Congrats to our @duartefalconbbasketball Team for taking 3rd in the Take of the Turkey Tournament, 66-58 over hot shooting Estancia!
Today at 11:50 a.m. NASA/JPL is going to attempt a spacecraft landing on Mars! Thank you Duarte High School Science Teacher, Mr. Traeger, for stoking our students' excitement about this event. Only approximately 40% of the unmanned spacecraft that have ever attempted landing on Mars have been successful, which is why eyes will be on the Mars InSight Lander by the science and technology community and our students today. 
You can also watch this event live! The links to show the landing are as follows.

1) You can go in through the Mars InSight web page and then scroll down to where is says “Watch InSight’s landing on Mars.” The link to the Mars InSight web page is https://mars.nasa.gov/insight/ .

2) A more direct route would be to go straight through NASA TV. The link to NASA TV is here. https://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/#public 
Also, Mr. Traeger has teamed up with another science teacher named Bernadette Vargas from Etiwanda High School in Rancho Cucamonga to do a presentation with learning stations and telescopes looking at the planet Mars this coming Wednesday, 11/28/18 from 4:30-8:00 PM at the Monrovia Public Library. Please share this opportunity with students and families you know that may be interested!

@creatingcreators A #Repost of @h_i_p_p_o_life for Veterans Day. 
The film in production when this photo was taken was “Un-Visible.” The project’s intent is to spread awareness for suicide prevention within the Veteran community. Honor veterans by supporting them to keep moving forward!

@duartebandguard congrats to you! Note from Director Shouse: Savanna Field Competition- 2nd Place Band, 4th Place Guard. Our road likely ends here, but I’m super proud of the progress these kids have made in the short amount of time I’ve known them. Looking forward to watching them continue to improve this year!
