LETTER FROM THE EDITOR HEY BROOKLYN TECH KEY CLUBBERS! I am Doris Liang and I will be your bulletin editor for the service year of 2013-2014. I have been in Key Club since my freshman year of high school and I have enjoyed every single moment of it. As the new bulletin editor, it is now my job to keep you guys posted and entertained but I also need your help to make it happen! I would really appreciate it if you guys can send me articles, jokes, or any problems you might have, to doris@thetechkey.com. My goal this year is simple. It is to help you, the members, the core of Key Club get points. I know many of you have different obligations and you can’t attend most of the many events that we have. By the time of the end of the year, most of you are fretting that you don’t have enough points to fulfill the 16 credits that we offer. So, I created more opportunities in the newsletter for you guys to earn points. So please please please send articles, jokes, Dear Editor paragraphs to my email! I will be waiting for it to jam up! Thank you for your support!

Yours in service, Doris Liang Bulletin Editor 2013-2014

Relay For Life

On Friday, April 5th, 2013, Key Clubbers came together, and with a good cause. It was the Relay for Life event at BTHS! Relay for Life is an organization that fundraises and digs deeper into research for cancer. Cancer affects millions of people worldwide, and Relay for Life is helping to find a cure, one step at a time. After giving an initial donating fee to get in, Key clubbers, along with other fellow students, teachers, and special guests, sat down. First, many interesting performances stirred up the crowd. From an outstanding break dancing show to an amusing teacher fashion show, they got it all! Everyone noticed the many luminaria bags centered on the track above. After the performances, we were able to go and buy all sorts of things, ranging from cookies to goldfish (and all money went to Relay for Life). In addition, everyone was served delicious food. Unfortunately, due to the time, I had to leave the event, although I was eager to stay and be part of the rest! Overall, this event was a mix of fun with friends and classmates, along with helping out for a great cause. I am proud that I was part of it all! -Michael Yacubov

Relay For Life Cont’d I attended the Relay for Life event last Friday and had a great time! I donated $10 at the beginning of the event. It felt great to donate money to a good cause, especially since my grandfather passed away from it. During the event, we watched multiple performances from people in our school including break dancers, a ballet dancer, and a talent show. They were also selling many things. They sold hats, paper lantern bags, hats, and balloons. At the end, we got amazing food which included pizza, Chinese food, macaroni and cheese, and sweets. I had a great time hanging out with my friends and was really glad I came! -Hanna Yacubov

Earth Day Neighborhood Clean-Up

Today I attended the Earth Day Neighborhood Clean-Up event. I was a great event that was 3 hours long. We all got green gloves, some tools, and a plastic bag. Then, we split up into groups and went around the neighborhood cleaning the streets up. Towards the end, the people were very nice and gave us all pizza and water. We also got community service hours. It felt great to clean-up a dirty place and help the community out! -Hanna Yacubov On Sunday, April 21st, many people gathered together at Columbus Park and started beautifying Chinatown. One by one, people started to come in and turned into a volunteer. Volunteers were given t-shirts to wear to show what we were doing. After a hour or two, the press conference started and they talked about the purpose of the event. Soon, we were split up into 3 groups since Brooklyn Tech had such a large group. (44 Technites were there! :D) Each with our own trash can and guide, we roamed the streets with our dustpans and brooms. While one pedestrian gave up a thumbs up, another taught us how to efficiently sweep. When it was 2:30pm, we had already reached to the Broadway side of Manhattan and we turned back to the park. At the end, we received the 5 hours of volunteering and a great experience. -Carrie Zhao

Earth Day Neighborhood Clean-Up Cont’d

On Saturday, April 20, 2013, Key clubbers, along with Red Cross members, and even students from several other high schools, came together for a good cause. In celebration of Earth Day, volunteers helped clean the streets around Kings Highway. After forming groups, students were handed gloves and many tools. Then, the work began. The garbage ranged from old orange slices to even socks and old letters! It was great to help beautify the streets of Brooklyn! After a few hours of work (and some laughter), volunteers went to Rite-Aid to get some well-wanted drinks, and then pizza was served. To top it off, we even received community service hours! Overall, this event was a lot of fun, and I was glad that I could help out! -Michael Yacubov

Pick Me Up & Dear Editor 18. Hey girl, what’s your sine? It must be pi/2 because you are the one. 19. I wish I was your second derivative so I could investigate your concavities.

Dear Doris le Editor de KC, My friend's birthday is coming up soon and I have no clue what to get her. Whenever you ask people "What do you want for your birthday?" they either respond with "I don't know" or "I'll be happy with anything you get me" or "Oh no, you don't have to get me anything." What's your advice for picking gifts? Sincerely, Ice Cream Sundae Dear Ice Cream Sundae, You should make a list of the things that define her personality. If you know her well enough, this shouldn’t be hard. After making that list, ask her to choose one of the things on the list, and TADA! That’s what you should get her! I hope I had helped you on your dilemma! Thank you for asking! Sincerely, Your KC Editor
