From Ms. Pascoe:  1/12:

This week is Tobacco free teens week.  Did you know…IN THE US, 540,000 PEOPLE DIE A TOBACCO-RELATED DEATH EVERY YEAR? We are asking for students and teachers to wear our school colors in support of being tobacco free this Wednesday, February 14th. There is no safe level of exposure to environmental tobacco smoke. If you have parents, relatives or friends who smoke, ask them not to smoke indoors or in the car, even if the windows are open, smoke can still get trapped inside. Join us in the Cafeteria during your lunch to sign a smoking stinks pledge, and learn more about the harmful effects of tobacco.

enslaved Black people escape to freedom–including her parents and several

in Maryland in 1849. Slaveholders had a $40,000 reward for her capture.

She was known as “Moses of her people.” She lived for eight

years in St. Catharines in Canada and then moved along with her parents

to a home in Auburn, New York where she lived until she died at

96 years of age. Name her.
