Student Weekly Announcements


Announcements for the week of September 11th

Doors between the buildings will now be locked during class time.  You will be shown a video during 2nd period today on how the process will work.  Also remember the schedule will shift starting today to include Gator Time after 6th period.  

September 11, 2001, marks a significant moment in history when a tragic event unfolded in the United States.  On that day, individuals committed acts that had far reaching consequences.  It is crucial to remember this day, not to dwell on fear, but to reflect on the values of courage, unity, and compassion. Many heroes, like firefighters and police officers, showed incredible bravery while helping those in need.  This event serves as a reminder that, together, we can strive to make the world a better and more secure place by promoting understanding and empathy among all people.

Friday evening at sundown marks the beginning of Rosh Hashanah. Rosh Hashanah commemorates the creation of the world and marks the beginning of the Days of Awe, a 10-day period of introspection and repentance that culminates in the Yom Kippur holiday, also known as the Day of Atonement. Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are the two “High Holy Days” in the Jewish religion. Many Jewish Americans observe Rosh Hashanah, known as the New Year in the Jewish calendar, for two days, while others celebrate the event for one day. It is a time of family gatherings, special meals and sweet foods. Many Jewish people celebrate Rosh Hashana by eating challah bread and apples dipped in honey.

Destination Imagination
Are you looking for an after-school activity that allows you to design, build, write and act in a creative environment? If so, you should consider joining Destination Imagination. Destination Imagination is a creative problem solving competition where teams of up to 7 members solve long-term challenges in one of six categories such as engineering, fine arts, scientific, or improvisational acting.
