Gryphon Announcements for 4/25/14

For Friday, April 25, 2014
 “L” Day

·      Let’s make today (Friday) STEM PRIDE day.  Students are encouraged to wear your favorite STEM t-shirts or school colors!

·      We need to practice professionalism and leave SGA campaign posters alone.  There have been a couple instances of signs pulled down – this is NOT acceptable.  Please help us out and model the grown up behavior of respecting other people’s property and efforts throughout this campaign.

·      This Friday, 4/25, parents need to use alternate drop off and pick up locations.  Worlds Fair Park Drive will be closed to traffic as they set up for the JDRF Walk this weekend.  Please make plans now!

·      Next Wednesday, April 30, we will distribute yearbooks during the Early Release hour.  There will be a few extra you can purchase on-site for $70 cash.  Plan now and bring your signing pen!

·      Thanks to your overwhelming response to the Reading Festival at World’s Fair Park in May – all the volunteer slots are filled!  Thank you Gryphons!

·      Sports physicals will be available on April 26th at 8:00 a.m. at Thompson-Boling Arena.  These physicals will be good for the 2014-2015 school year. The cost is only $10. Physical forms are available from the L&N STEM athletics website. Please bring a physical form to participate.

·      Summer and Scholarship Opportunities: check the College/Career webpage for summer programs in business, accounting, test prep, architecture, materials science, engineering, and more. Deadlines are soon.

Quote of the day from Robert Goddard:
It is difficult to say what is impossible, for the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow.
