The 5th and 6th grade flag football teams began the year with the goals of playing with pride, displaying sportsmanship, developing character, and establishing a solid foundation that will define our culture for years to come. The Lions had a hot start, defeating Trinity, Country Day and Hynes then dropped a few games before finishing on a high note by beating HNJ. Our teams head into the NOAL playoffs with great confidence and momentum as they look to work together at the peak of the season. Go Lions!

Second grade parent Jaita Talukdar shared the history and traditions of Diwali with Ms. Staes and her students. The children made rangolis out of coffee filters and painted real terracotta diyas. Rangolis are displayed at the entrances of homes to welcome family and friends. The lights from the diyas are reminders of light over darkness.
We are so proud of our National Merit Semifinalists! Congrats to Atticus Stricklin, Jack Li, Nathaniel Tuttle, William Xi, Elizabeth Francis, Richard Exnicios and Eva Kusiatin. #nationalmeritsemifinalists #smartsandarts
