Technology II is a course that encourages creativity and working with the hands and a variety of technologies
BOTH waiver/permission forms are due this Friday (District and Mt A waiver).  I only currently have 12 passed in, which is not enough to confirm the trip. As well, We will be starting our fundraiser at lunch tomorrow (May 13th).  We are selling '50/50' tickets on a Pseudio gift card (which carries brands such as East Coast LifeStyle, Roxy, Toms, Hurley, Oakley, Volcom, etc).  Half of the ticket sales will determine the value of the gift card (EX: $100 in ticket sales would be a $50 gift card).  Students may be bringing these tickets home to sell and they are available by the cafeteria at lunch :)
