SPELL-A-THON 2012 IS 
ASTRONOMICAL!


Kline School students raised $6,500

AMSAT's FOX-1 Satellite*

HUGE THANKS 
TO ALL OF OUR STUDENTS AND THEIR SPONSORS!

ENDEAVOR COMES HOME

September 22, 2012:  

We Californians had an exciting day yesterday as the shuttle Endeavor made its way to its new home in Los Angeles. 

For those of you who may have missed it, Mr. Butler captured some nice footage as it passed over Belmont Shores. Despite the intense glare, Mr. B got lucky and “blindly” tracked Endeavor aboard a modified Boeing 747 as it bid farewell before retirement.
