Learning to Play as a Team!

Dear Buccaneer Team,


I hope that everyone had a great weekend.


I will be brief this week. I have learned so much from our student athletes. They have learned to play as a team and cheer each other on even during a loss. These are the lessons that will guide our students become better human beings: practice, work hard, and persevere because this is the only way we become better at our craft; respect each other as we are a Team and we depend on each other; value the lessons taught by the coach and teammates; and realize that we are stronger as a Team than as individuals.


I was so proud to observe our students display these behaviors this weekend. I was also thankful for the dedicated coaches and countless hours they put in to help our students learn these valuable lessons.


We are so very proud to see our students promote the Buccaneer Way on the field!


May we have a wonderful week!


Here to serve,


Julissa Gracias
