Welcome to Week 15!

Hello Brahma Parents & Guardians,

Welcome to Week 15, November 16 - 20, 2020.

As we approach Thanksgiving, I am so grateful for our United Student Body (USB) for organizing our Staff Appreciation Week. Led by Activities Director, Janna Van Horn, our student-leaders created poster signs and hung them all over the front of campus, and they made virtual "thank you" backgrounds for staff. Later this week, USB will be writing thank you letters, providing gifts to all staff, and hosting an Ice Cream "Social Distance" Truck for all staff!

Also this week, our Brahmas continue to compete at the highest level in student competitions. Our Mock Trial team competes on Tuesday and our Math Team competes on Wednesday. See below for more details.

Best Regards,

Reuben Jones
