Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America. The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson. It was later extended by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period of September 15 - October 15. The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September 18, respectively. Also, Columbus Day, or DŪa de la Raza, which is October 13, falls within this 30 day period.

What is College Readiness and Leadership Program (CRLP)?
Our mission at School of Science and Technology (SST) Public Schools is to prepare each student for higher learning in a safe, caring and collaborative atmosphere through a quality learner-centered educational program with a strong emphasis on math, engineering, science and technology. SST's vision is to lead our students from the classroom into the world as productive and responsible citizens... and even Nobel laureates.
Reaching to these mission and vision, we would like to introduce one of our new program called College Readiness and Leadership Program (CRLP). Students at SST Schools have been participating in numerous local, statewide, and international competitions and have received many awards and trophies in the field of science, mathematics and computer technologies. We enhance our students level one more step and prepare them to top universities in USA.
CRLP program is designed to prepare our selective students to these top universities called IVY League Schools. These schools prepare futureís leaders. When we check their admission process we see that they require top academic success with perfect SAT scores, voluntary public service, personal development, physical fitness and expedition/exploration.
CRLP program will be a full school year program for our students from 6th thru 8th grade.With CRLP we will be able to prepare our students on academics, athletics, character education and career building areas. CRLP program will have multiple selection requirements which are diagnostic test results, average grade of previous year, discipline records and teacher recommendations.

New Drop-Off Plan
Dear SST Parents/Guardians, Starting Monday, September 8th, we will implement a new morning drop-off procedure. This is being done to cut back on wait times and allow your children to get to class by the tardy bell at 7:55 a.m.
Starting Monday you will be allowed to drive into the main recess area just as you do now for dismissal. There will be a teacher and safety patrols in place to escort your children from your vehicle. If your child normally walks in through the walkerís gate, they will still be allowed to do so.
