September Highlights

Our Bluejackets Living and Modeling the Bluejacket Way: Honesty, Respect, Responsibility, Self-Discipline and Compassion

For many years at Cambridge-Isanti High School, our student fans and participants, have taken a knee (to show respect and compassion for an injured person) when there are injuries at events. There have been numerous times this school year, that our students in the stands, and participants playing in the contest, have taken a knee to show concern for the injured. We are very proud of our students showing genuine compassion and classy Bluejacket behavior!

Each and every day our Bluejacket advisors, coaches, and directors teach life lessons. One of those life lessons is to show respect for our United States flag, and for those who have served our country. In the past few weeks, I have witnessed teams practicing across our campus during the playing of the national anthem at George Larson Field (practices have stopped, coaches and students stood at attention, and showed great respect for our flag.) Well done Bluejackets!

For many years we have honored individuals that have served our country in the military. At home varsity football games, we honor a veteran by having them and family members raise the flag during the playing of our national anthem. We sincerely thank them for their service.
