Lead Today, Tomorrow, For Life
Here are your announcements for today, September 20, 2017:   It’s Celebrate Freedom Week!  Wednesday is Abolitionist movement which led to the Emancipation Proclamation.  When Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863 and the passing of the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments which freed the slaves, gave them the right to vote, and made them full citizens in the United States, it had been a long time coming. Both men and women known as abolitionist because they were trying to abolish slavery had been working for more than 30 years to end slavery in the United States. Two sisters involved in the abolitionist movement not only wanted to free slaves but also free women of their oppression. Sara Grimke, along with her sister Angelina, was the first women in the United States to publicly argue for the abolition of slavery. Cultured and well-educated, they had first hand knowledge of the condition of slaves. Their own father was a strong advocate of slavery and keeping women “in their place.” The sisters’   lectures about abolishing slavery created violent criticism because it was considered altogether improper for women to speak out on political issues. This made them aware of their own oppression as women, which they soon began to address along with abolitionism. The Grimke sisters insisted that both blacks and women deserved equality, not special treatment but simply the equal opportunity to succeed. They died before seeing women given the right to vote but because of their efforts women will gain the right to vote with the passing of the 19th amendment in 1920. Celebrate Freedom Week!  Bastrop Bears take on Cedar Creek Eagles this Friday, September 22 at 7:30 p.m. at Memorial Stadium. Ticket prices is $7.00 adult and $3.00 student. All tickets at the gate are $8.00, so buy your ticket early. You can purchase your tickets Monday-Thursday in the front office before and after school and on Friday during your lunches in the Foyer.

We will have collection jars in several office locations and in room 119.   FCA is sponsoring a Gatorade/Powerade drive for Rockport for hurricane relief efforts.
