Poway High School's AVID program is helping The Tag Project!!


The AVID program at Poway High School did a fabulous job of helping with The Tag Project on Friday, October 9, 2009!!! They finished writing 1400 names from the Manzanar database, plus stamped and tied about 2600 tags in preparation for the kits!!! That is a LOT of tags for a short time period!!

Many thanks to those who helped, and extra thanks to the teachers, Karen, Sherry and Megan, and of course a big hand for Linda Canada and Gwen Momita for leading the group!!

The Tag Project thanks you all!!!!

YOWZA! Poway High School's AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program has stepped up to the plate, thanks to Karen Kawasaki and her colleagues Sherry Lockie and Megan Ellsworth. On October 9th, three separate classes will be hearing lectures by Linda Canada, from the San Diego Japanese American Historical Society and will be working with the students on The Tag Project!
