The Varsity Football team displays PASSION,  KINDNESS and TEAMWORK each Friday when they help greet the lower-school students during the morning carpool drop-off. Way to set a positive tone for the day, athletes. 

***Show some spirit!! Let’s celebrate our Girls’ Volleyball team. Their bus will be departing at 1PM on Saturday.  We are inviting students to park along the wall on Education Way remaining in their cars to cheer on our state finalists. Please plan to arrive at 12:50. 

***The Varsity Girls’ Volleyball team will be playing in the NCISAA State Championship game versus North Raleigh Christian School on Saturday, November 7th at 5 PM. We will be cheering them on from Concord. 

***Maybe you’ve seen the little groups of Upper School kids outside after school, lugging camera equipment around campus or dressed like they’re headed for Comic Con. For two months, Cannon Theater Company has been hard at work filming two one-act plays – “She Kills Monsters” by Qui Nguyen and “Club Mojito” by Richard Dressler – and we’re excited to share them with you next week! The two films will stream back to back at 8pm on Nov 12, 13, and 14. Go to for details on the stories, how to watch, and a note for families on why we’re calling these shows “PG-13.” I’ve been amazed to watch these kids adapt to brand new circumstances, venturing into the unknown in order to gain something invaluable (which is also what these plays are about.) I hope you can watch their work!

Feeling Stressed? Based on recent US Counseling Surveys, over one third of students expressed interest in learning stress management coping skills. Join Ms. Cabellos & Ms. Hoffman Monday, November 9th during Office Hours 1:00-1:30, in Foundation Hall for a Stress Management Coping Skills Workshop to learn proven strategies to decrease stress. Space is limited to 40 people, an Outlook invitation will be emailed to RSVP. 

***FLIK 2 things to know:

1. Is that we have 2 lines open to move you through the cafeteria quicker. Both lines are the same product and pre-ordered meals are where the deli normally is

2. Please show the cashier your box. We can figure out how to charge by what our servers write on the box

Any questions don’t hesitate to ask.
