- We are currently in the process of creating and scheduling field trips for the year for all classes. Juniors will travel to the Asia Society on October 25th for an amazing field trip.
- Council Members will be conducting the Academy Open House on October 22nd at Travis High School. Look for a volunteer signup shortly.
- Academy T-Shirts order forms will be given out this week for purchase. This shirt is required for all field trips and volunteering events. See the picture below.
- Academy Spirit Shirt order forms will be given out this week for purchase as well. This shirt is not required, but would be a great way to show our spirit on Fridays. See the picture below.
