    Nic Schaedig Takes 1st Place

     

    Nic Schaedig represented Mid City iJag at the NSLA (National Student Leadership Academy) on Tuesday October 15th. The students had the opportunity to do an essay on their iJag story and then iJag representatives choose those who would represent their story well at competition.   Nic had to tell her personal story and how iJag helped her become who she is today.   All 40 students that attended on Tuesday told their personal story and then had to choose between 4 categories to compete in; Public Speaking, Math, PBL Showcase, or Employability Skills.   Nic choose Public Speaking and received the highest score, making her come in first place at the competition, receiving a medal. Nic is the first student from Mid City iJag to go to competition and win first place.   Nic is now on her way to Washington DC with iJag for the next step in the competition.   Please help us in congratulating Nic on her accomplishment and wishing her well on her way to DC in December. Way to go Nic!

    Our MAV Market is open for business! Throughout the year we teach our students what it means to be a MAV:

    • M = Make Meaningful Relationships
    • A = Accept Feedback and Adapt
    • V = Value Ourselves and Others
    • S = Show up Ready to Learn

    Students who demonstrate these skills are recognized with MAV Money! MAV Money is an electronic system and it allows us to keep track of how much MAV Money each student gets. This week our MAV Market opened. Students were able to “buy” items using their MAV Money. On our first day of the Market, 58 students cashed in 1,045 MAV Money tickets! If you have any items you’d like to donate to our MAV Market, we are taking donations! The MAV Market will be open again this Friday!
