Cedarwood Honored As Distinguished

Today, October 23 at 2 p.m., Cedarwood Elementary officially celebrates its 2014 California Distinguished School award with a fun-filled rally for students and staff.

The half-hour-long festivities will include a performance by Cedarwood’s choir, as well as messages from current Cedarwood Principal Teresa Barber and retired principal, Colin Hindergardt.

On April 30, four Clovis Unified elementary schools – Cedarwood, Dry Creek, Pinedale and Riverview – were named 2014 California Distinguished Schools by the California Department of Education. Only 424 schools in the state earned this prestigious recognition.

The California Distinguished Schools Program focuses on California’s students and their right to an equitable and rigorous education, according to the California Department of Education. The program identifies and honors those schools that have demonstrated educational excellence for all students and progress in narrowing the achievement gap.

Congrats To This Clovis North Student!

Congrats To This Clovis North Student!

Spencer Howells, a senior at Clovis North High School, earned a top composite score of 36 on his ACT college admission and placement exam. Nationally, on average, less than one-tenth of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earns the top score. Among test takers in the high school graduating class of 2014, only 1,407 of nearly 1.85 million students earned a composite score of 36.

 

The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science. Each test is scored on a scale of 1-36, and a student’s composite score is the average of the four test scores.

 

ACT test scores are accepted by all major U.S. four-year colleges and universities. Exceptional scores of 36 provide colleges with evidence of student readiness for the academic rigors that lie ahead.
