Black History Month

As part of Black History Month, today we honor Martin Delany, an African American Abolitionist and the first African American field officer in the U.S. Army. Martin Delany went to Harvard Medical School along with only two other black students, but was dismissed after a short time due to a group of white students petitioning his removal from the institution. One of Delany’s famous quotes is, “Every people should be the originators of their own destiny.”

Adera Foundation

The Adera Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping kids in Africa. A student is collecting soccer cleats for the organization so that kids in Africa can play soccer in good shoes. If you have any old soccer cleats that you no longer use, please donate them in the clear tub out by the FM sign in the cafeteria. Sizes need to be 8-12 for boys and 6-10 for girls.

AP Registration

Attention all students in AP classes. Regular registration is now through March 1st at 11:59 am. Late registration ends on March 6th. Please go ahead and register now! Be careful when registering. You can always add tests later, but you cannot get refunds for tests once you register for them.

See Mrs. Zinn in room 1460 if you have any questions about AP registration or testing.

Do you have old shoes that you never wear?  Interact Club has partnered with Soles4Souls to collect new and gently used shoes for people in poverty. If you have any shows that you want to get rid of, please bring them to one of our collection bins around the school. Thank you and have a great day Jags!
