NEW SCHOOL YEAR, NEW DREAMS

Hey Everybody! I hope you are all doing well and settling in to take on the new school year! I heard, for those of you who went, that the College fair was awesome! WHAT ELSE DID YOU DO? I am sorry I couldn’t make it, I was attending a Pitzer Faculty(the professors) retreat talking about DIVERSITY and Affirmative Action Issues! Real complicated stuff (I’m still trying to figure it out! lol). I hope you got to meet Carlos! He is a Pitzer Freshman who will be helping Scott and I and will also be a mentor to all of you! Carlos is an awesome dude! There will be some more Pitzer Students this year that will be joining us on our Pipeline Journey! Please LOOK out for Announcements from Us about the SAT, Cal Grants, FAFSA, and More! I am eager to see you all soon!

TUESDAY 26TH! PERPITUBE,AQUA CALIENTE,VIDEO GAME CHALLENGE!

 

Today I was proud of you all. Everyone participated and was actively engaging. The presentation in the morning on Isolation and Connection was very fascinating. It was great to see you all working on hard on your ‘mini’ video project, that was challenging! I thought that it was super awesome to see all your intelligent words and drawings on the wall! Oh and those Oatmeal Cookies were Delicious Right!? Keep up the great Work!
 
CHECK OUT THE KIDS GETTING INTERVIEWED HERE

The Drive to Aqua Caliente felt long to me but we made it! Boy IT WAS HOT! We learned alot about Commerce and the importance of making connections, not just through social networking but also through old fashion one on one conversation! There were representatives from Disney,CBS,NBC,AT&T,VERIZON,& MORE! It was great! it was alot to take in but continue to think about the importance of connections!

THE VIDEO GAME CHALLENGE!

The kids were challenged to pitch an idea for an Original Video Game! It had to be creative,lucrative, and COOL! THEY ONLY HAD 10 MINUTES TO CREATE AND 90 SECONDS TO PRESENT! I WAS VERY PROUD OF ALL THE KIDS BECAUSE THEY ALL TRIED SO HARD! A few lucky winners got passes to Disneyland and Universal Studios!

Keep Learning and Believing in yourselves!
