GRADUATION CAP AND GOWN ORDERS FOR SENIORS Seniors, the first opportunity for you to place your order for your cap and gown will be Wednesday and Thursday, August 29 and 30th at the table set up in the HGH Arcade.  You will simply complete a form to include your height and weight.  There is no fee for the cap and gown as it is included in your tuition.  If you would like to place other graduation item orders (announcements, etc.), you may do so at this time also.  Juniors and Seniors can place their ring orders on these dates as well.  Additional orders of announcements, rings, etc., require a $75 deposit if you are not paying in full.  Please stop by Ms. Dennard’s office for a flyer with this information if you did not get one at orientation and for any questions.

SENIOR PICTURES FOR THE YEARBOOK – Seniors, this year Prestige Portraits by Lifetouch will set up their studio right here on campus in HGH, September 25th and 26th.  Prestige will send out communications to your home in early September with instructions on how to schedule your appointment, attire and ordering.  Please see Ms. Dennard if questions.

SO YOU WANNA JOIN A CLUB?  The 2018-2019 Club Registration form was shared with all members of the faculty by Mr. Oldani, so if you’re a returning leader/member of a club from last year, you should contact your moderator to make sure the club gets registered.  If you’re looking to join a club, the 2018-2019 Activities Expo will be held on September 11th and 13th, HGH. The Expo is an opportunity for all registered clubs to showcase what they do and for students to get more information about the details of the clubs they’re interested in. Club Moderators can begin signing up for Expo Slots immediately as they all of the link to that as well.  If you’re wanting to start a new club, there are a few things to consider…

  1. Why does Brophy need this club? Here’s the clubs that were available last year.
  2. What is the current demand for this club? You and 4 buddies that like something is not enough for a club. What else have you done to determine if this is something that will exist beyond this year? is it something that can exist in 5 years?
  3. How will the club foster greater connections between students? How will you grow the club, not just in numbers, but in community impact?
  4. Do you have a moderator who will share in the responsibilities of growing the club with you?

This year, there are 7 available KBI trips (one is a full weekend-long trip).

Please fill out this Google Form if you are interested in attending a KBI trip. You can fill out multiple dates.

If you have any questions, please visit the Office of Faith and Justice.

The Frosh Retreat (Saturday, August 25) is MANDATORY FOR ALL FRESHMEN!

Youth and Government: Take over the ARIZONA STATE CAPITOL for a weekend! If you’re interested in public policy or politics, come to Wednesday meetings at lunch in Mr. Molander’s room, D203—that’s Dutch 203, to learn more about how you can simulate state government, lobbyists, and the press with unfettered access to the state capitol complex. All grade levels are welcome.

You will need your AZ driver’s license or state ID and your social security number.

A couple of tips to keep in mind:

1) Picking a political party: Independent is ‘No Party Preference’. Independents cannot vote in the Presidential primaries, but can vote in all other primaries.

2) Don’t put in your email or phone number or you will get a bunch of fundraising calls and spam during election.

3) You should sign up for the “Permanent Early Voter” list. This means they will mail you ballots for every election (large or small) and you can mail them in. Voting by mail means you don’t have to deal with long lines, ID laws, or pollsters harassing you at the polling place.
