Catching Up...

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I’ve been woefully delinquent in keeping all of our blog readers current on all of the remarkable things that have been going on here over the past few weeks. With Yom Tov and our Fall Festival now behind us, I hope to begin keeping pace again.

In the meantime let me at least note that our Early Childhood trip to the Botanic Gardens,

the intellectually and rhetorically sophisticated political debate put on by out 8th graders (click on the videos below to watch clips!), as well as the one put on by our Girls High School,

the registration and voting in our elementary school mock election,

the guest speakers who debated Republican and Democratic party policy in our Boys High School,

the physics experiments in Mr. Vaughn’s class,

and the launching of the Names, Not Numbers program only scratches the surface of recent school events.

As those who participated can attest, our Fall Festival was a wonderful success. I’m still collecting pictures from the event and will post them shortly. Please keep in mind that this Wednesday evening at 7:30pm is our High School Open House. If you have an 8th grader, please be sure to be there – and to bring all of your child’s non-Academy friends along with you!
