Gryphons, think for a minute about just how powerful the brain is. Brain power is what is responsible for all of the inventions and creative concepts that keep us happy, safe and alive. Let us practice using our thoughts and imagination for good and powerful and purposeful living. When we focus on good, we do good for others in our environment. When we take time to think good, do good, be good…goodness is returned to us…often abundantly. As always Gryphons, let us be intentional and use our brains as a source of good. Let us practice thinking about thinking and take actions—on purpose—that reveal just how powerful our brains can be!

Attention all middle and high school boys of color. YMA and Jr. YMA will be having their first interest meeting for all returning members and new initiates on Wednesday from 4pm-5:30pm. Young Male Achievers (YMA) is a nationally recognized school- and community-based movement for “at risk” minorities. These young men have chosen to be neither a statistic nor a stereotype, but have chosen to be outstanding leaders by having a positive and productive mindset in their home, school, and community. These young men take youth empowerment and social change seriously. The four tenets that all YMA members abide by are leadership, mentorship, service to the community, and education. If you have any questions please contact Coach Barnes, Mr. Marshall or Mr. Lewis.
