Eagle Scholars Honor African American History Month
The Eagle Scholars Program has been including many different activities during February as part of African-American History month. In Language Arts and Social Studies students have taken a detour to honor some of the contributions African-Americans have made to America and to the world. Some of the people the scholars have chosen to research and complete different projects on include Susie Taylor, James Baldwin, Rosa Parks, and Maya Angelou! In Social Studies, the scholars are detailing an African-American hero in American history. In Language Arts, student had to create a one page biography detailing major accomplishments of lesser known African-Americans and the lessons their lives can still teach us.
National Junior Honor Society
Pierce’s National Junior Honors Society induction ceremony was a great success, over 90 students were inducted and many of them were Eagle Scholars. Eagle Scholars and Society Officers Melody Nelson, Gabby Clotfelter, and Josephine Gentner gave their remarks and formally inducted the new members. Mr. Parsons also graced the audience as the keynote speaker. A text version of his speech entitled “Be Great, Be the Impact” can be found here. The Eagle Scholars Program is proud of all new and returning inductees and is excited to see how they will shape Pierce this year.
Every Wednesday, unless otherwise noted, Eagle Scholars have the opportunity to attend a Scholars only study session. This takes place in the cafeteria from 3:15 pm to 4:15 pm. Students are not required to attend, but it is a nice opportunity for scholars to get some homework done and study with their peers. Mr. Parsons is also there to help scholars who may need it. Sometimes high scholars come back and tutor too!
