Good luck, Wildcats!

Submit Your Work to the Archives

As we wrap up the first trimester, I’d like to ask you,

What academic work are you proud of?

Please donate copies to the Archives!

Whether you’re in grade 12 or grade 7, over the past weeks you’ve produced papers, lab reports, creative writing (like Writers’ Workshop portfolios—that’s a hint, folks!), and other projects of all kinds.  It is important that we save representative examples of student work—in every subject and at every grade level—to document our history as a school.   So please help!  Paper or electronic submissions are equally welcome.

Faculty: Please encourage your students to participate, and feel free to pass on anything you think is worth preserving.

It’s your history.

Student vs. Faculty Soccer Game Postponed

Hey Wildcats!

Due to inclement weather we will postpone the Student vs. Faculty Soccer game until we return from Thanksgiving Break. We all want to play this game, and others like it. Keep the ideas coming to me and your Student Council. Your health and well-being is our priority. Study hard, take care of yourself, and have confidence on your assessments.

Illusionist David Garrity on Nov. 15

Saturday night in the Williston Theatre at 9 p.m.  illusionist David Garrity presents “Magic & Beyond.” This performance is a one-man illusion show that features unique, theatrical, and visual magic, audience participation, comedy, and a custom-edited musical soundtrack.

Mr. Garrity’s “Magic & Beyond” show has recently been seen at the Tropicana Casino in Atlantic City, NJ; Center for Performing Arts at Rhinebeck, NY; and on an international tour of exclusive, all-inclusive resorts along the Riviera Maya in Mexico.

Highlights from the “Magic & Beyond” performance may include a flashy opening called “Shades of Magic” in which the unique magic revolves around a set of sunglasses that have appeared in a flash of fire, an incredible illusion where a table mysteriously floats around the stage and into the audience, a beautiful and artistic illusion involving ordinary Hula Hoops that perform extraordinary magic, and a Houdini-style “Escape Challenge”

Mr.  Garrity uses visual magic and illusions with music, pantomime, situation comedy, and audience participation to entertain audiences of all ages and backgrounds.
