This year's fall play, ”Puffs" has two more performances! Thursday, October 28 and Saturday, October 30.

"Puffs" is the story of Wayne Hopkins: a regular boy who finds out he's a wizard and goes to school in England where he makes two best friends and has adventures. This perhaps sounds familiar. But, Wayne is sorted as a Puff. He and the other Puffs simply want to learn how to be wizards and avoid attacks by evil wizards.

Tickets are on sale during lunch in front of the theatre on the week of the show, online at, and at the door before the performances. Tickets are $10 for students and $12 for adults. Get your tickets now at!

Go Brahmas!

Special thanks to USB and Activities Director Mrs. Janna Van Horn for an amazing night at the House of Blues!


Halloween is approaching and as always, we will allow students to show their Halloween spirit, but there are some guidelines we must follow to ensure student safety:

  • 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 (11014.5 of the Health and Safety Code).
  • 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.
