TE Morning News - February 27, 2020 
  • For those of you who were inspired by Ryan Parker, our presenter on Monday, and if you like how poetry looks, sounds and feels, then come grab a permission slip in guidance from Mrs. Kozik. Ryan will be running one workshop per grade in March. Stop by to get the information and permission slip. Space is limited and will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. So don't miss out and stop down today!

  • Continuing our spotlight on Black History Month, today we feature Katherine Johnson. The pioneering NASA mathematician whose story was told in the film "Hidden Figures," Ms. Johnson was essential in developing the math necessary to successfully and safely launch rockets to get astronauts to space, and the moon.  Ms. Johnson fought against sexist and segregational policies to become a trailblazing mathematician.   Ms. Johnson was honored by NASA with naming the Katherine Johnson Computational Research Facility, a facility at NASA's Langley Research Center in her honor. For her many contributions, Johnson was presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the country's highest civilian award, by President Barack Obama in 2015.  Ms. Johnson died Monday at the age of 101.
