BRAHMA BULL-etin!

Sunday, Oct 2nd through Saturday, Oct 8th

"She stood in the storm & when the wind did not blow her way, she adjusted her sails" - Elizabeth Edwards

Greetings Brahma Nation,

Sorry the newsletter is late. I was away from the computer all weekend and last week was super busy that I was unable to carve time out during the week. This week's newsletter might be a little lighter than usual with pictures but it does have all the information that needed to be shared.


This week is PINK OUT week. Tuesday night is the volleyball DIG PINK RALLY, come out, show support and wear pink! Wednesday is the football game and we again are going to be rocking the pink!


Tonight, Monday, is the Orchestra concert. It starts at 7:00 PM. Tomorrow, Tuesday, is the Choir concert. It also will start at 7:00 PM. Both are going to be in the Auditorium. Come out and hear all the beautiful music our students have been working so hard on perfecting!


Have a great week!



"The best luck of all is the luck you make for yourself" - Douglas MacArthur
