Students Rewarded For Work In The Classroom Julie Rosenau, Academic Counselor, Julian High School The Julian News 3 Three students from Julian High School have earned AP Scholar Awards this year in recognition of their exceptional achievement on AP exams. Only 18% of the nearly 1.7 million students worldwide who took AP exams last spring performed at a high enough level to earn an AP Scholar Award. Justina Byrne (class of 2009) qualified for the AP Scholar with Honor Award by earning an average score of at least 3.25 all AP exams combined and a,score of 3 or higher on all AP exams taken. Jenna Madeyski (class of 2009) and Aracely Abarca (class of 2010) qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP exams with scores of 3 or higher: Over 90% of foJr-year colleges in the United States provide credit and/or rigorous placement for qualifying exam grades. Scores are based on a 1-5 point scale with 5 being the highest. A score of 3 is passing. Research consistently shows that AP students who score a 3 or higher on AP exams typically experience greater academic success in college and higher graduation rates than students who do not participate in AP. Currently Julian High School offers AP World History, AP US History, AP Language (alternating years with AP Literature), and AP Chemistry. Several students are also enrolled in online AP courses ranging from AP Calculus to AP Psychology. Family Matters: Get Out And • Play (NAPSA)-In the days before computers and video games, children spent much of their after-school time outdoors-at the playground, riding their bikes and playing sports with friends. The result was a generation of kids who grew up active and healthy. Today, digital distractions give youngsters plenty of reasons not to go outside. A recent study found that youths ages 8 to 18 spend over six hours a day using electronic media, as much as 45 hours per week. "It's no secret that play is key to healthy child development," says Darell Hammond, CEO of KaBOOM!, e nonprofit that encourages playtime and helps to build playgrounds.
