2/11 Announcements

THE CAFE STAFF would like to thank all of the students who participate in our school breakfast and lunch programs.
Higher participation enables us to improve and expand our program. We have recently placed the “Sub Central” cart in
the courtyard. It is located in the same spot where the morning “Donut Hole” cart is located. At lunch, the cart features
cold items such as subs, PBJ, salads, and muffin yogurt platters. The “Tender Vendor” is still located in the concession
stand by the school entrance. We are hoping that “Sub Central” becomes as popular as the “Tender Vendor”. Our goal is
to lessen the lines in the cafe while giving students easier access to obtaining a meal for lunch. Again, we thank you for
your support!
COPS AND TEEN TALK Wednesday, Feb 12, @3:15pm at the Community Center. Pizza, drinks, snacks and Community
service hours available.

IN HONOR OF BLACK HISTORY MONTH we celebrate “Hair Love” for winning an Oscar on Sunday night for best
animated short. It is a story of an African American father who learns how to do his little girl’s hair for the first time.
Former NFL player Matthew A. Cherry was behind the short film. In his acceptance speech, he promoted the CROWN
Act, a law that bans discrimination based on hairstyles associated with race. So far, only New York, New Jersey and
California have signed it into law. His guest at the Oscars was DeAndre Arnold, a senior at a Texas high school,
suspended and told he could not walk at his graduation in the spring unless he cuts his dreadlocks. Here is the short film.
