Isabella Cosmello enlisted her basketball teammates to help her raise a total of $1,176 on the way to accumulating 1,000 points during her 4-year basketball career at Blue Ridge and the best girls’ basketball season in years. $600 of that was donated to a variety of causes in the Blue Ridge communities. The rest of it, $576, was given to the Blue Ridge district to support the Leo Club, the lifeskills program, and the nurse’s office. Ms. Cosmello presented the oversize check to start off the School Board’s July meeting on the 17th, titling her generosity “1,000 Ways to Give Back.”
Superintendent Dr. Jessica Aquilina introduced the 2017-2018-school calendar, noting the students first day of school will be September 19th. Due to construction the students would not be able to occupy the building before the proposed date, she stated during the school board meeting held on July 17th. Superintendent Aquilina when questioned stated if the school does not use the ten snow days, graduation will be held on June 8th; if ten snow days are used the proposed graduation date will be June 22nd. Teachers will be starting on September 12th in preparation of the students starting on the 19th. The calendar is available to view on the schools website.
