Speaking of undefeated, our Mathletes take their unbeaten record to the Math Madness Tournament this Wednesday. We have been placed in the TOP division and we are ranked #30 in Nation! We go up against Martin County High School from Stuart, FL. They are currently ranked #35 so…it promises to be another exciting battle. Go Brahmas!

Last weekend our Theartre Department lead by Drama Director Jared Kaitz presented one of the funniest plays I have seen. If you missed our play,Suite Surrender, I have great news… the show is still on! This performance will make you laugh and smile so don’t miss it!

Important Updates from our GLCs and the Guidance Office

Happy Halloween!

Reminder, all students may show their Halloween spirit, but please keep in mind our focus on student safety. A few guidelines to follow:

• Students are prohibited from wearing masks

• Make-up or face painting should be very minimal. Staff needs to still be able to EASILY identify a student wearing make-up or face painting. If your face is fully painted, you will be required to wash your face before attending classes.

• Weapons, or replica weapons are not allowed

• Costumes need to adhere to the school dress code and should not disrupt the instructional program during school hours.

If you have ANY questions regarding your costume, please see your GLC before Halloween for guidance or approval. Thank you for you cooperation Brahmas. We look forward to a fun and safe Halloween on campus.
