GRYPHON MISSION BRIEFING
For Thursday, January 12, 2017 – “L” day
L&N Student Mission – #Own it!
· Come join us on Saturday for 2 special events honoring the spirit of service and empowerment espoused by Martin Luther King, Jr:
o From 8:00 – 12:00 join us on campus for clean up and beautification. Just show up and earn some service hours!
o Then hop on over to the Regal Riviera Cinema on Gay Street to talk to women and minority STEM professionals to learn about programs to prepare you for STEM careers (from 12:00 – 12:50) before going to see Hidden Figures at our special showing at 1:10. You can buy tickets online or at the box office. Bring your friends, bring your family!
· Are you interested in math? Mu Alpha Theta is hosting part two of a math competition at two separate times: Friday, January 13 at 8:45 AM and Tuesday, January 17 during Genius Hour in Room 207. You can talk to your Genius Hour teacher if you choose to take the test at this time. The two categories are "Logarithms and Exponents" and "Circles, Parabolas, and Polygons.
· Remember – no Genius Hours this week – you should report to your Advisory class after 2nd period. You will have the usual lunch period you have on Fridays. There is an activity planned for each day to help you get ready for this semester and plan for next year.
· Student drivers: if you park off campus please note that due to changes in downtown parking you should not park in the KMA lower parking lot anymore, even for a short time. Students are encouraged to use the Blackstock lot or the corner of Grand and WFP Drive. Note that the metered street spaces are time-limited, too.
Community & Guidance Ops:
· If you took the PSAT and have not yet picked up your paper score report and test booklet, these are still available in the Guidance office.
· Seniors – deadline to complete your FAFSA to be eligible for TN Promise next year is January 17. See your guidance counselor NOW if you have not completed this form yet!
