4. College Fly-ins and Diversity Programs One of the most important factors is in deciding if a college is right for you is whether or not you can picture yourself as a member of campus. For many students this means a campus visit.  If the college isn’t nearby, however, traveling to visit the college might not be possible due to financial limitations. The good news is that several colleges offer free fly-in programs, travel assistance scholarships, overnight programs and diversity programming that comes at little or no cost to students accepted to their programs! Application deadlines vary depending on the college fly in program you are applying to.

About LaTEENa Power!

 

The LaTEENa Power! Program empowers Latina youth to attain the success they deserve by developing their strengths and envisioning and pursuing their goals. Based on the groundbreaking book, Latina Power!, by renowned psychologist Dr. Ana Nogales, this program invites participants to explore the 7 strengths they’ve inherited from their Latino culture—and then to develop and use these strengths as they visualize their future, set desired goals, confront troubling issues, reach out to mentors, and work toward achieving their dreams.  
 
Session 1 invites participants to take “The 7 Latina Power Strengths Self-Evaluation Test” to determine which of their strengths they need to work on. 

Sessions 2 - 8 focus on a particular strength:  
â – The Creative Spirit  â – The Aguantadora’s Passionate Determination  â – The Comadre’s Networking Ability  â – The Diplomatica’s Discretion  â – The Atrevida’s Courage  â – The Malabarista’s Balance  â – The Reina’s Confidence and Strength  
 
Each of these sessions include:  
Discussing Dr. Ana Nogales’ book Latina Power!; learning about successful Latinas from all walks of life; creating plays, dances, and dialogues that express personal challenges; engaging in group discussions, personal journaling, art projects, visualization exercises, letter writing to mentors…and more.  
 
Issues Covered in the LaTEENa Power! Program:  
Self-awareness * Personal goals and dreams * Valuing education * Successful role models Friendships and peer pressure * Teen pregnancy * Confronting dating abuse Depression and suicide * Alcohol and drug abuse * Avoiding gangs * Overcoming fears Earning, budgeting & saving money * Parental expectations versus personal expectations * Finding a mentor * Honoring and respecting yourself

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 25th, 2018
 
1. Denim Day Today: For the past 19 years, Peace Over Violence has run its Denim Day campaign on a Wednesday in April in honor of Sexual Violence Awareness Month. The campaign was originally triggered by a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped her rapist remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim. Peace Over Violence developed the Denim Day campaign in response to this case and the activism surrounding it. Since then, wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault. In this rape prevention education campaign we ask community members, elected officials, businesses and students to make a social statement with their fashion by wearing jeans on this day as a visible means of protest against the misconceptions that surround sexual assault. This year’s Denim Day is April 25, 2018.
 
PBS-HSA students will have the opportunity to support Denim Day by wearing jeans (non ripped) and their uniform tops. 
 
The counseling team will host an information session tomorrow April 25, 2018 during lunch in the counseling office. Pick up your passes today during nutrition, lunch and after school.

1. #Enough March 14th Action 10:00 am-10:17 am: 
 
Dear Fellow Wolves,

In light of the recent incidents involving gun violence all over the nation, I would like to invite you to participate in the #ENOUGH: National School Walkout today Wednesday, March 14, 2018. 

This action will take place as a way for us to stand in solidarity with our peers here and across the country to demonstrate a unified front against gun violence in our schools and a greater need for school safety. We each have the responsibility to participate in society and engage in the relentless pursuit for justice. 

The event is set to begin at 10 a.m. and last until 10:17 a.m. We will be peacefully walking out of our classes for 17 minutes in remembrance of the 17 individuals who were killed in the recent school shooting in Parkland, Florida. All members of our community are being asked to gather on the blacktop in a line to form the shape of an "E" for Enough, to demonstrate the magnitude of the issue and negative repercussions of gun violence. We will take an aerial photo of our efforts. At 10:00 am please follow the direction of your teacher.
 
It is our hope that this event brings about awareness to these issues and provides the platform for intentional discernment and action.

In Solidarity,
Dr. Mac
