halftime but the Orioles came out in the second half with determination and dominated the rest of the game. The 7th grade Orioles finish the 2014 portion of their season with an overall record of six wins and four losses.

 

The 8th grade boys’ team earned a 46 to 32 victory against Avon North last night.  The team started out playing as 5 individuals going into halftime on the losing side.  However, the boys trusted in each other and got it fixed for a great second half.  The team shared the ball, attacked the glass, and played great defense to go on a 12 to zero win and seal the victory.  Both teams would like to thank the student council, staff and all the crazy fans that attended last night that made it such a great home court advantage.   There will be no practice tonight or Saturday.  Enjoy the holidays and please let coach know today if you cannot make the winter break practices.

  • PLTW
     AHS Receives Project Lead The  Way Certification
     
    Avon High School has received national certification for its Project Lead The Way (PLTW) program. PLTW, a nonprofit organization and the nation’s leading provider of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education programs, offers a rigorous world-class curriculum that allows students to apply what they are learning in math and science class to real-life biomedical science activities, projects and problems.

    The national PLTW recognition program distinguishes schools for successfully demonstrating a commitment to PLTW’s national standards. Additionally, certification as a PLTW school provides students with the opportunity to apply for college credit or receive college-level recognition at PLTW affiliate universities when they successfully complete select PLTW courses in high school.

    AHS Principal Matt Shockley said, “We’ve seen how the PLTW program draws more students into the biomedical sciences and gets them thinking about college and their careers. We are extremely proud to be PLTW certified and ecstatic that our students are eligible for college-level recognition, which may include college credit, scholarships and admissions preference.”

    As part of the recognition process, Shockley, and a team composed of teachers, staff, students and members of the community submitted a self-assessment of the school’s implementation of PLTW’s Biomedical Science program. A site visit by a PLTW trained team followed. PLTW’s team met with teachers, school administrators, counselors, students and members of the school’s Partnership Team. A PLTW school’s Partnership Team (sometimes referred to as an Advisory Council) is comprised of teachers, counselors, administrators, post-secondary representatives, business and industry professionals and other community members who actively support the PLTW program within a school.

    “Avon High School should be congratulated for demonstrating once again its commitment to PLTW’s quality standards,” said PLTW President and CEO Vince Bertram. “The real winners here, however, are Avon’s students. Students benefit from PLTW’s innovative, project-based curriculum that encourages creativity, problem solving and critical thinking. We look forward to many more years of working together to prepare Avon students for the global economy.”
