“Developing a global vision through student empowerment.” When staff and students walked onto the EAB campus at the end of last week they were welcomed with a sign featuring those words underscoring the Brasilia Model United Nations conference name and logo in the familiar UN blue.

“No foul, no foul!”, screamed the Trojans’ coach from the opposite side of the pitch. He yelled even louder the third time around, but to no effect. The whistle was blown and the foul kick was awarded to the Bulls. Number 10 gently put the ball in place. He had already proven time and time again his free-kick capability. The whistle blew again, but this time it resounded as clear and certain as the sunrise, as the ball sliced into the back of the net and the crowd roared, as if they knew the final result before it even happened!

Finally. It has arrived. Twelfth grade. The culmination of over a decade’s worth of education, and we are in the thick of it. For EAB students, as with students all over the world, it is a time of important decisions. Approaching these decisions takes a lot of effort and research on the part of students and parents to come to a successful conclusion. At EAB, we see this as a process that students are in charge of with the support of their families, counselors, teachers and school administrators. So, while this article is mainly for students, parents will find it useful, as well.

It amazes me to see how much our LS students have accomplished during this semester in Music. They have most definitely embraced the Music curriculum and developed their musicianship skills further, thanks to their great effort, hard work and commitment to their lessons. Soon it will be time to celebrate and perform their successes. Performance is a key and fundamental component of the National Core Arts Standards.

Not a week goes by when I don't hear a concern from a parent about student use of alcohol and the parties that happen at private homes many weekends. Though all evidence is anecdotal, the basic story from party to party is the same: excessive student drinking in an unsupervised setting, students passing out, engaging in various types of risky behavior, and in the worst situations students being taken to the hospital due to alcohol poisoning. Though most of the parties are at the homes of high school students, middle school students attend with some frequency and we have many examples, once again all anecdotal, of MS students being excessively drunk. Marijuana use is apparently also prevalent.

With EAB in the online news last weekend, it seems timely to write to you about the actual bathroom designations at the school and our commitment to abiding by relevant legislation and best safety practices. We met with our school attorney this week to revisit EAB's approach to this issue relative to the local law. Reviewing our campus locations of "student only" bathrooms and "adult only" bathrooms, he confirmed that EAB obeys all legislation in this domain including article 14 of the 1999 district decree 20.769, which addresses early childhood students (ages 3-6).
