Project Graduation Planning Meeting 2/9 @ 10am 
Project Graduation Planning Meeting Saturday, 2/9 at 10am at the Austin Public Central Library (710 W. Cesar Chavez St.)  Thanks to those who have already volunteered to head up prizes, food, ticket sales and the TX Dot grant.  Please join us if you want to help plan the all night party that will take place on graduation (between May 29th and 30th). If you can't make the meeting but want to help plan, email  We especially need coordinators for marketing, creating a video, set up/signage/decorating, bag check, hauling outdoor lights to the East Communities YMCA, and clean up. Even though the majority of helpers are senior parents every year, we need lots of junior parents too to learn for next year and support senior parents who are busy with their graduates on graduation.
Counselor Appreciation Week 2/4-8
Just a head's up - Counselor Appreciation Week & National School Counseling Week is February 4-8.  PTSA will be doing something special for all of the counselors in the building, but students and families telling their counselors how much they appreciate them is the best. 
Advocate for the state to pay it's share for public education
