Alright Jets, we're sure by now you have seen the hands posted in the front hallway. Those are just some of the many hands that show how our students are ready to lend a hand. For each hand you create, with a thoughtful idea of how to help someone else, the Bezos Foundation will donate $1.90 to students in Nicaragua and Indonesia. This is such an easy way to help others, as the money will be used to alleviate poverty for those students who typically live on $1.90 or less a day. Our goal is to collect at least 2,000 more so start thinking and cutting! Bring all hands to the ESL room, room 204.
Fiddler cast photos are ready for pickup in the media center; Please make plans to pay and pick up by Monday.

If you get the opportunity over the next few months, you should visit the history museum in downtown Raleigh to view the Los Jets exhibit showcasing the men’s soccer team when they won the state championship several years ago as well as the 2014 team. The grand opening was held last Friday night, and there was standing room only during the showing of a portion of Los Jets. Afterwards, there was a panel discussion with Coach Cuadros and several former players. View our Twitter page to see pictures from the event.
