School Spirit All Around!

By Suzanne Gorman, Head of Downtown Campus

hs-fall-sports-assemblyThe Fall Sports Picnic and Bonfire last Friday were great successes – a big congratulations to our field hockey and soccer teams on strong performances! The bonfire was a wonderful event, with about two-thirds of the student body in attendance and many s’mores consumed.

The varsity soccer team managed to get some sleep, wake up early the next morning, and endure fatigue and rain to win the Whitefield Invitational, defeating both Holy Cross and Whitefield handily. The varsity field hockey team also spent their Saturday competing, in the CAL Invitational, and they represented themselves well. So proud of both teams!

I am also proud of our students’ community service efforts. My We Act group, speaking of early Saturday mornings, will be at Goshen starting at 7:30 a.m. tomorrow to prepare for the My School Color Run, which should get us very close to reaching our goal of $10,000 needed to fund the building of a school in Haiti. This past Tuesday was our second (of six) Community Service day, and groups worked hard, some even weeding and whacking in the heat.

Our Admissions Director, Trisha Amirault, is getting us ready to start welcoming 8th grade shadow visitors, starting next Friday. A whopping 28 9th graders have volunteered to be “guideverns” (guides + Wyverns = guideverns) and will be helping Trisha out with shadow days, High School Nights, Open Houses, and any/all admissions events. Can’t believe we are already gearing up for 2017-18!
