We are members of the Night Sky Network which is made of many astronomy clubs and is associated with NASA, JPL, and the Astronomical Society of the Pacific. The purpose of the network is to help clubs with outreach programs. Last year the club did several outreach events including one during the summer. In our club meetings, we have learned about doing outreach as well as how to use telescopes, and astronomy in general. The outreach kits the club has so far are about planets around other stars, galaxies, and black holes. We are second in the nation for putting on events.

Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán (M.E.Ch.A.) is a student organization that promotes higher education, cultura, and historia. MEChA was founded on the principles of self-determination for the liberation of our people. We believe that political involvement and education is the avenue for change in our society.
Each word in M.E.Ch.A. symbolizes a great concept in terms of la causa.
- Movimiento means that the organization is dedicated to the movement to gain self-determination for our people.
- Estudiantil, identifies the organization as a student group for we are part of our Raza’s future.
- At the heart of the name is the use of the identity: Chicano. At first seen as a negative word, now taken for a badge of honor. In adopting their new identity, the students committed themselves to return to the barrios, colonias, or campos and together, struggle against the forces that oppress our gente.
- Lastly, the affirmation that we are Indigenous people to this land by placing our movement in Aztlan, the homeland of all peoples from Anahuak.
NEHS MEChA is having a fundraiser.
We are selling Dia de los Muertos
T-Shirts for $10.
If you’re interested please see me in the IHS office.
