I PLEDGE TO:
NOT text and drive. Starting today, I will be dedicated to driving without distractions. I am making a commitment to not use my phone while I am in the driver’s seat. I will ask my friends and other drivers I know to make the same commitment. I pledge to make a difference.
Los Fuertes is hosting TAF Academy’s first ever cultural night on December 13th. This event is to help members attend the LEAP conference. During the cultural night you can experience many different cultures from different countries without having to leave school grounds. There will be games and performances to keep you entertained throughout the whole night. There will also be food for sale for 5 dollars a meal. Each meal includes two tamales, 1 scoop of Mochi, your choice of desert, and your choice of drink. This is an event you don’t want to miss! If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Denise McLean at
Los Fuertes is a club made up of High School students, whose focus is to encourage all students, specifically those of the Latino race, to go to college. The reason being is because there is a lack of Latino students going to college and beyond. Our goal is to provide information of scholarships for undocumented students, in order to make college more accessible. We are also hoping on attending the LEAP Conference, a conference to encourage students to purse their dream jobs by pursuing higher education. That is why we are planning this cultural night; to raise money for the LEAP Conference and to encourage diversity in our community.
