SCIF students see significant score improvements BY JENEA DOMINGUEZ It's that time of year when Avalon High School's Senior class is taking Scholastic Aptitude Tests, writing essays, applying on the Common App, and all around stressing about what they are going to be doing for the next several years. This year Susanna Savitt scored an 800 on her Critical Reading portion on her SAT, a perfect score. Michelle Rufino saw drastic improvements in her scores in Math and the Essay. Ariella Markowitz and Alex Pedroza also saw some big score jumps. These students all participate in the Santa Catalina Island Fund for Higher Education, an organi- zation that provides SAT tutoring, mentoring, and college counseling to the local students of Avalon.

The students said they want to thank Elisabeth Huart, who spent her summer teaching skills and tutoring them to get the best scores possible. The SCIF itself issued thanks to Shmoop, a web- site geared towards teens in need of SAT test preparation, for donat- ing SAT prep materials. i No golf cart thefts reported in more than one month The following is the Avalon Sheriff's Station sig- nificant incidents report for the week of Jan. 1 to Jan. 7.
