AP Test Prep

One of our fundraising partners is offering a webinar for AP Testing…

Hi Parents,

With the APs coming up in early May, I wanted to share a free resource to help your child prepare for the exams. Revolution Prep is hosting a webinar on March 4th at 5:00 p.m. called “Intro to AP Exams.”

The webinar will familiarize parents and students with the AP content, why they matter, and how to succeed on these rigorous, college-level assessments.

You can learn more and register here.

Many students underestimate the importance of getting additional support in preparation for these exams, especially in 2021 when the exams will look a bit different due to the pandemic. Revolution Prep has great tutoring programs with tutors who specialize in the APs—both one-on-one Private Tutoring and Small Group Tutoring. As experts in online learning with a decade of experience teaching virtually, Revolution Prep’s tutors can make a huge difference in your child’s preparation.

Pak Sisters Create Service Organization

Two of our very own students, Victoria Pak (Freshman) and Elizabeth Pak (7th grade), have created a service organization called “MusicTogether.”

From their website

MusicTogether is an organization that promotes community service through music… Our goal is to spread music and connect virtually to anyone who might be feeling anxiety and pain that these times might bring. If we can help people feel happy and momentarily forget about troubles, why not do it now?

Check out the website.

Thank you Victoria and Elizabeth for sharing this exciting news with us!

Boost-A-Thon: La Canada’s Got Talent

Here’s a chance for your kids to do something fun with their friends, get their 15-60 seconds of fame, and do it for a great cause. Please help us by asking your kids to create a brief video clip for Boost-A-Thon.

Boost-A-Thon: La Canada’s Got Talent is a virtual event premiering on YouTube in December. The two hour show will feature LCHS 9-12 and 7/8 students submitting student-created YouTube type videos, as well as performances in music, choral, theatre, LCTV, comedy videos, and more.

We’re asking all students to submit fun content over the next few weeks and submit their videos to LCHSBoostathon@gmail.com.

Please go to the Boosters website for more information.

Students, please make short videos (15 seconds to 1 minute in length) with your iPhone or home video camera and send us the digital files as MP4 or QuickTime Movie formats. Submissions are due by Monday, November 2nd!
