Bruin Bash

South celebrated the end of the school year with the schoolwide festival, the Bruin Bash which featured an art show; a health science open house featuring an Anatomage Table, CPR mannequins, and choking vests; and a Cruz-In auto show featuring student vehicles, police vehicles, military vehicles, and industrial equipment. Students participated in activities such as a sidewalk chalk festival, badminton tournament, karaoke, board games, rock painting, spike ball, cornhole, and a teacher dunk tank. The day concluded with a students vs. staff dodgeball game.


South's senior class celebrated academic achievements, revisited the origins of their educational journeys, enjoyed their time together as high schoolers for one of the final times, and offered support to the next generation of Bruins as part of their Senior P.R.A.N.K. (People Really Appreciation Nice Kids) Day on Tuesday. The seniors attended a scholarship ceremony, volunteered at events at South feeder elementary schools, enjoyed a barbecue lunch, and joined together for a bonding activity.
