The Girls Tech Camp: Girlhood Remixed offers girls who have completed fifth grade through those who have graduated eighth grade access to digital tools, not only to help them grow interests in technology but also to allow them to grow as valuable members of their communities by exploring what it means to be a girl today. Camp director Mavis Beckson, a doctoral student in NMSU’s English Department’s Rhetoric and Professional Communication program, describes herself as a “gender advocate with experience in working with non-profits serving to empower and support women's education.” The camps takes place Monday, June 10 through Friday, June 14. It is designed to empower girls, enlighten them of the possibilities to create technical projects beyond traditional learning, and bridge the gender gaps existing with respect to technologies. Sponsors include Wells Fargo and the NMSU’s Gender & Sexuality Studies program in the Interdisciplinary Studies Department. The registration fee for each camp is $50 per child, due on the first day of the camp. This camp will end with a public showcasing of the websites, videos and other works created by the girls involved in this year’s program in the early evening of Friday, June 14.

Dear LADH Families, As you may know, the Public Education Commission (PEC) voted not to renew LADH’s Charter which meant that LADH would close at the end of the 2018-2019 school year. As you know, LADH filed an appeal to the PEC’s decision with the NM Secretary of Education, Dr. Karen Trujillo. Dr. Trujillo has reversed the PEC’s decision and has ordered the conditional approval of LADH’s charter for a period of two years with conditions to be determined by the Charter School Division (CSD). We are very excited to share this news with you and are aware that this also means we must continue to work together as staff, students, and parents, to address our academic deficiencies to ensure LADH continues to serve students them the best education while at LADH. Thank you for all your support, Melissa A. Miranda --------------------------------- Estimadas familias de LADH, Como tal vez sepan, la Comisión de Educación Pública (PEC) votó para no renovar el contrato de charter de LADH lo que significaba que LADH cerraría al final del año escolar 2018-2019. Como saben, LADH apeló la decisión del PEC con la Secretaria de Educación de NM, Dra. Karen Trujillo. La Dra. Trujillo ha revertido la decisión del PEC y ha ordenado la aprobación condicional del contrato charter por un periodo de dos años con condiciones que serán determinadas por la División de Escuelas Charter (CSD). Estamos muy emocionados de compartir esta noticia con ustedes y estamos consientes de que esto significa que debemos continuar trabajando juntos como personal, estudiantes y padres para abordar nuestras deficiencias académicas para asegurarnos que LADH continúe sirviendo a nuestros estudiantes para darles la mejor educación mientras estén en LADH. Gracias por todo su apoyo, Melissa A. Miranda
