8-19-15 Gryphon Mission Briefing

For Wednesday, August 19, 2015 – “N” classes
2015-16 L&N Student Mission – Own it!

School Ops:
·      Open block students – don’t forget, if you’re staying on campus during your period you must sign in.  If you’re leaving, sign out through the office on the iPads.

·      If you are interested in learning more about, or joining TSA (the Technology Student Association) there will be an informational NEXT Thursday, August 27th in the Mezzanine that will last about 30 minutes starting after school is over. TSA members compete in local, state, and national competitions with events based in STEM and Fine Art concepts. This past summer, the L&N STEM Academy's TSA Chapter received national recognition at the National Conference in Dallas, TX and was ranked the number one high school in the state of Tennessee. With this being said, we ask that you consider joining this club and I hope to see you all the 27th! (Please feel free to contact s727072@student.knoxschools.org if you have any questions).

·      Interested in helping plan and put on events for the school? Join us at a Student Government Association (SGA) interest meeting today at lunch. When it's your assigned lunch, get your lunch and find a seat on the veranda. You'll learn what SGA is all about, and we'll have applications should you be interested in joining.

Community  & Guidance Ops:
·      Want to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship?  They are identified from scores on the PSAT.  Check with your guidance counselor about when to take it – we’ll be giving it at school on October 14!

Quote of the day from Kurt Vonnegut:

We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.

Practice L&N Habits every day: Collaboration, Critical thinking, Design, Innovation, Inquiry, & Professionalism
