What ever happened to the BEAR FACTS!

What If...#2?

What if you could assign a consequence for an infraction? What would that be?

What If.....?

What if you were the principal of Bruin Nation? What is the one thing that you would change?

What motivates Bruins?

As hard as it is to imagine, I too was a young Bruin once. And what motivated me was a pretty smile.

Homecoming Week

We have dress up days coming up! What would be some of your favorites? If you were running Student Services what days would you assign. Remember there would be only 4 days the fifth is BLACK/WHITE/GOLD!

A question....

Why is it that when we have sweeps the majority of the students make it to class? When we don't students usually are late? Do students like to have consequences? Help me out what can we do? I'd rather not threaten. OK that was like 4 questions but you get the messege.

A special Fraternity

Today we had sweeps. Most of you I'm glad to say were appropriately dressed and were on time. However, there were some who were not. And the overriding comments I heard, (other than you're tripping) were why all the new rules? and Why are we being so strict?

Let me answer it in two parts. #1 the rules aren't new. #2 It's because you deserve it.

You deserve to be in a school that cares about the way you dress and present yourself. You deserve to be in a school that cares whether you are in class learning so you can finish this 4 year road and graduate. You deserve to be in a school, that when you look around at your peers you see success.

You deserve to hold your head up high and walk down the street and say "I'm a Bruin." "I'm part of the Bruin Excellence."

You belong to a special Fraternity. This Fraternity goes back to 1972. Some of your parents and Granparents went here. Mr. K went here. I went here, (Best Class 1990)

Don't let the past, or any negative comments dictate what your High School experience will be like. People out there don't know what is going on in your school. Just because they had a bad experience in the past that's not your present. Their low expectations are not yours or ours for that matter. Prove them wrong.

If you ever listen to one of Mr. K's speeches it always has this message "You deserve the same as everyone else." And by that he means the same high expectations that Any Private, Catholic, or High achieving school has for their students.

I had it. He had it. Some of your teachers that graduated from here had it. And we are not only trying to have you have it, we are trying to raise the bar higher so one day you could tell your kids about your Fraternity. And how you would not send them anywhere else but here. Because they Deserve The Bruin Excellence.
