“Through thickest gloom look back, immortal shade,
On that confusion which thy death has made.” ― Phillis Wheatley
During a time when black people were discouraged from learning how to read and write, Phillis Wheatley, a Senegal/Gambia-born black girl who was kidnapped and sold into slavery, defied them all and published a book of poetry. She’s not only the first African-American to have a work of poems published (endorsed by John Hancock and George Washington), but also one of the first women to do so.
As a teacher walked down the hall before Advisory, Jadon Bumgarner sat against the lockers with his legs stretched out. Without hesitation, Jadon demonstrated KINDNESS and moved his legs so I could easily pass. While this seems a small thing, the teacher appreciated his demonstration of RESPECT and KINDNESS immensely!
Congrats on a great T2!

We are officially starting to collect supplies, so please bring in any travel size hygiene products (things like: shampoo, conditioner, bar/hand soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, etc…) that you might have grabbed from hotels or even pick up a few things from the grocery store or pharmacy.
Bring your items into advisory and we will come around and collect from your advisors room! The more the better!!! If you have any questions please contact Laine Kozlowski at firstname.lastname@example.org.
