February is both Black History Month and CTE Month. Each day we will share information linking the two topics.
Space…. the final frontier
As a doctor, engineer, and NASA astronaut, Mae Jemison has always reached for the stars. In 1992, Jemison became the first African American woman to travel to space. She has also written several books and appeared on many television shows including an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. In addition to her many awards, Jemison has been inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame and the International Space Hall of Fame. On September 12, 1992 Jemison, as a Mission Specialist, and six other astronauts went into space on the space shuttle Endeavor.
Thank you to the MPHS math and science teachers who are also reaching for the stars – students, you are the stars. Remember, reach for those “Blue Skies.”
All Fridays in February are Fresh Fridays- Dress for Success Day! Dress your best!
Attention Juniors and Seniors: Please check your email! Miss Ziegler has sent out emails to students who qualify for Mu Alpha Theta (Mathematics Honor Society). There is important information in that email regarding fees and a link to a google form you must fill out so you can be registered as a member. The deadline for paying your fee is Wed 2/21. You must also have submitted your google form by this date. If you do not pay the fee and fill out the form by the deadline, you will not be a member! Please see Miss Ziegler if you have any questions.
Students who were invited to join the National Technical Honor Society for CTE need to get their completed application to Ms. Vaughn by Feb 23rd. Be sure to ask your teachers if they would be willing to write a letter on your behalf, but Ms. Vaughn will take care of contacting teachers, so an actual letter does not have to be written.
REMINDER: Remember to get your parent’s signature on your registration form for next semester. Make sure your form is completed. If you need another form, please see the front office. The counselors will be visiting your second block classes to speak with you individually.
