The Band of Pirates This past Saturday the Band of Pirates traveled to the Oakleaf High School Knights Cup in Orange Park, Florida. The Band place 2nd out of 8 bands in attendance! They captured the Most Outstanding Color Guard Award and had the highest musical performance of any band that evening. The bands are judged on their musical performance, both individually and as an ensemble, the visual effect of the formations and on their percussion and color guard sections. It is a great accomplishment for our students! We are working hard to improve and complete the show for our Florida Bandmasters Marching Musical Performance for the beginning of next month.

UCF student shares story that ‘It Gets Better’
Orlando — posted by halboedeker on October, 8 2012 4:25 PM Hunter Fromm, a student at the University of Central Florida, is featured in 'It Gets Better.' Hunter Fromm, 18, says taking part in the special “It Gets Better” helped improve relations with his dad. “It’s kind of easier to talk about things today,” Fromm says. “It was a big breakthrough for us. I think the show opened up communication. It broke a wall.”

News from Nahirny Mike and I would like to thank the MHS faculty and staff for the many cards, letters, e-mails, gifts and gift cards you have sent us over the past few weeks while I have been undergoing the first portion of my cancer treatment. Your many kindnesses, your generosity and your prayers have made this whole ordeal so much more bearable for us. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. So far, I have completed 26 of the 42 twice-daily radiation treatments. The oncologist told me on Thursday that the dosage has increased to the highest exposure I will get, and that if I hadn't had any really serious side effects, that things weren't going to get much worse, so that is something to be happy about. Thus far, I have been able to deal with the side effects fairly well,. I consider myself very blessed in that regard. I should finish up the treatments in mid-to-late October, just in time for my husband and I to observe our 24th anniversary on October 22, and my big 5-0 birthday on October 29. I don't think I'll be forgetting my 50th birthday "experience" anytime soon. I don't know many people who "celebrate" their 50th birthday the way I will. Mike is hoping to come back to work on/about October 22 while I am at home recovering from the treatments. He hopes to be able to work for about a month before he has to bring me back up to Shands for the surgery in mid-November. Please keep those emails and greetings coming. You have no idea how inspiring even a brief note is, and how your prayers and good wishes serve to lift my spirits while I am away from all the people, places, things and activities I love so much. Jo Ann & Mike Nahirny
