Officer Savage wants to remind you at home and at school to not leave valuables, bags, and backpacks in plain sight in your vehicles. There have been a string of thefts from vehicles in the Sheldon area. Criminals focus on cars with items left out for all to see. Even if you know there’s nothing but PE clothes in your bag, the criminal doesn’t. Take these items inside or conceal them in your trunk. Also, please avoid leaving your vehicle here overnight if possible. Thank you.
Hey Sheldon, you’re invited! Join our Unity Project Work Party this Friday after school. We’ll be building the newest addition to the Sheldon community: the Irish Outfitters clothing shop! Get the shop ready for its Grand Opening! Help assemble furniture, make signs, and choose our most fashionable clothing items to display. Pizza will be provided, so RSVP in the front office by 4pm Thursday. You can also participate by donating gently used clothes to the bins by the front office this week. Irish Outfitters hopes to see you this Friday after school. RSVP today!
In recognition of Black History Month, we’d like to remember Katherine Johnson, who was one of the mathematicians memorialized in the movie, “Hidden Figures.” Ms. Johnson did calculations for the first moon landing and the space shuttle program, and she calculated flight paths for John Glenn’s first flight orbiting Earth. Before he flew, John Glenn always asked for Ms. Johnson to check the computer’s calculations. When President Obama awarded Ms. Johnson the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2015, he said, “In her 33 years at NASA, Katherine was a pioneer who broke the barriers of race and gender, showing generations of young people that everyone can excel in math and science, and reach for the stars.”
Women’s Advocacy Group is having a meeting today in room S3! Join us at lunch for a discussion about future WAG meetings.
Spring Athletes! Have you registered yet? Practice starts on Monday, and you must be registered to participate. See Nancy in the athletics office with any questions.
Students, there has been an excessive amount of litter on our campus. Please do your part and put garbage and recycling in its proper place and not on the ground. Let’s have some Irish Pride and keep Sheldon clean.
For Black History Month, we would like to show our appreciation to the “Hidden Figures” women Mary Jackson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Katherine Johnson. They all worked at NASA as mathematicians during the space race, a segregated time. They were known as the “human computers”, and they helped solve problems for engineers. Recently, the last of these women, Katherine Johnson, passed away at 101.
It’s here! The Raza Unida Youth Conference takes place this Friday at the University of Oregon! If you are going on this field trip please come to a short meeting Thursday, during lunch, in room B15 to pick up the schedule and get final details about our travel times. Please check in with Ms. Albrich or Ms. Sitton if you are not able to attend the meeting.
