Brahma Briefing

Week Eleven - October 19 - 23, 2020

Welcome to Week Eleven!

Hello Brahma Parents & Guardians,


Welcome to Week Eleven, October 19 - 23, 2020.

At this point in the year, there are less than 8 weeks of instruction remaining in the first semester. Academic discipline and focus on assignments are vital. Time to complete assignments becomes more challenging as the instructional days lessen. I want to encourage all students to push now and keep up the hard work!


This week is Digital Citizenship Week! We are excited to highlight important videos that will be posted on our student's Grade Level Google Classrooms:


  • Monday - Teen Voices: Who are you on Social Media?
  • Tuesday - Is the Internet making you meaner?
  • Wednesday - Screen Time: How much is too much?
  • Thursday - Teen Voices: Hate Speech Online
  • Friday - Civil Discourse Online
