Calling all Cougars,
Student Council is doing a book drive for a school called Saint Anthony in Malaysia that former cougar Tim Gruber (Class of 2012) works for!!
How you can make a difference…
Our goal is to get each person in the upper school to donate 1 book. Just 1 book can change a child’s life. The drive starts this Wednesday March 6th and will conclude the following Friday March 15.

Hi everyone, my name is Sam McDermott. For my capstone I am going to be showing various Robin Williams films throughout the month of March. I will also be talking about Bipolar Depression before the movie and will be staying afterwards if you have any questions about it. This is purely to raise awareness, so it doesn’t cost anything. Every movie will start at 3:15 and will be shown in Mr. K’s movie room.

March 29th – Hook
April 5th – Jumanji
