New Article[edit]

Work delayed[edit]

I removed {{underconstruction}} ''Target completion date: May 1, 2008. Until then please add potential sources and other material to the bottom. [[Plano Senior High School]] can be a model.''. I'll continue to work on this over the next few months but if I work it alone it won't be done any time soon. Please jump in and improve the article. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs)/(e-mail) 03:34, 2 May 2008 (UTC)
