Tech’s annual Observation Day sponsored by the AASAP committee (African American Student Action Planners) is set for Wednesday, March 20. This is a great opportunity for AASAP parents and supporters to see what a typical day for their student(s) looks like and to get a first-hand glimpse of the learning process and environment here at Tech. All welcome to participate! Please check in at the table in front of the library (directly facing the front doors) before the start of class. Look forward to seeing you!
Tech’s wonderful nurses and the great staff at TechniClinic are spearheading a Staff Appreciation Day on Wednesday, March 20, from 11 AM to 4:30 PM.

They’re looking for donations of healthy snacks, fruit and veggie platters, and sandwich platters along with paper plates, utensils and napkins. If you can pitch in, please email Nurse Amanda at email@example.com to let her know what you can bring. Thanks!
