Mrs. Murphy’s Weekly Updates: Here
The DEIB office is going to be putting out a word of the month. This month’s word is: respect. It is a way to kick off anti-bullying month. We must have a respect for the space and our standards. Last Spring we spent some time talking about the dress code, especially in a school for girls. We heard your feedback and created thoughtful standards. This year’s dress code is much different than pre-covid dress code after taking into consideration all of the feedback. Please respect this dress code; particularly the section on tops meeting bottoms and only having small or no logos on shirts. If people keep disregarding the dress code we will bring back the punishment. Also, all of us need to be wearing our masks at all times indoors. There should be no eating indoors unless it is during lunch. Lastly, everyone should be more mindful when cleaning up after lunch so that our campus stays clean.
The Senior Privilege permission forms are with me in an email I will send out. All forms must be turned in by Monday unless you have a planned absence. You are not allowed to bother people about getting their forms in. Please follow driving rules; if you are under 18 only one person is allowed in your car. Parents are allowed to check no on the form.
Bachata night at Delbarton is on October 6th, at 6pm. Their latinx night begins at 5:30pm and dance lessons will be taught by Dr. Medina and Mr. Saldoriga. Please fill out the interest form by Sunday Night. If you are unable to get transportation, let us know and we will help you figure something out.
Like college basketball's "March Madness", Math Madness is a team competition between schools around the country. Teams compete against other teams and the clock, looking to score the winning point. Games are held online weekly in the fall and the spring. A 30 minute match consists of 7 or 8 multiple choice or short answer questions. During the match, each player receives one point for each question answered correctly. Teams are scored by the totals of their top performers. The tournament will start with a practice round the week of October 3. Our matches are held at a time and day of the week that we determine. This year, we will compete on Friday afternoons during Conference at 2:30pm. Please send Ms. Iannuzzi an email if you are interested and/or have questions.
Sanjana (2022) and Shivani (2024) (sisters and goalies) were selected to represent Nations United Lacrosse - an organization that serves to grow the game of lacrosse by showcasing high-level lacrosse with a diverse roster of elite players who serve as ambassadors of the game.
