CATS Quote for today  Pause before judging. Pause before assuming. Pause before accusing. Pause whenever you’re about to react harshly and you’ll avoid doing or saying things you’ll later regret. – Lori Deschene

CLUBS:

It’s time once again to join the student leadership group, E Pluribus Unum, Out of Many, One. In this opportunity, students have the opportunity to examine concepts of identity, empathy, and advocacy, as well as consider the positive power of inclusion so that everyone has a place and a voice at the table. Please consider participating in this opportunity as we reflect, dialogue and make changes for our school, community and ourselves. Your voice matters so why not “be the change”?! Hard copies of the invitation letter and permission slip are available in the Main Office. Permission slips are due back by October 1.

Are you interested in meeting new people, planning engaging activities while learning about Islam? The Muslim Student Association will hold its first general meeting on Monday September 20th at 2:45 in room 202. We hope to see you there!

Engineering is Fantastic… Women in Engineering are even better. Come to the VERY FIRST Women in Engineeering Club meeting Monday Sep 20th after school in room 147 to find out more…snacks provided.
