GLI is a club that supports girls around the world in education and are trying to give them the supplies they need. The club is having a bake sale at Lombard and Leavenworth from 10:30 to 2 o’clock. This is all on Saturday, November 10 so stop by to support the club! We meet every Monday during lunch in Mr. Guenza’s class. The leaders of the club are Gemma and Sabina. Every meeting we talk about how we can help people, possible fundraisers and sometimes we play games about things that need to change like in Kahoot.
You can get applications from Ms. Blanchard or Mr. Kaplan. If you want to get in, Ms. Blanchard said to put Lowell as your first choice because it is such a competitive school that they don’t look at applications unless Lowell is the first choice. The campus type is urban (schools classified as city school by the National Center for Education Statistics). This high school is really big, in 2015-2016, there were 2,685 students. Lowell has an auditorium with 1,500 seats.

It was April 8, 1993 that Ellen Ochoa became the first hispanic woman to go into space. Ellen was in the Discovery Shuttle for nine days while working on important research about the Earth’s ozone layer. Ellen Ochoa has gone on three space flights since totalling to 1000 hours in space.
And, as if her being the first hispanic woman in space wasn’t enough for her, in 2013 Ochoa became the 1st Hispanic director, and 2nd female director, of the Johnson Space Center in Houston.
