YESS at Adams City

 

Congratulations Graduates!

It was the last week of school before finals at ACHS. Students had extra time to complete missing work and study for their finals in their YESS classes. This week students learned about resumes and cover letters. Students had the opportunity to critique several resumes and discuss what they should and should not put on their resume, how to format them, and effective ways to communicate their skill sets. In some classes students are working on their own cover letters and resumes for extra credit.

This weekend was the high school graduation for ACHS students! Angel, Fernanda and Tony (former YESS student) all received top honors for maintaining a 4.0 GPA or higher over their four years of high school. Fernanda gave a beautiful and impassioned valedictorian speech about overcoming challenges and fears and not giving up on your goals. She discussed overcoming her fear of public speaking while addressing a stadium full of people.
Congratulations Angel, Fernanda, Grace, Julissa, Noah, and Ricardo on graduating high school! The YESS community is so proud of all of you.
