The 8th graders have been working on their Mini PPP and would appreciate if you could donate old clothes and/or plastic bags that you won’t be needing anymore. Please put them in the box in the center foyer that says ‘Mini PPP Donation’ Thank you.
MYP/DP students – if you would like to take part in a Student-Led American Football Activity please email me. This will be led by a G10 student and take place on Tuesdays after school – starting Jan 14th after CNY.
This Thursday lunchtime in Mr Battye’s room, the first competition of 2017… 📝Inter-House Spelling!👨🏫
Get your teams together. From each house:
- 2 girls and 2 boys in G6-8👩🎓
- 2 girls and 2 boys in G9-12👨🎓
Teams work in pairs and can be mixed. 20 seconds to spell each word, a point for each correct answer.
The scores are incredibly close, could this be the competition that gives your house the lead they’ll carry through to the end of the year? Even if you aren’t spelling, come along and (quietly) cheer your team to victory!

Hello Middle and Upper School Rockstars.
This morning (like right now!) you will remain in Advisory for an extra 10 minutes for the purpose of helping us proofread your Semester One report. Please take a look at that time through Veracross. If there are any errors, please e-mail that teacher directly and cc Dr. Saavedra (Grades 10-12) or Mr. Bratton (Grades 6-9).
A reminder that this IS NOT a time to beg, plead, and/or harass your amazing teachers about changing your marks in any way, shape, or form. No, there is no extra credit. No, your teacher is not going to bump up your mark “just one point” due to your amazing begging skills. #gradegrubbingisnotcool.
Also, if the bell goes at 8:10am, please ignore it today. You should remain in Advisory until 8:20am.
Why should every organization hire a chef? What is ‘truth’? How can you awaken the child within?
