Early Learning Students

At an awards breakfast earlier this week, over 400 West Aurora High School students were honored for achieving a 4.0 or above Grade Point Average (GPA) during the first semester of the 2019-2020 school year. Fifty of those students were further recognized for maintaining a 4.0 or above GPA for over 7 consecutive semesters AND were named to the top 5% of the Senior Class!

Congratulations Jewel Middle School

Over 20 Jewel Middle School students were recognized at Monday’s Board of Education Meeting for being named to the "High 5 Crew." This group of students has made a concerted effort to participate in five or more clubs or activities during the first semester alone. Research suggests that the benefits of participating in extracurricular activities include having better grades, higher standardized test scores and educational attainment, attending school more regularly, and having higher a higher self-concept. Go Jaguars!
