"L" Schedule Day
ACADEMIC PUSH PERIOD – Early Release & Open Campus

·       Any student interested in joining SGA (Student Government Association) next year needs to attend an interest meeting on Thursday, April 25, during 1st and 2nd lunch in the STEM space.  We will talk about plans for next year and set up the email list.  If you wish to be included, please come.

·       An informational meeting for “The Face of STEM” will be held on Thursday the 25th at 9:00 AM, in room 205. The Face of STEM is a club that reaches out to future applicants of our school. We will help the future applicants to see STEM from the perspective of current students.  In order to accomplish this, we will help with shadows, inform schools and future students about STEM, and enable applicants to see how STEM is different and why we are so unique. We hope to see you there!
