School Notes for Week of January 18-22

  • Varsity Quick Recall Team is UNDEFEATED for the second year in a row!   The Varsity Quick Recall team is now 21-0 over the past two seasons in the Jefferson Count Non-Public Schools League (30-1 over the past three season), with three straight league tournament championships.  (It is also worth noting that we are the smallest school in the league!)    Congratulations to Sam Borden, Madison Ebel, Sam Edwards-Kuhn, Rose Gilbert, Zoe Koss, Lucy Lv, Jack Baize, and Mariana Wilson on an outstanding season!   Kudos also to the JV team, who with a roster of all freshmen save one sophomore finished the season 7-4.  
  • Host family needed for Chinese student for one week: January 23-31. Thanks to all who have offered to host Chinese students for the last week in January. There is still a need to house Zhenyu Hang, a 15-year-old 10th grader whose favorite subject is English, but who is also allergic to dogs and cats. We are hoping to find a 7th or 8th grade family who might take her in for the week and help get her to the Downtown Campus Monday through Friday and bring her home (although arrangements can be worked out). A $200 stipend is offered to defray expenses. Please contact Chinese teacher Bob Jones as soon as possible for more information.   
  • On Thursday, February 9th at 7:30 p.m., KCD will host Dan Harris, an anchor at ABC News. His book 10% Dan Harris LectureHappier recounts how he came to realize the power of meditation and the importance of finding time to reflect. It is a very powerful message. Dan had a panic attack on the air (available on YouTube) and from there he realized that he was slowly killing himself. Dan is an accomplished speaker with great rapport, humor, and a very important message. This event is not ticketed; it is free and open to the public.  Organizers anticipate a big crowd, so please come early to ensure getting a seat.
