You will be excused from your classes for the day.
A Creating Inclusive Communities (CIC) Workshop is a powerful interactive human
relations program for those interested in gaining a greater awareness and deeper 
understanding of our diverse community. These highly interactive workshops help 
participants to gain both foundational and advanced understanding of several areas of difference including race, class, sex, ability, and more.
Participation is limited to 40 students. Email your name and why you'd like to attend the workshop to no later than Friday, October 30.

SENIORS: Senior portraits are due to the yearbook by December 18th.  If you would still like a professional photo for the yearbook, photo retakes TOMORROW would be a perfect opportunity.
