On Saturday January 18, 2014  the Rising Scholars  at Huron high School hosted Saturday School.  Saturday School is a student-led project designed to raise academic achievement for all students at Huron High School.  It is an opportunity for ALL students to collaborate and work together to prepare for finals in all subject and content areas including Advanced Placement courses. We are proud to say that we hosted 185 students. We are also proud and appreciative that over 20 Huron staff members gave up their Saturday morning to support students

Saturday School requires planning.  The Rising Scholars schedule meetings with their coordinator  and administration to prepare to host  students. The RS students are responsible for every aspect of Saturday School.  From securing the building space, advertising and soliciting teachers, they are required to make sure that the event runs efficiently.  It is their responsibility to see that  all students and staff are supported and surveys and evaluations are available for all participants.

In order to enhance the success of Saturday School, the Rising Scholar Program partnered with the National Honor Society, Key Club, and staff for academic contributions and  with community  sponsors to provide snacks.
Rising Scholars would like to THANK all volunteers and participates for making our event successful. We would also like to send a special thanks to the Greenhouse Store at Huron and Dimo’s for providing snacks for our event.
