FREE MINDFULNESS SESSIONS

You are invited to attend the 6 weeks Mindfulness sessions.  Recent research provides evidence that practicing non-judgmental, present-moment awareness (a.k.a. Mindfulness) changes the brain, and it does so in ways that anyone working in today’s complex education environment, and certainly every leader, should know about.

hispanic history

NATIONAL HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH | Sept 15 - Oct 15 ...learn more

Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. / The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting on September 15 and ending on October 15. It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988, on the approval of Public Law 100-402. / The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September18, respectively. Also, Columbus Day or Día de la Raza, which is October 12, falls within this 30 day period.

alumnusThe Dickinson Press recently profiled Football alumnus Tray Boone. After helping lead local Narbonne High School to its first city title he came to West where he split time at wide receiver and running back, totaling 1,600 yards of offense. From West, he caught the attention of Dickson State (N.D.). While at Dickinson, a play he made even made it into ESPN’s Top 10. Of his time there, Boone said, “It's peaceful. I like it…The chance to play football, that's great. But the chance to get my degree, to get this piece of paper that's going to really set my life in the direction I want to go; that's probably the best thing I'm getting out of this situation. That's what I wanted. I'm more than thankful for it."…see story at http://www.thedickinsonpress.com/sports/blue-hawks/4120602-long-road-glory-dsus-boone-chased-football-la-dickinson#.V-NdIiyewAI.facebook
