Thanks to the support and encouragement I received at Alverno, I decided to step outside my comfort zone and pursue an advanced art class. Then, in sophomore year, I decided to become a part of the Hair and Makeup crew for the plays and musicals. Thanks to Alverno, I was able to discover my creative side.Alicia L. '17
A special congratulations to juniors Cami Lee '19, Precious Perlas '19, and Julia Vallen '19 who premiered their documentary "The Hidden Homeless" in the Learning Technology Center last Friday. The 30-minute documentary was filmed by the girls as a part of their Social Justice Service Project and features women and men speaking about the importance of the #SheDoes movement, which is calling on Mayor Eric Garcetti and the City of Los Angeles to provide shelter for 1,000 homeless women living on the streets of L.A. During the event, the girls collected feminine hygiene products that will be donated to Shower of Hope. Great job ladies!! We are so proud of you! #AlvernoHeightsAcademy #AlvernoHeights60 #AlvernoStudents #AlvernoGivesBack #SheDoes #HiddenHomeless

This morning, 17 members of the #Classof2019 and #Classof2018 will be sitting for the AP English Language and Composition Exam in the Learning Technology Center. The AP English Language and Composition course aligns to an introductory college-level rhetoric and writing curriculum, which requires students to develop evidence-based analytic and argumentative essays that proceed through several stages or drafts. Students evaluate, synthesize, and cite research to support their arguments. These girls have been working incredibly hard over the past year to prepare for this exam with their teacher Ms. Cynthia Cales P'12. Good luck girls, we know you will do a great job! #AlvernoHeightsAcademy #AlvernoHeights60 #AlvernoAcademics #AlvernoAPExams Now, you can test your AP English Language smarts with the question below: In 1891, Irish author Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) observed, "Disobedience, in the eyes of anyone who has read history, is man's original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made, through disobedience and through rebellion." Wilde claims that disobedience is a valuable human train and that it promoted social progress. Write an essay that argues your position on the extent to which Wilde's claims are valid. Use appropriate examples from your reading, experience, or observations to support your argument.

For today’s Teaching Tuesday check out this article about the new book “The Confidence Code for Girls” written by Claire Shipman and Katty Kay. This book is a guide for young girls to learn how to take risks and build confidence. Claire states “You build confidence by taking risks and struggling and failing and eventually mastering something. You need to be taking action to build confidence. But the system we’ve all set up is one that creates this army of young girl perfectionists.” This book is a great resource for girls everywhere and a reminder that failure leads to growth, not defeat!
