@renaissancehs student Andrew Gordon will work alongside NASA subject matter experts at this year’s STEM Enhancement in Earth Science (SEES) Summer High School Intern Program. This nationally competitive program is sponsored by NASA, the Texas Space Grant Consortium and the University of Texas at Austin Center for Space Research and is designed for highly-motivated high school students, pulling applicants from across the country. Selected students receive exposure to Earth and space research while learning how to interpret NASA satellite data alongside scientists and engineers. Gordon was inspired to apply for the SEES internship while participating in a variety of courses through the West Ada School District’s Career & Technical Education (CTE) Program. He will graduate from Renaissance High School’s International Baccalaureate Career Program in 2024. In addition to the SEES internship, Gordon was accepted to take part in the Idaho Science and Aerospace Scholars (ISAS) Summer Academy, a residential summer program that also engages with NASA-developed curriculum. #wearewestada #proudtobewasd

THIS crew right here….100% passing their state Technical Skills Assessment for Early Childhood Education PLUS three national Child Development Associate candidates! We’re not even finished with the semester yet, and I know they’re exhausted (sometimes crying) from lesson planning, teaching, writing reflections, and preparing their final professional portfolios. The grit they show every day showing up, dedicated to children and themselves as a pre-professional is amazing!!!
On Thursday, April 6, 2023, the Scentsy Family Foundation will presented West Ada School District’s School Nutrition Services department with a check in the amount of $32,000 at West Ada’s District Service Center. The donation is to be put toward uncollected student lunch balances for the 2022-23 school year. Throughout the past six months, Scentsy committed to donating a portion of sales to causes that focus on children, families, and communities. The West Ada uncollected student lunch balance was identified by the Scentsy Family Foundation as a recipient. “We’re grateful that West Ada is continuing to provide lunches regardless of a child’s ability to pay. We believe happy, healthy families build vibrant communities, and we want to help ensure that hungry children have access to at least one meal during the day,” said Kellie Floto, Scentsy Director of Philanthropy and Community Relations. “We challenged our Consultants across the U.S. to support their local school districts, and we hope this contribution sparks more donations from businesses or individuals across the Treasure Valley.” Scentsy’s $32,000 donation will have a significant impact on West Ada’s uncollected student lunch balance which started at approximately $100,000. Since the Dig for Change initiative in early March, the West Ada Education Foundation received approximately $15,000 in donations toward the uncollected lunch balances. “We’re so grateful for Scentsy and their Foundation. We’re always going to make sure our students are fed, and their generous donation helps us do that while minimally impacting the district’s general fund,” explained Kristen Homer, WASD School Nutrition Assistant Supervisor. Should a lunch balance remain uncollected through the end of the year, the WASD general fund picks up the tab. “A fed student is a learning student, so Scentsy is positively and directly impacting West Ada student achievement,” continued Homer. @scentsy #wearewestada #proudtobewasd
