Show Low High School principal Farrell Adams says they had 140 seniors sign up for the lock-in out of the 180 who were a part of the Class of 2010. Those seniors, he says, brought 60 guests, leading to a record number of lock-in participants. "That's double of what we've had," he said.

Adams says the Parent Teacher Student Organization began meeting in November to plan for the grad night lock-in. He said, the effort took a lot of time not only to plan, but to secure the donations, activities and other things that made it a fun night. Adams said, not only does grad night provide students with a drug-, alcohol- and tobacco-free environment to celebrate graduation, but also a chance to cut loose with those they spent four years, or perhaps longer, of school with. "It gives the kids one last opportunity to come together as a class," he said. The night was not without incident, however. One graduate dislocated his knee early on in the night on one of the inflatable structures. Show Low Police officers overseeing the event tended to him; personnel from Show Low Fire arrived to take him to Summit Healthcare. Adams says he has been in contact with the family and learned the senior was released from the hospital the next day and is recovering at home. He says the family complimented the school for their handling of the incident. Over 30 volunteers helped out at grad night, serving as chaperones or overseeing the different activities. Adams says the school's two resource officers were also available all night, as was Show Low School District Vice President Brian Merrill.
Adams said, they had a huge budget for the lock-in, much of it coming from donations. He said, Navajo County donated $6,000 specifically for grad night, while individuals and businesses in the Show Low area donated over $7,000 in cash and gifts. He said, he is impressed with the amount people gave despite the current economic climate. "I would like to compliment the community of Show Low," he said.

Principal Farrell Adams said he was pleased that Show Low High School was recognized in such a way."It is an honor," he said.

Adams agreed, saying the welcoming nature of the students is one reason Show Low High School was honored as School of the Year."The students enjoy them and the faculty enjoy having them in their classrooms," he said."They're treated exactly the same.That's probably why (the exchange students) enjoy it.They fit right in."Adams said he also attributed the award to the work ethic of Show Low High School.He said since the kids are treated the same, they are also expected to do their work and learn like anyone else.He added the school's goal is to help them increase their English speaking and writing proficiency."We also expect them to improve," he said.Adams also thanked Jones for working with the school and preparing places for the kids within the community.

WMICentral - Show Low AIMS to succeed [cached]

According to Show Low High principal Farrell Adams, Show Low High is doing particularly well.Only five of the 169 seniors have failed one part of AIMS.Adams credits that relatively low failure rate with the school's desire to help their students succeed. "Our objective is to provide these kids with the best education possible," he said.Adams added it was important to remember that AIMS testing is now inclusive of all students, including special needs students.

"Students (juniors and seniors) were assigned as individuals to those tutors," Adams said.Aside from tutors, the school holds special classes in the high school to help students pass AIMS.Adams said the state also gets involved in helping high school students."The state puts out an individualized study guide for each student," he said.Another way struggling students are given help is through an Arizona Department of Education process called AIMS augmentation.To qualify for augmentation, a student must take the AIMS tests their junior and senior years, must take part in remedial programs such as tutoring and pass certain courses with a D or better.Adams said the coursework for AIMS augmentation eligibility is 11.5 credits, with four credits of English, one and a half credits of government, one credit of history, two of math, two of science and one credit of fine arts.
In Show Low, Adams said he is in favor of the AIMS test because it gauges students on what they learned in high school."I think that students should be able to show what they learned and districts should be proud of what they taught," he said. He added that the test can get students ready for life after high school, whether they go into college or the work force.
Adams said he understands the concern that AIMS brings about more testing, but it is necessary for the future."The AIMS is another tool that can help improve the education for our students," he said.
