20 SEP 04 - During the
September meeting, the Alumni Association voted to provide $580.00 to
fund an edition of the Pointer Newspaper. This will allow
the English Department to print approximately 2,000 issues with about 12
pages per issue. The Pointer is distributed to all students
& faculty free of charge.
Also, the Alumni Association voted to contribute $1,000.00 for the
purpose of sending two teachers to a 4-day conference in Indianapolis,
Indiana. The Chairperson of the English Department, Allison
Blandeburgo, requested this amount with the intent being that these
teachers will learn about the new Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) and
return to the school with the ability to "train-the-trainers" in what
will be expected of our students when they take the SAT.
