Physics Class Builds Catapults

As part of their study of projectile motion, physics students have been building catapults; when they are finished, these will be judged in two categories: accuracy and distance.  The competition is cutthroat, but these science students are having fun AND applying skills they’ve learned in class, which makes all of them winners.

Once Upon a Time

Congratulations to Thomas Wilson and Lauren Parkinson, voted by their peers as the 2017 Prom King and Queen. This year’s theme was “Once Upon a Time,” and after the Senior Walk, students danced the night away at the Flora Gin.  Thank you to the Junior Class officers and to their parents for working so hard to make it a night to remember.

6th Graders Visit Upper School

Yesterday, current 6th-grade students took their annual tour of the Upper School, in order to feel more comfortable in their surroundings when they go “up the hill” next year to become junior high students. They attended Upper School chapel, and then were shown the administration offices, computer labs, library, the junior high hall and classes, and the band hall.  However, the highlight of the trip every year is eating break in the cafeteria, where they are allowed to purchase any food they want, including the “famous” cheese sticks.
