Indian Trail Middle School sixth graders (from left) Bryce Wilde and Julian Cahue paint two snorkeling masks glued together during Art Club. The club is creating art from discarded scuba diving equipment such as masks, fins and wetsuits. Their artwork will be sold during the school’s Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math night in April to raise money for the nonprofit Dive Heart.

MESSAGE FROM DISTRICT 202
50x4

Hello, District 202 Education Partners,

Here is this week’s selection of D. 202 news and information:

census 2020, everyone counts!

The 2020 Census will be conducted this spring. April 1st is Census Day! It is vitally important to our community that everyone be counted.

Here is some basic information about the Census.

Did You Know?

An estimated 5 percent of kids under the age of 5 -- or about 1 million young children, more than any other age group -- were not counted in the 2010 Census.

It is vitally important for families to count and include all children of every age on the 2020 Census. 

Census data help determine our legislative representation in Congress and our share of $675 billion in federal funding. Our area's federal funding attached to each person, including children, is lost for another 10 years if everyone isn't counted. 

Census data help determine our legislative representation in Congress and our share of $675 billion in federal funding.

This year, for the first time ever, we will be able to complete the Census on our phones and computers – and of course the “old fashioned” way, too, on paper!

 

Remember, COUNT EVERYONE, BECAUSE EVERYONE COUNTS!
