    12/18/09: The first semester of our first full LIGHTS year has concluded successfully. Currently, there are 100+ LIGHTS students in grades 9-12. Due to a comprehensive and successful support system (tutoring and multiple layers of intervention), our attrition rate is marginal. We are looking forward to an equally successful second semester. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

    11/19/09: Internship planning for our Seniors (21 students total) is underway. On six full days during the second semester, the students will engage in hands-on and authentic training experiences in labs, doctors' offices, and clinics throughout Aurora which will give them a taste of careers in the medical field. The application process is rigorous and requires a large deal of accountability from the students, thus helping prepare them to succeed in their post-secondary and work force endeavors.
    10/19/09: The newly created IB/LIGHTS small learning community has proven to be a highly successful framework for students who are enrolled in either the IB programme or LIGHTS, or both. The IB LIGHTS team--teachers Mary Morrow (Health Sciences), Jennifer Van Gundy (Science), John Gaskell (Science), Cari Corley (Math), Tom Bergen (Social Studies), Colette Elliott (Social Studies), Christina Matteucci (Language Arts) and Cathea Irons (Language Arts)--has collaborated with great success to help our community of LIGHTS and IB students excel.
    10/10/09: Freshmen LIGHTS students have started Saturday Academy. On ten Saturdays spread out over the first and second semesters, close to 30 9th graders will immerse themselves in the ins and outs of careers in the health sciences, with hands-on projects, in-depth research and field experiences. The culminating event will be a commencement ceremony at the end of the school year with final presentations attended by APS district leadership, parents, community members, and LIGHTS partnership representatives.
    09/25/09: The first semester of our first full LIGHTS year is in full swing! The newly adopted Project Lead the Way curriculum has helped optimize opportunities for students across socio-economic, ethnic, and linguistic planes to embark on a career in health sciences. More than 75% of students in the program have a second language learner background, or belong to an ethnically diverse group. Our students are successful because we care! Student Advisor Thomas Lopez and LIGHTS counselor John Scruggs closely monitor student performance and achievement. Together with the LIGHTS administrator and the IB/LIGHTS instructional team, they provide academic and language interventions for struggling students, closely communicate with parents, and, most importantly, hold students accountable.
    08/05/09: Starting with the 2009/10 school year, APS adopted the Project Lead the Way curriculum to be taught in the Health Sciences class (see http://pltw.org/Biomedical/biomedical.cfm for more information). Teacher Mary Morrow attended a two-week rigorous teacher training in order to be optimally prepared for teaching this course.

The Health Sciences teacher will be able to use Promethean technology in order to provide access to the web-based curriculum, among other things.

    06/22/09: 2009 Aurora LIGHTS Summer Institute--40 APS students from Hinkley, Aurora Central, and William Smith High Schools aged 16 and older, among them close to 20 Hinkley Academy students, have embarked on a six-week journey (June 22 - July 31) into college life and learning with 4 weeks of job shadowing, test preparation, lectures, and research opportunities and a two-week residential event starting July 20, 2009. The learning will be high level and rigorous in order to prepare the students for their post-secondary experiences in an authentic way. In order to be admitted, students had to complete an application package consisting of teacher and personal recommendations, a student essay, a parent commitment page, and a current transcript.
