The Algebra 1 STAAR Wars competition is under way now, from April 5th – 18th. This event, put on by the Apollo Fellows and Algebra 1 teachers, is a chance for the students to review for the upcoming STAAR test as well as a way for them to earn goodies and prizes. Each day, the ranking of students will be posted outside of each Algebra teacher’s class for the students to keep track of who is at the top. The top 4 students who earn the most points in each Algebra 1 class will then participate in the Final Rounds on April 28th to earn medals, gift cards, and other prizes. Medals will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place team winners. The winners will also be invited to a big party complete with food, drinks, and awards to celebrate their hard work and accomplishments during the event.
Each month, the Apollo Fellows vote for one of their peers to be the Fellow of the Month. On the nomination ballots, the Fellows also submit their comments on why they have nominated a particular Fellow. The votes are then totaled, and the Fellow with the majority vote is selected as the winner. Fellows are nominated for their leadership, hard work, dedication to their students, and willingness to always help out. The previous Fellows of the Month are: December – Stephanie McWilliams January – Gerald La Fleur February – Gyanesh Mittal
