BROPHY’S OFFICE OF EQUITY AND INCLUSION

follow Brophy Office of Equity and Inclusion on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram, and the Brophy Black Family Alliance

As a valued partner of Rio Salado College, we have been invited to participate in a wonderful opportunity.  Dr. Christine Darden, a distinguished engineer, mathematician, data analyst, and one of the featured individuals in the book Hidden Figures, from which 2017 Academy Award-nominated movie was adapted, will visit our Rio Salado in honor of Black History Month.  Dr. Darden was one of the celebrated African American women who worked for NASA as a human computer and whose efforts led to the pre-eminence of the United States in the international space race during the 1960s.  Rio Salado and Brophy are excited about Dr. Darden’s visit and are extending a special invitation to those of you who are participating in the Dual Enrollment Program, African American students interested in STEM, or post-secondary education careers and/or students who we believe will benefit from this great experience.  The Black History Month Celebration will be held Thursday, February 14, 10:30-11:30 a.m., Rio Salado College Conference Center, 2323 W. 14th Street, Tempe, AZ 85281.  Space is limited to 250 people; therefore, we are requesting RSVPs no later than Monday, January 28, 2019. To RSVP, please respond to me at mw@brophyprep.org at your earliest convenience.  Brophy would like to have a strong showing at the event and we look forward to your participation and attendance at the Rio Salado College Black History Month Celebration.

Black by Popular Demand II – “…. Leadership is not about a title or designation. It’s about impact, influence, and inspiration.”   ~ Robin S. Sharma – Date: February 22nd, 6:00 p.m., HGH
Our Motivation – Brophy College Preparatory is committed to developing “men for others.”  Equity and inclusion are integral to this mission.  During this Black History Month, therefore, we will pause, again, by engaging and providing access to members of a new cadre of Black leaders who are answering the call for servant leadership.
Our Action – This timely program sheds light on the nexus between nine areas of Black leadership and: 1) why do these leaders do what they do; 2) why would they encourage others, particularly Black people and youth, to enter their fields; and 3) how can these interested parties leverage these vocations on behalf of personal and cultural progress? Please RSVP HERE

STUDENT ACTIVITIES

SHOUT OUT TO VARSITY SOCCER – This past weekend the Varsity Soccer team took some time away from the pitch to be with each other and give back. Saturday afternoon we went down to The Andre House as a team and served our neighbors. One of our themes this season was to be selfless on and off the field. As a team, we decided to take this time to grow and seek understanding by making a commitment to serving others.

This week the Broncos are back in action Tuesday @ Perry and the final home game Friday against Hamilton which will be senior night and a big matchup of #1 Brophy vs #2 Hamilton. Please come out and support your Broncos.

HOCKEY RESULTS: Playoffs were this past Sunday and Varsity played exceptionally against O’Connor but came up short 1-3.  Nick Thomson scored the goal and Jack Peterson and Eric Lindholm had the assist.  Thanks for a great season as we say goodbye to all our Varsity Seniors: Dawson Dewar, Joey Grams, Brendan Hoogesteger, Eric Lindholm, Nathan Mazur, Nilay Murty, Jack Peterson, Joel Tessmer, Michael Thomas, and Nick Thomson.

JV beat Mountain Ridge 3-1 in their Playoff game. Goals went to JJ Agnone, Ryan Gelinas and Peter Warner and assist went to Niccolo Raffa and Cole Cartier. They will advance to the Semi-Final game on Friday, Feb. 8th at Scottsdale Ice Den, Time is TBD. Go Broncos.

Poetry Out Loud. The first week of Poetry Out Loud begins today, Tuesday, January 29, in the Black Box Theater at lunch.

This is a presentation not too be missed!  We hope to see you all there.

HONORS and AP APPLICATIONS – Just a reminder that applications for Honors and AP courses next year are available on the Honors and AP Application website.  Again, if you’re on the fence, please apply before February 1st.  You can always choose to change your course request before final schedules are done later this spring, but if you don’t apply, there may not be room for you.

AP TESTING – If you are enrolled in one or more AP courses, you will see the College Board AP exam fees put on your family’s FACTS tuition account in the coming weeks.  All students taking AP courses are required to pay for and take the AP exam(s), which take place at Brophy May 6-May 17th.  Most AP exam fees are $94/exam, with AP Capstone (Seminar and Research) fees set at $142/exam.
