WE PUT OUR BEST FOOT FORWARD - In everything that we do. We are competing on a global scale, for limited resources and a future with fewer and fewer jobs. We know, that in this economy failure equates to lost opportunities. We put our best foot forward, accepting no excuses and keeping our eyes on victory in academia and in our pursuit of life, liberty and happiness. We enjoy reading the WSJ, NY Times, NY Daily News, Crains New York and Bloomberg News so we are well informed. We are young and know that reading, and learning will pay off for us as long as we are focused.

Classroom Culture - Leadership for the 21st Century
WE TREAT EACHOTHER WITH RESPECT - We know that words hurt and that fists leave bruises. We are not statistics and we keep our hands, feet and objects to ourselves. We don't settle for less and we don't leave each other behind. We use kind words to pick our team up, we help each other with our studies. We don't lie, steal, cheat or break the law. We are citizens of our community, schools and nation. We are leaders and our goal is championship. Through hard work, we know we will achieve.
WE REPRESENT BROOKLYN AND NYC - We are from the County of Kings ok? The finest Borough and the greatest city in the world. We are the best and brightest, we are the future. We work hard in school and we play hard too. We come from a legacy of band programs in Brooklyn which have been known to be the best in the world. We represent for the many bands who have come, gone, stayed, rebranded, rebuilt and those who have still yet to be built. Most importantly, we represent JSMLI - The Brooklyn Music & Leadership Institute! Don't forget to donate, we still need to provide service and need equipment.
