The following announcement is sponsored by Interact Club in coordination with our Guidance Department:

Almost 5 years ago Adam Lanza, a 20 year old man entered Sandy Hook Elementary and fatally shot 20 children and 6 adult staff members. It is known as the seventh deadliest shooting. Lanza showed signs of mental illness at a young age. His mental illness, availability to deadly weapons and past violence caused him to take the actions he did. There were signs but no one every spoke up. As a result of the tragic accident and the signs, The Sandy Hook Promise was installed to help individuals speak up about the signs. To show our support with the Sandy Hook Promise, this week we are participating in "See Something, Say Something" and wearing green today (Wednesday) to show our support in this promise.

As many of you know, Houston, Texas and its neighboring cities experienced a historically severe Hurricane this month, leaving thousands of families and animals displaced with no home and few resources. In response, Mr. Rubin’s 7th period Service Learning Class is launching a fundraiser to aid the recovery process. Beginning Tuesday, October 3rd until Friday, October 6th, there will be a competition among classes to raise as much money as possible, and the winner will receive class points. Donations can be brought, during lunch, to your grade level envelope at the table in the front of the cafeteria. An overwhelming amount of Americans are struggling to simply make it through each day due to this storm, and they need our help.
