SCHOOL NEWS

Senior of the Week this week is Gillian Louiso nominated by Mrs. LeBlanc.  She said “I met Gillian last year when she became an ambassador for our office. She is always willing to go the extra mile. For example, after giving a new student a tour of the school she will reach back out on her own to see if that student is settling in.  She has offered her time to eat with students that may be having a difficult time adjusting. I think she is an absolute gem of a person who is always willing to go above and beyond anything that we put in front of her.”  Congratulations, Gillian!  Please come to the office for your prize.

Monday, September 28, will be our first day to operate under the Low Designation Category.  This means that both Cohort A and Cohort B will be attending in-person five days a week.  We will be on a Green Day schedule on Monday with periods 1, 3, 6, and 7.

Today is the day that the Martin Center Sickle Cell Initiative is hosting the 2020 Indiana Sickle Cell Conference from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Anyone is welcome to join several virtual sessions offered by specialists who will provide research updates & findings, strategies for developing a healthier lifestyle to mitigate sickle cell’s effects, and other important information for those who live with the disease, and for those who support the cause in finding a cure. You may still register for this free conference, and you do not need to participate in every session to attend. Registration notifies the organizer to send you more specific information about the conference, as well as links to join different sessions. Visit The Martin Center.org

The BSU celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month by educating ourselves and others about Hispanic heritage. The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon B. Johnson and was expanded to cover 30 days by President Ronald Reagan in 1988. The national observation was enacted into law on August 17, 1988. Beginning the celebration on September 15th is significant because that is the date that marks the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. Locally, Indianapolis has celebrated the month with a free family event called La Plaza Fiesta Indianapolis. This year’s event was held virtually on September 19th.
