Agenda
Update 6/15/08

Looks like we've wrapped up another year! We've been very busy! 

Our chapter attended the REBEL Summit held at Six Flags Great Adventure on May 15th. 

We had our end of the year party after school on May 21st. 

A few of our members participated in Relay for Life on May 31st through June 1st.

Finally to finish up the year we attended the Rebel Music Video Premiere where we presented a poster created by our members summarizing what we have done this year, the Kick Butts Day Powerpoint created by Travis, and the infamous "Jar of Tar". The event went great!

If you would like a copy of the music video, or any of the pictures from Kick Butts Day please contact us.

Also the Music Video has just been posted on Youtube and can be viewed at the link below.

Letter from the Advisors


03/03/08
Hey guys,

 

Trying to keep you as updated as possible. I will admit Marcia and I were rather disappointed at the lack of showing at the last after school REBEL meeting, since it was called on by the members.  We have a ton we need to plan for and will need everyone’s participation to make it work.  The Charter school has agreed that they want REBEL to make a presentation for KICK BUTTS DAY which is in 4/2/08.  We also have movie night coming up on Thursday, March 20th in which you need to plan some sort of introduction/ mini-training.  Finally, Mr. Pollara has agreed to let us do the bulletin board outside of the Student Center since due to the crazy weather we were unable to do our Healthy hearts activity.  Doing this bulletin is an easy activity for our REBEL chapter.  Remember, we need to do these types of things in order to keep our grant funding. 

 

In order to have the most amount of time for our 3/12 lunch meeting, Marcia and I will provide lunch so you guys don’t waste time on the lunch lines.  We really hope to see you all there.  Here is the schedule for the month.
