Homecoming 2017 “Brimmy’s”

Hello students, families, staff and alumni! We’ve had a great year so far and can hardly 2017 is almost over. Right before Thanksgiving break, the Class of 2018 put on a spectacular homecoming show, The “Brimmy’s” and crowned their king and queen. Then, this week, the Red Cross Club hosted a blood drive. 28 students were able to donate blood which went on to help 84 patients. As Nurse Calderone said, “This season, you gave the best gift of all!” You can read about these events and more in our November/ December issue of BrimmNews! – The Lion’s Den here. From everyone at Brimm Medical Arts High School, happy holidays and many blessings for 2018!

US History II – Quarterly Update 2016-2017

Teaching juniors at my school is bittersweet. Some of my students have been students of mine since 9th grade and now, they are juniors! It is humbling to watch them grow over the years and it is one of the reasons I enjoy teaching juniors. The year began with studying the Reconstruction Era, possibly one of the hardest units I teach.  That didn’t stop my students from having deep conversations about how the events of this time period still affect us today. They are able to connect so much to the world we live in today. The next unit focused on The Rise of Big Business and the Progressive Era. Students researched a modern business of their choice and created presentations. I am proud of their creativity and how they showcase their knowledge.  We briefly over viewed World War I, and will come back to study it more in depth before studying the Jazz Age and the Great Depression in marking period 2. We closed out the marking period with the election. You’ll find that post here.
