Today in History:  On this day in 1897 San Diego State University was founded as a “normal school”, which is the historical term for an institution created to train high school graduates to be teachers by educating them in the norms of pedagogy and curriculum.  The school opened with a class of 135 students and by the late 1950s, the student population was at 10,000, and it was the fourth largest California state institution. By 1987, the university's population peaked at nearly 36,000 students and attained the status of the largest university in California and tenth in the nation.

This means you cannot leave campus during tutorial or brunch or if you have a hole in your schedule. Possible consequences for closed campus violations are detention and/or Saturday school.  If you are leaving campus for an appointment, you must pick up an off campus pass from the Attendance Office prior to leaving.

CLUBS:

Paper Airplanes Pen Drive Week:  Do you have extra pens lying around unused in your house? If so, consider donating any working pens to refugees that don't readily have access to writing utensils and educational supplies. Paper Airplanes is holding a Pen Drive beginning Monday, March 9, 2020 to Friday, March 13, 2020. There will be a box in the office for you to drop off all pens. All pens will be donated by the end of the week to the International Rescue Committee in San Jose.

 

Aletheia:  Lynbrook is extremely diverse in its student population and, likewise, diverse in its sexual orientations. However, the topic of sexuality is still not openly discussed due to the stigma that still exists around the topic. Please consider filling out this poll to help Aletheia promote open discussion that allows students to explore the topic of sexuality.

Athletic Events Postponed:

While we have already postponed and cancelled a great deal of school activities in the last two weeks, we are now postponing all athletic games and competitions effective, Friday, March 13 until further notice. 

While all games and competitions between schools will be suspended, regular practices will continue as scheduled. 

This decision was made in partnership with all the school districts in our league. Please know that this decision was made with a great deal of thought and care for our students, and while we know there will undoubtedly be disappointment about this announcement, we believe it is in the best interest of our students and consistent with the guidance shared by the Santa Clara County Public Health Department.
