1 AMERICAN HERITAGE AMERICAN ACADEMY Patriots UPDATE Newsletter for Heritage/Academy Parents March 2013 Have a Heart Food Drive The 2nd Annual Heritage Helping Hands Have a Heart Food Drive was again a great success! We collected a total of 2,532 pounds of food for Feeding South Florida (FSF), and we thank you for your amazing support and donations. All of the donated cans and boxes of food were sorted by the Lower School students with the help of our wonderful parent volunteers and teachers. The food was delivered to the FSF warehouse and will be given to those in need. Our goal this year was five cans/ boxes per student. The top three classes who brought in the most donations were: Mrs. Mikkelson s Class 8 cans per student, Mrs. Foreman s Class 5.47 cans per student, Mrs. Diamond s Class 5.05 cans per student. Congratulations! This was also a special year for us since we collaborated with the Upper School PTO, and we thank them for their amazing help and participation. We look forward to joining together again next year! We all play a fundamental role in creating awareness and teaching our children the gift of giving and helping others! It is this team effort that motivates our younger generation to continue these efforts, and we look forward to continuing to help end hunger in South Florida through the years. Again thank you to the AHS/AA administration, faculty, families and most importantly the students! (See Photos, Next Page) Model UN Team Competes at Chicago Best Team in State Heritage students met with much success when the Model UN group attended the recent competition/conference in Chicago. Advisor Mark Gruskin s team set all kinds of records, winning 29 awards, including nine first place Best Delegate awards. In all, 29 out of 42 students won awards, 18 of them were top honors (Best or Outstanding Delegate), eight of these first place awards. Last year, only one delegate (Morgan Baskin) received a first place award. It appears that experience is paying off! After their success in Chicago, the Heritage team will be ranked #1 in the state of Florida and in the top 10 nationally. The team dominated the competition. Almost 70% of Heritage students won awards, while across the board, less than 5% of all the students at the conference received awards. Over 200 schools were represented at the conference (2800 total delegates); many of the schools had 100 delegates. Heritage was certainly the top school present, and at this point, the school is likely one of the best Model UN squads in the nation. Mr. Gruskin states, We also garnered the attention of the national Model UN website, They wrote about us, took pictures of us for their website, and their director has already ed me congratulations, urging me to stay in touch. Model UN top winners at MUNUC XXV: Best Delegates (top award): Ashley Wood Logan Abbott Emily Rowe Emiliya Trakhtenberg Daniel Llanes Max Brenner Lindsay Abbott Sean McCready Eleven others won Honorable Mentions. Outstanding Delegates: Jared Sutton Paulo Nascimento, Jr. Daniel Notman Andrew Klauber Ethan Goldstein Jude Alawa Brendan Krimsky Kendall Finlay Lindsey Spring Josh Elkin

2 Have a Heart Food Drive Over a ton of food was donated to Feeding South Florida because of the generosity of Heritage families. Alumnus Adrian Aurrecoechea Follows His Dream at UCSF School of Medicine Heritage alumnus Adrian Aurrecoechea, Class of 2008, is currently attending the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) School of Medicine with plans to graduate with an M.D. in The Academic Ranking Of World Universities, published from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China, recently named UCSF the #2 best medical school in the world after Harvard. Adrian received a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies with an Emphasis on Intercultural Communication from Pepperdine University in Adrian explains that his commitment to medicine began at Heritage with the classes he took and Pre-med club opportunities, such as the Christmas gift-giving to children with cancer at the pediatric oncology unit at Broward General. His senior year medical internship in emergency medicine at Broward General provided an interest in the interactional, emotional, and patient care side of medicine. At Pepperdine, he developed an interest in health disparities and underserved populations around the world and around the United States. Adrian informs us, Through my college years, I ve done medical work with underserved and impoverished populations in Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Miami, and Santo Domingo. In 2011, in Camden, New Jersey, I participated in clinical research pertaining to the prevention and prediction of outcomes related to sepsis in patients with infection, based on lab values and diagnostic tests performed in the emergency department. We worked to find correlation and causation between test results and clinical outcomes. Adrian states, In my Ethics of International Politics class at Pepperdine, I read a book, Mountains Beyond Mountains, about Paul Farmer, a doctor who works through the Harvard Medical system as well as in rural Haiti on tuberculosis and infectious disease care and prevention. This was one of the quintessential moments of my education and encouraged me to make medicine and caring for people with the intention of healing them holistically a lifestyle, and not just simply a profession. More Community Service... The Make a Wish Club participated in the annual Walk For Wishes at Markham Park on February 2. The club raised over $8,000. Congrats to the students and advisor Sherrie Roisman. He also credits the Heritage Pre-med Program for some of his success. The medical prep classes at AHS helped me excel in my clinical experiences in college, as well as classes in medical school and my current clinical hours. AHS Pre-med Club helped me develop my interest in the human aspect of medicine and the life- changing process of earnest and gracious communication with patients. The format of the challenging classes I took at AHS prepared me for the workload and mental exercises I would incur in college. The MCAT and my extracurriculars in college driven by my experiences at AHS got me into UCSF, a top medical school. In photo, Adrian works with children in the Dominican Republic.

