The Launch Pad's Teen Advisory Council (https://thelaunchpadteencenter.org/teen-advisory-council/) has organized an event with Eric Bailey (http://baileyinnovationgroup.com/eric) that allows student to miss several classes to attend.

It has been promoted through school email to students and parents, daily announcements in school, and flyers.

The first event, held last Fall was not open to adults but only teenagers. This upcoming event on Monday April 19 is open to students, giving them the opportunity to be excused from their regular classes and, in addition, offering tickets to adults for $10 each.

Here is the flyer language:
