In 2021, it is estimated that 284,200 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer; 2,490 of those will be from the state of Nevada. In addition to this, Black women are 42% more likely to die from breast cancer than other racial groups. This October, to commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month, BSU invites you to participate in “On Wednesdays We Wear Pink.” Each Wednesday this month wear your best pink shirt, hoodie, dress, sweater, scarf – anything you have – to bring attention to this important cause. Students who wear pink on Wednesdays will be given a raffle ticket and entered to win a $15 gift card. You can also go to nevadacancercoalition.com to learn more about cancer screenings, donating, and to take the Paint Nevada Pink Pledge
Video Production will be hosting a horror movie film festival in the lecture hall the week of October 26th. Admission is FREE, but spots will be limited to the first 125 students who arrive. Please come down and support A-TECH’s student filmmakers!

The PSAT is a standardized test that is given to both 10th and 11th graders in the Clark County School District.
The PSAT exam will be given on October 13, 2021, from 7:30 AM until 11:00 AM. All 10th graders are required to take the exam. Students in the 11th grade must sign up and pay $20.00 in order to take the exam. Students can either pay with the banker or go on-line to pay for the exam.
The exam is an excellent opportunity for students to practice taking the ACT or SAT exam which is needed for graduation, and entrance into many colleges and universities. The PSAT can help students to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship, and other scholarship opportunities. Lastly, many colleges recruit students based off of the PSAT.
For more information contact Ms. Ibarra in the counseling office or visit the ATECH website or Canvas Counseling Page to learn more about becoming a National Merit Scholar and to receive study aides for the PSAT exam. Students must pay by September 13th if they are interested in taking the exam. It is free for 10th graders.
