Naviance night introduces new program

BY LAUREN PABIAN

An Interactive Naviance Informational Night was held on Oct. 20 in The Wave for students and parents; the event provided information about the new program. Broward Advisors For Continuing Education (BRACE) Adviser Shari Bush and the Promote Relationships in Diversity through Education (PRIDE) officers led the parents through a tutorial of the Naviance application.

The Naviance program was recently introduced to Broward County, and Assistant Principal Kassandra Fried has been pushing for the county to initiate it.

“Though Naviance may be expensive, its usefulness outweighs the price,” Mrs. Fried said. “Students will be able to explore and discover college and career interests as well as search up schools all in the same place.”

Mrs. Fried said this program will have a huge positive impact on the students of our school and the county.

“The students will end up using Naviance way more than they expect, and the program tailors to each student’s specific needs and helps build their college profile,” Mrs. Fried said.

SGA officer training helps new officers learn the ropes

In order to teach club officers about their leadership positions, the Inter-Organizational Council (IOC) hosted an officer-training workshop on Oct. 13 in the auditorium and classrooms in the 100s building. More than 150 officers from 52 clubs attended the workshop.  All officers were welcome, but treasurers of each club were required to attend.

“[The training] basically taught [officers] how to do their job better and easier with less mistakes,” senior and Student Government Association (SGA) 1st Vice President Daniela Hernandez said.  “In SGA, we are taught by the previous officers, and I don’t think other officers get a chance to do that, so we are the teachers for them.”

Club officers were divided into three groups and rotated at three workshops.  These workshops were Communication & Project Planning, Officer Team Dynamics and Time Management & Member Motivation.

“I thought the workshops were extremely helpful,” junior and President of Debbie’s Dream Daniela Schwartz said.  “I learned a lot of great tips from SGA officers on how to communicate better with the officers and club members. The training also provided great tips on how to plan events using time management and organization.”

Homecoming week stimulates school spirit

BY CARLI UDINE

NEWS EDITOR

In preparation for Homecoming Week, beginning on Oct. 24 and lasting until the Homecoming Dance that will take place on Oct. 29 at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort in Fort Lauderdale, students at the Bay have been working on ways to get ready for the festivities as well as the annual Homecoming Dance.

Sophomore Lauren Nau, member of the Student Government Association (SGA) and chair of the spirit days for homecoming, said the time leading up to the dance is one of the most stressful weeks of the school year.

“My committee, along with all members of SGA, has been working non-stop to come up with ideas to bring excitement and spirit to the school,” Nau said. “It is all worth it in the end to see all our hard work in action and to see students getting spirited and having a good time.”

With the spirit days revolving around television shows, Nau said SGA wanted to incorporate the opinions of the students for the theme.

PRIDE hosts Health Fair to give back to community

NEWS PHOTO EDITOR

Promoting Relations in Diversity through Education (PRIDE) hosted its annual Health Fair on Oct. 1 in the Wave.  The event was open to all students and parents as well as others in the community who wanted to attend.

“We think it’s very good for the community, and PRIDE loves helping the community,” senior and club President Michelle Nguyen said.  “The Health Fair is a great event because learning about health is very important.”

Health professionals offered free screenings and tests such as vision tests, glucose tests, hearing tests and skin cancer screenings.  Additionally, guest speakers at booths placed around the Wave informed participants about various health topics.

“I came to the Health Fair mostly because I wanted to check on my vision and my glucose,” freshman Alissa Castro said.  “I learned a lot, and it felt like a good place to get checked out and learn about health.”

Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) helped PRIDE organize the health fair and contact the health professionals and guest speakers. HOSA members also volunteered at the event.

As students entered the Bay on Aug. 22 for the new school year, a handful of new faculty members did also. American History teacher Jeffrey Buttell, chemistry teacher Elefteria Halivelakis and Guidance Counselor Shawn McCartan were all a part of the new staff.

Mr. Buttell, a returning Cypress Bay teacher who started teaching in 2007, was transferred to West Broward High School in 2008. After a few years of teaching there, Mr. Buttell was brought back to the Bay.

“My goal was to eventually return back to the school where I started my teacher career in Florida,” Mr. Buttell said.

Mr. Buttell has also taught in Northern California and in Sao Paulo Brazil.
