Students for Constitutional Government will be meeting in Foundation Hall on Thursday, May 2nd during lunch. The topic will be federalism.



There is a schedule change for the College Counseling session regarding teacher letters of recommendation. The original meeting date was during drop periods TOADY, April 30th (this is in your planner). We are changing the day/time of this meeting: it will now be during Student Life on May 9th.  So there is NOT a mandatory drop with College Counseling this Tuesday. Information reiterating the date change and locations was sent in an email to all juniors. We look forward to seeing you all on May 9th.

Thank you – The CC Team

The Lower School is going to be celebrating OLYMPIC DAY next Friday, May 3rd.  Like every year, Coach Killam is looking for about 8 upper school volunteers to help out with serving food at the picnic.  The times would be 11:00-12:15.  They would receive service hours if they volunteer.
