Principal's Message

BRHS Families,

Fall is in full swing; the first quarter of the school year is over, and winter sports start November 7. Congratulations to our fall atheltes on a great season! Also congratulations to our performaing arts groups in a fantastic fall play as well as seasonal concerts and our marching band season.

As students and families reflect upon the first quarter, I want to remind everyone about some valuable reseorces. We have NHS tutoring available in the monrings before school. We also have if students schedules don’t permit coming in early. We have Math Lab every block for study hall students, and various other sources to help if needed. Staying organized and doing your practice is key to performing well not only in class and for grades, but also on required assessments.

Please be sure and check our school web site for "School Updates" as well as "Class of 2023" updates.Additionally, our daily announcements for students are also posted on the school website. Finally, check out our school counseling link for informaiton ranging form Governors School to Credit Through Testing.

Anglela Duckworth says in her bestselling book Grit, The Power of Passion and Perservance, "When it comes to how we fare in the marathon of life, effort counts tremendously." While we teach many subjects and have many activities, helping our students grow in their pursuits and passion can be the most rewarding.

I hope to see everyone at a holiday concert, show, or sporting event soon.

Transportation Awareness Week

Broad Run High School recognized their LCPS bus drivers and attendants during the week of National School Bus Safety Week, October 17–21 for their continuous efforts in transporting our students to and from Broad Run safely.

Student organizations, athletic teams and staff members joined forces to celebrate our bus drivers during Transportation Appreciation Week. Our cheerleaders and volleyball team kicked off the week on Monday by greeting the drivers as they arrived on campus. Our PTSO provided a to go breakfast which included a burrito from Anita’s. CTE classes showed their appreciation by providing goody bags, t-shirts and thank you notes to show their appreciation. The athletic department provided more t-shirts along with energy bars & drinks. Students gave Halloween lollipops and our Gourmet Foods class topped off the treats with freshly baked cookies. The marching band, along with students entertained drivers with celebratory tunes and cheers.

Our bus drivers play a vital role with our school; a role that calls for the transportation of hundreds of students in a safe, orderly, and efficient manner. We were happy to be able to recognize such an invaluable part of our team, our LCPS Bus Drivers.
