  Proviso East Students Make Seniors Proud

 
 

Mr. Jesse Davis of Maywood said that he was proud of the students that he met while visiting Proviso East High School on April 4.

“This is an example of your students here,” he said, pointing to a few students in the crowd in Proviso East’s social room. “They explained what is offered here (during our tour). They did a beautiful job. It makes me proud to be a taxpayer here.”

Mr. Davis was among the 30 members of the Maywood Senior Club to visit Proviso East on April 4. During their visit, they were treated to a demonstration of the precision of the Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (NJROTC) Color Guard, the excellence of the Proviso East jazz band, the skills of the school’s culinary arts students who provided a lunch of herb chicken and oven roasted red potatoes, and the knowledge and hospitality of the Proviso East Student Ambassadors and National Honor Society in tours of the school and conversations.

  Parents Can Encourage Students to Do Their Best on State Tests

 
  It has been said that it takes a village to raise a child.

The same thinking can be applied to students at Proviso East High School, Proviso West High School, and Proviso Mathematics Academy who will take the ACT and Prairie State Achievement Exam (PSAE) state tests on April 23 and 24, respectively. Students who do well tend to have their parents and others who are encouraging them to do their best.

“Research has shown that students who are encouraged often by parents, family members, teachers, and the community at-large achieve more in the classroom and on standardized tests,” said Dr. Nettie Collins-Hart, superintendent for District 209. “We are thankful for the parents who actively encourage their students and our schools, and we encourage everyone to do everything that they can to ensure that students do their best on state tests.”
