Welcome to Week 37! This week, we will step back in time and learn about the human branch of the evolutionary tree.
Last week was the latest in a long string of really tough weeks for our country. Rather than try making a light-hearted video introduction, I am simply asking you to visit the Future Voter registration page on the Washington Secretary of State website. You can register to vote as early as age 16 so you can then exercise your right to vote as soon as you turn 18. For many of you, turning 16 is still a year or two away. Remember, you also cast your vote every time you spend money. You have a choice about where to spend money, so make sure the money you spend is going to people, businesses, and causes that are worthy of your support. Finally, commit to lifelong learning. Your high school education is just the beginning. Please make the most of it. Education opens doors you may not even realize are there. Be brave, open all the doors, and keep them open for all who come behind you. Let’s get to it.
