A prominent figure in Black History 
Robert Morris produced by Media Arts 2 student Ayame (Kenny) Owona is the focus of our prominent person in black history. Please see the video linked to his name for a short video produced by one of our Jaguars.
Social Media misuse
 
Please be advised that commentary associated with the use of weapons at school, even in jest, requires that the Department of Homeland Security be involved. Don’t make a mistake posting something that you find “entertaining” that references serious incidents, such as school shootings. There will be consequences including, possibly, federal charges.
 
Student Movement Guidance
 
Great work on keeping the hallways clear and the building quiet at the end of last week. This represents the daily expectation for our building. We will institute a modified pass policy this week. No more than one student can leave the classroom at a time. Hallsweeps will continue with students captured in the hall sweep spending the period in ISS. Repeat offenders will receive swift and decisive disciplinary actions. As we close the 2nd quarter, let’s focus on keeping teaching and learning the priority.

The Rainbow Club- BLM Action Week
The Rainbow Club is participating in the BLM at School Week of Action, from January 31-February 4, promoting activism and empowerment within our school community. Every day we have prompts based on the 13 guiding principles of BLM. Any clubs, teachers, or students are encouraged to participate! Check out our presentation from last year.

Day 3
Today’s Guiding Principles: 
  • Transgender Affirming
  • Queer Affirming
  • Collective Value
Today’s Prompts:
p.s. these are some of my favorite prompts >:)
  • Share any questions or experiences you have about what it means to be transgender or what people you know (or you) think about it.
  • Think of ways that your parents and society taught you about what it means to be a girl or a boy. Have you ever felt limited by expectations about who you were supposed to like, what you are supposed to look like, or how you are supposed to act?
  • Who are you aware of – in your family, neighborhood, city, country, or world – whose safety and happiness is threatened due to forces beyond their control?
  • What do YOU need people to know about you in order to make YOU feel that you and/or your CULTURE is appreciated and respected?
Feel free to send in any responses, comments, videos, poems, artwork, etc. Please submit to this google form. Also, take a look at the attached posters.

Support our Student Journalists via SNO Donates
 
We have set up a donation through SNO to help our student journalists. SNO Donate makes it easy to collect donations through our SNO website from family, alumni, and community members who want to support your journalism program.
 
Community donations will support the student journalists of Charles Herbert Flowers. Your contribution will allow us to purchase equipment and cover the annual website hosting costs. Please go over to the website now. Every dollar helps! https://chfhsnews.com/
Time to start thinking about AP!!
 
AP registration has begun! The Advanced Placement program allows our students to access rigorous, college-level coursework. EVERY student should be thinking about taking as many AP classes as possible prior to graduation. Please reach out to Dr. Boykins at chauntia.bego@pgcps.org if you have more questions.
