"Inside those gym walls"

Inside those gym walls, there is confidence

That if bottled could sell for millions

There’s no question of “if” or “maybe” or “not sure”

But it’s “when” and “of course” and “I know”

Smiles come easy in the basketball hours

With emotions swelling high from within

Shared enthusiasm tugs at hearts and showcases hope

Waiting on moments of perseverance and glimmers of brilliance  

Inside those gym walls, there is dedication to carry on

Scrapping and digging for each and every achievement

Knowing that a miss is not a fail but a reminder

Those accomplishments aren’t always easy

Without a try, there can be no success

And one shot is simply not enough

Expectations of triumph weigh on all shoulders

But pride and determination are strong enough to hold it all

Inside those gym walls, there are lessons

Lessons that can’t be taught – but are learned

Tenacity, willpower, and bravery

Endurance, strength, and resolve

Recklessness, courage, and happiness

Sportsmanship, integrity, and honor

All exist inside those gym walls

Congratulations to Susan Grant who has been selected to receive the 2017 Principal's Award. The award is given in recognition of a high school senior's academic excellence, outstanding school citizenship, and leadership. Read more here.

How does a heart grow?
BY Kit Potelle
How a heart does grow?
It might have been the first practice we had
Those nervous smiles edged with uncertainty
Turning genuine when unclear became clear
That realization of what this was about
Perhaps it was the warm-up circle
That night before the first game
Seeing many become one

Shouts of "I believe" ringing in the gym
Maybe it was the first basket that was scored
Just seconds into our start
Taking some of the anxious butterflies away
Giving a hint of excitement to come
Possibly it was the pointing to the crowd
The airplanes down the court
The fist bumps and high fives
Or the celebrations for any score
Was it the fans that came in?
Wondering what the buzz was all forThe community praising that "new team" 
Sharing joy and cheers with all there

I wonder if it was the off court stuff?
The recognitions in the hall
The standing ovations at assemblies
When the names weren't known beforeI think it was the confidence

That could be seen growing among them all
Heads held a little higher
Standing taller than before
So when words escape me
And I try to explain what this did for me
All I can think of is this and much more
And realize... It's not hard to explain how a heart grows

 Student of the Month

Dominique Velazquez was selected as student of the month for academic excellence.  

This young lady leaves a certain teacher in awe and wonder at how a person, only in their late teens, can be responsible for so much with work and family and still be so successful in school. Furthermore, with all the responsibility this young lady has, she is able to do it with such grace that it seems she is ALWAYS in a great mood and a pleasure to be around—I think all the faculty and staff at the school would agree. Her grade in English class is a solid A, and I've rarely seen a student so THOROUGH, who comes back when she's absent, checks on what she has missed, and even checks on material we've done when she is here to make sure she understands the concepts. She's just one of the many wonderful students who fly “below the radar” at our wonderful school, but definitely one to be recognized for her academic achievement. We are happy to nominate Dominque Velazquez for Student of the Month!

Congratulations, Dominique!
