American women have long played key roles in government and politics, yet the contributions of many have been greatly undervalued and under-recognized.

She was a critical figure in the accomplishments of the New Deal and was the first woman to serve as a cabinet secretary.

Freshmen ASB is spreading kindness across Serra one random act at a time. 5th period ASB has been assigned the privilege of Random Acts of Kindness. Twice a week three students will be selected and called out of class. During the Random Act, the chosen student is crowned, given a bag of candy and inspirational notes, and told that they are greatly appreciated by Freshmen ASB. Random Acts of Kindness will continue throughout the rest of the year. So, Serra students, stay on the lookout because you might be chosen to receive a special surprise to brighten up your day!
