5-3-16 Student Mission Briefing

For Tuesday, May 3, 2016 – “L” classes
TNReady Algebra 2 Testing Day
AP Computer Science & AP Physics I tests
2015-16 L&N Student Mission – Own it!

School Ops:
·      Today is TNReady for Algebra 2.  Find your Algebra 2 class in the table below to see where to report at 9:30.  Bring a pencil.  Do not be late! 

·      The Spike ball Genius Hour teachers are hosting a Spike ball and 4 square tournament this week.   April and May is fund raising time for our friends at the Downtown YMCA.  Our goal is to encourage you to donate a few dollars (or more if you like) while playing SB or 4SQ.  We can then give the proceeds to the Downtown YMCA for their fundraiser.  The Y does so much for us in PE and Wellness that we feel it is important to give back to them.  
So come play Spike ball and 4 Square this week during Genius Hour.  We will have awards and gift cards for top players/teams.  It will be a ton of fun and help continue our great relationship with our friends at the YMCA.  Hope to see you all at Genius Hour this week.  
Talk to Mr. Orrick, Waxmonsky, Smith, Ebright, Peterson and Parker if you have any questions.  If we get rained out this week we can finish the tournaments next week.

·      It’s time to vote for PTSA Teacher, Student Support, and Team Support people of the year!  Please go to and place your votes.  Each student gets one vote in each category.  You need to vote by Wednesday, May 4.

·      Congrats to our Ultimate Frisbee team – who went to Victor Ashe Park and played through weather and delays to come away with the District Championship!  (back-to-back Champs – they won the fall league, too)  Now they head to the state tournament in Murfreesboro next weekend.  Good luck!

·      A HUGE congratulations to the L&N STEMpunks FIRST Robotics team for winning the internationally judged, 2016 Media and Technology Innovation Award by Comcast NBC Universal at World Championships in St. Louis this weekend!! Their entry was selected out of over 180 other submissions from 7 different countries, and they were awarded in front of over 40,000 spectators at Championships. The award celebrates a robust digital media experience for audiences in many different mediums (website, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and more) through an outstanding marketing strategy and online presence. You can check out their 2016 submission of the award right here! If you're interested in joining the team next year and working on these kinds of project and more, email Julia for more info at

·      You’ve read the announcements, looked over the itinerary, and considered visiting New York City during Fall Break 2016—now is the time to commit to this trip! We have custom-designed this tour just for L&N students and parents. This all-inclusive tour comes at a very affordable price, totaling $1,052.00. The only money you will need on the trip will be for souvenirs and food on the bus. GOOD NEWS: You can reserve your spot on this trip for only $150.00!   Registration and the $150 deposit is due by May 18.

·      Y-12 Federal Credit Union is now accepting applications for student volunteers to work at the Golden Gryphon Credit Union (located in the Commons) on Wednesdays and Fridays during Genius Hour for the 2016-2017 school year.  This is a great opportunity for students looking to earn work experience or volunteer hours, and student volunteers over the age of 16 are eligible to apply for a paid internship at a Y-12 branch. Come by and talk to current students involved with the credit union during lunch to learn more about it! Pick up an application from the folder on the door of Room 215.

Community  & Guidance Ops:
·      SENIORS are reminded to complete the Senior Exit Survey by this Friday, May 6.  This was sent to you by Mrs. Basner in email yesterday, here’s the link again:

Quote of the day from Henry Ford:

If there is any one secret of success, it lies in the ability to get the other person’s point of view and see things from his angle as well as your own.
