Announcements 10-12-12

Tech Girl Day

October 11th is International Tech Girl Day. In honor of this day, designed to promote careers in science, math and technology for girls, St. Albans City School held two PEP Rallies. Our 4-6 girls met on Wednesday, and 7-8 will meet on Friday, with Joan Cavallo, Lucie deLaBruere and Erica Bertucci to talk about why it was important for girls to consider these careers. Through videos, data and a walking survey, students are encouraged to broaden the opportunities they consider, such as the Cosdesmyths class, Rosie's Girls, and Cybermission. We are proud to support our girls in looking at all of the opportunities that are possible for them.

Sunrise Club

Congratulations to Miss Katie and Miss Vicki for their amazing work to create a fun and sustainable SunRise Club.

This week the governor visited St. Albans City School to recognize a new partnership with the ‘Y’ that will allow us to expand the Sunrise Club. The governor talked to students about the importance of staying healthy by making the choice to eat nutritious meals and exercise. He also answered questions from students who are studying government, about the job of the governor. At the end he received a SACS Everyone Counts Water Bottle and tried to Hula Hoop.