In January, the club held a book drive across campus. The Junior and Senior High club members partnered with Lower School s chapter of NEHS. Each division created posters, flyers, and decorated donation boxes, which were placed in classrooms everywhere from the 9000, 8000, and 7000 buildings to all of the Lower School classrooms. As well as overseeing the donation, Ian and Lara contacted many local elementary schools in low-income areas, and decided to donate the books to Kelsey L. Pharr Elementary School in North Miami. Ian and Lara reached out to the Office Depot Foundation, as well, which has offered to provide the club with the money needed to pay for the transport of the books. The club will provide the school a complete catalogued list of book titles (entered by hand), and club members plan to visit the school to read to the children.

4 Mock Trial Team Wins in County Competition Excepts from Examiner.com, the inside source for everything local. (2/5/13) The Broward County School Board and the Florida Law Related Education Association (F.L.R.E.A) announced the results of the Annual High School Mock Trial Competition held February 2 at the Broward County Courthouse. Beating out several other teams - including Fort Lauderdale High School and Pine Crest School American Heritage School faced stiff competition for the coveted prize. Students from each of the schools argued a simulated criminal case... This year s mock trial problem was an aggravated battery case, entitled the State of Florida vs. Regan Buschnell. Coached by Fort Lauderdale criminal defense attorney Eric Schwartzreich and well-known Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael E. Gilfarb, they are equally proud of the Heritage Mock Trial Team. As always, I am proud of our team, head coach Schwartzreich told Examiner. They excel and exceed all of our expectations, from winning the State competition in previous competitions to placing in the top 20 teams at the National Competition, to placing in the top five in the Empire Invitational, an international mock trial competition held every year in New York City. I have never seen a more tireless, determined, consistent, cohesive group of students, stated American Heritage program director Nikki Laurie... American Heritage prepares these students extremely well, concluded Schwartzreich, who has coached the team the past seven years. These are high school students who take classes in evidence, constitutional law and trial advocacy. By the time they get to law school they are incredibly prepared and are truly mock stars.

