A++ for Ambassadors

Student Author: Penelope North '21
 

Here are some of our 8th grade and Upper School Ambassadors helping prepare for Admission Preview, where all prospective parents and families came to visit our campus. We came to work hand in hand with parents and students, answering questions about various subjects and student life and touring them around our campus.

Microlending Program

Student Author: Sameer Bhasin '20
 

Every Friday morning, the World Affairs Club meets to discuss current events, the model UN program, and our Microlending program. Microlending is an economic program that allows people across the world to loan money to those in need with a minimal interest rate and help them achieve their goal while being fully paid back over a short amount of time. This past Friday, the World Affairs Club was able to help a family in Vietnam fix their house, a group in Cambodia to buy a clean water filter, a farmer in Peru buy the animals needed to support her farm, a Palestinian refugee and mother of five the necessary capital to buy raw materials for her business, and a woman in Tajikistan the money needed to pay her full tuition for medical school.

Family (History) Fun Comes to an End

Student Author: Abby Brand '20
 

History and English projects are coming to a close! After writing a research paper on our family history and an argumentative essay about a way it relates to the 21st century, juniors wrapped up the projects with presentations. Each student gave a 2-3 minute speech on their process, research, and personal artifact. It was nerve-racking, but everyone did very well! Pictured here is one of my friends  practicing her speech for us before school to make sure she was ready!

Brain Training

Today, the AP Psychology classes went to the Center for Brain Health at the University of Texas at Dallas. We learned a lot of interesting facts about the brain in general and also learned a lot of useful information about how it works and the best way to use our brains.

Strong Sense of Community

Faculty Author: Mr. Eason, Director of Outdoor Education
 

I came across this gem while preparing slides for our third Hallmark session 'Strong Sense of Community'. This image is from Page 1 in Carillon, our first senior yearbook in 1980. This picture is a testament to our school being founded on the hallmark of being an inclusive and welcoming community.
