Peer Assistants and Leaders
The TUSD Robotics program provides an authentic learning opportunity for students to develop and build skills in engineering, design, collaboration, innovation and computer programming. This highly competitive program has representation from every school in TUSD. Students showcase their learning at tournaments where they have the opportunity to qualify for the VEX California State Championship. This program is a reality due to the generous support from TUSD and the Tustin Public Schools Foundation.
|Speak Up Club||
SPEAKING IN PUBLIC and MEETING STRANGERS are 2 things we all fear. The HEWES SPEAK-UP CLUB is modeled after TOASTMASTERS INTERNATIONAL and helps students practice and develop interpersonal skills and build their confidence speaking in front of peers.
Our club for 6th, 7th and 8th graders meets after school on most Fridays. Students participate in:
PARENTS are encouraged to come to Speak Up Club meetings to be observers, conversational partners, and judges, and will be asked to bring SNACKS for the Club, usually once per school year, when their child leads the meeting as TOASTMASTER. We always want to improve and enrich the Club, and your suggestions are encouraged, especially if they foster IMPROVEMENT in COMMUNICATION SKILLS.
Please indicate your interest to Leo Cummins, M.D., Club Coordinator for 19 years at LHCMAC@icloud.com .
