Asian American/Pacific Islander Heritage Month    

Kalpana Chawla was the first woman of Indian descent to go to space, having served as a mission specialist and primary robotic arm operator on the space shuttle Columbia.  She was posthumously awarded the Congressional Space Medal of Honor, and is regarded as a national hero in India.  AAY is having a meeting TODAY in Dr Blais’s room - A408.  We will be celebrating our seniors for all of their hard work with some snacks and sweets! 


NHS Bake Sale                              

“To be, or not to be” once said Hamlet, questioning the misery of human life.  The only answer is TO BE, because today after school in the student entrance, Skyline NHS will be holding a bake sale fundraiser. There will be lots of sugar - the perfect way for all students to enjoy their last days of school… before summer!  The most important key point, however, is to bring cash, because no other payments will be accepted.
