Semester in review

By Isabella Taffera, Kassidy McCall, Sarah Moncure

The first semester of the 2015-2016 school year, for many, will be

memorable. For the first time, freshmen were tossed into the lion’s den

some may call high school, while the rest of us reveled in the joy of being

an upperclassman. Not only did we welcome freshman to high school life,

but we also got to experience countless fun school activities including

homecoming and its spirit week, exciting football games, and the infamous

Student Expression Night.

The few days leading up to homecoming night were filled with eccentric

outfits and plenty of spirited students. The electrifying days we all know as

Spirit Week, will be remembered for the exciting, pulsing energy throughout

the school. The highly anticipated homecoming night was cleverly themed:

“Under the Big Top.” For many, the fun-filled evening was filled with dancing,

playing games, and hanging out with friends.

Along with homecoming, Friday night football games were a highlight for

many BP students this fall. Head Varsity coach, Tommy Buzzo, was admirably

awarded “Coach of the Year” by The Freelance-Star. He felt honored and appreciated receiving it.

Adding to the many 2015 Brooke Point accomplishments, the drama department opened the year with their

commendable performance of “The Laramie Project”. Freshman Katie Monaghan, said, “It was powerful and inspiring.”

The student body basked in Brooke Point’s newly remodeled library at the start of the 2015-2016 school year. In the

cherished moments before the start of school, students utilize the highly equipped facility to its maximum. On the exterior

walls of the library, students and staff can walk by and be reminded of our shining new school motto: “Be Proud”.

Despite the many exciting events of 2015, Brooke Point was sad to see Cathy Van Valzah, a social studies teacher whose

career started at the opening of this school, retire from her impactful position as a member of the staff. Scott McClellan said,

“She brings a lot of experience, a lot of wisdom that we’re gonna miss.”
