Meeting 11-29-12

We will be working on a lot of projects in the next few weeks and after break!

Kenneth and Ellie will work with the Colonel to see if they will write an article about human trafficking using the survey.

Asia will start organizing a movie night for Taken--look out for info on Facebook about when it will be so you can attend!

The group that volunteered to help with the fugative project will have a planning meeting on December 6th at 7:00 am in room 211. That's Stephanie, Sarah, Mandy, Ellie, Rachel, Michela, Melissa, Mikey, Jess, and Tess.

Remember to check the Facebook group between now and the next meeting for project updates!

Meeting 11-14-12

Today we talked about human trafficking, the equivalent of modern day slavery.

Here is the slavery footprint quiz, so you can find out how many slaves work for you.

And here is the video we didn't get to watch in class today from Love 146. Check out their website too!

Think about how we could raise awareness of this issue within the school for our next meeting.

FreeRice Posters

Because of the hurricane and not being able to have posters made and approved, we are going to change plans--instead, Haley is going to make a flier that we're going to get approved and hang up ASAP. Thanks to everyone who volunteered to make posters though, it was great to see so many people volunteer to help with our first project!

To adapt to less time to promote the competition, we are also going to try to do lots of promotion through Facebook (it's easier because we don't have to go through any approval processes!). Please look out for when we post info here or on the Facebook group and help out that way!