5 The Rise of Heritage s Novice Debaters Over the past couple of months, Heritage s novice debaters have leapt into the spotlight at local and national debate tournaments. In early January, at the Myers Park national debate tournament in Charlotte, North Carolina, four novice public forum teams from Heritage advanced into elimination rounds. Michael Hunschofsky and Ashwin Mahendra made it to octofinals, Max Gazeroglu and Connor Martin made it to quarterfinals, Connor Kickhoefer and Jonathan Fernandez made it to semifinals, and brothers Jake and Brandon Becker made it to finals, taking home second place for our team. Max Gazeroglu and Connor Martin were the top ranked speakers of the tournament. Our novice debaters argued for and against corporate spending in federal elections, and their arguments ranged from the loss or gain of democratic necessities like equality and the voice of the people, to statistical election data and Supreme Court rulings. Hunschofsky, Mahendra, and Gazeroglu have all also had first place wins in Congressional Debate at Florida tournaments earlier this year. Congress newcomer Zachariah Chou also fared well in Charlotte, making it to finals and taking home eighth place in Congressional Debate. Chou also won first place in Congressional Debate at a Palm Beach tournament last month, as did Carlos Vazquez Gomez. Freshman Farrah Sklar won her first first place trophy at the same tournament, competing in dramatic interpretation. Freshman Asha Rampertaap has also won first place trophies at Florida tournaments, competing in dramatic interpretation and extemporaneous duo. Later in January, our teams of Michael Hunschofsky and Ashwin Mahendra, and Max Gazeroglu and Connor Martin, advanced all the way into finals at the national Sunvitational debate tournament held in Davie, Florida. The four took home the title of co-champions. After that, Hunschofsky also made it to semifinals in Congressional Debate at Emory University s prestigious Barkley Forum, one of the toughest tournaments in the nation. Congratulations to all of our novice debaters for their recent successes! Next on the calendar for our debaters are the national qualifier tournaments, which determine which debaters make it to debate nationals. Wish our debaters luck! For more information on the Heritage debate program, coach David Childree at Students Must Register for AP Exams All students who are taking an Advanced Placement Course (AP) are required to take the AP Exam in that subject in May of this year. Students must REGISTER in order to take the exam or an exam will not be ordered for them. Failure to take an exam, will lead to loss of AP weighting. Registration forms will be distributed to students through their AP classes starting next week. College Board has a list of AP test dates posted on their website. (Above) Freshman Farrah Sklar wins her first First Place trophy for Dramatic Interpretation at a South Florida debate tournament in Palm Beach! (Left) Debate Team Captain Jared Sutton enjoys Heritage wins, with novice congress winners at Palm Beach in January: Zach Chou and Carlos Vazquez Gomez won First Place, and Michael Hunschofsky won Second Place.

6 PTO Upper School As busy as we all are, we hope you were able to take time out and join us for our final PARENT UNIVERSITY national speaker of the year. Bena Kallick is co-author of Habits of Mind, an identified set of 16 problem-solving, life-related skills, necessary to effectively operate in a society and promote strategic reasoning, insightfulness, perseverance, creativity and craftsmanship. We were happy to have approx. 100 parents participate and experience the value of active listening and how it empowers our children. We learned firsthand that we all feel valued as a result of truly being listened to, and it is even more important for our children. Junior Thespians Successful at State Competition Last month, the Junior Thespian Troupe attended the state festival in Melbourne. Heritage students participated with 3,000 other Junior Thespians from all over the state. The troupe s one act play Cagebirds received a superior rating. The small group number Get a Load of Toad featuring Dylan Kaplan, Fiona Baquerizo, Kyle Dawson, Kaitlyn Dawson and Brandon Dawson was rated Critic s Choice for Best in Show. Superiors were earned by Sydney Lennon and Gabi Coutinho for Monologue, Brandon Dawson for Solo Music and Abby Lichterman and Fharid LaTorre for Costume Design. Excellents were earned by Tianna Davis and Sydnie Rathe for their monologues; Rebekah Umanksy and Sydnie Rathe, and Tianna Davis and Dylan Kaplan for duet musical; Ryan Cannon & Paula Da Silva for duet acting; and Hilleah Caputo, Sydnie Rathe and Dustin Stabinski for small group musical. Our Coffee Talk sessions also continue to be very popular. Following our February meeting, Luciana Mandal and Kelly Bennett shared with us Great Summer Programs. In March, our Coffee Talk presentation will be about Test Scores and How Colleges Use Them. Coffee Talk sessions follow our regular PTO business meeting and, in addition to providing great information, offer a more informal setting where questions are encouraged. Although there is still quite a bit of school remaining this year, the PTO Board is already engaged in planning for next year. We are ALWAYS seeking volunteers to step up and lead committees, as well as to take on leadership roles in the PTO. If you are interested, I encourage you to contact our Nominations Committee Chair, Sherra Payne. Our March meeting will be Thursday, March 14. We begin promptly at 8:00 a.m. Please join us!

It s called Take Charge of Education, and it s helping the school right now. Here s how it works: Visit Target.com/tcoe or call to designate Heritage, then use your REDcard whenever you shop. When you use your REDcard (Target CreditCard, TargetDebitCard or Target Visa CreditCard),Target will donate up to 1% of your purchases to the eligible K 12 school of your choice.

The more people we involve, the harder the program works for our PTO. If you re already participating, thank you! Check out our school s progress anytime at Target.com/tcoe.
