2nd Annual: Room 145 May Breakfast

Tomorrow is the day! Our 2nd Annual May Breakfast :) We will have 3 full periods where we will be prepping the food, cooking, eating and cleaning up! It is always a fun time (yummy too!) We will have some awesome Belgium waffles (with awesome toppings), french toast, bacon, muffins, donuts, juice, and milk. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it!

Fearless Friday Event

Our school held the first ever "Fearless Friday" event at school last Friday. It was a huge success! Students got to choose different breakout sessions to attend and were able to see a panel of college students that shared their various experiences. Some of the sessions included: college planning and supports, money management, time management, meditation and yoga techniques, managing stress in the workplace, and good interviewing techniques. As an incentive, students received ice cream sandwiches at the conclusion of the day :)
