PICTURES AND REPORTS
WHAT TO EXPECT ON A 6TH GRADE BIKE TRIP
This video is from 2017. The endpoint for the bike trip this year has been changed to a location near the Abbey. 3-minute video.
There was an amazing band concert in our large gym on Tuesday evening 6-4-2019. Stringed instruments were featured in the first part of the concert, followed by performances with wind and percussion instruments. A wide range of music was played for the large number of family members that were present. The students and band leader performances were something for us all to be proud of. Unfortunately, only those students easily visible from the sidelines were photographed. LINK TO 137 PICTURES
FIELD DAY PICTURES
The weather was perfect for the sack races, three-legged races, and various sponge-related games on Thursday. Teams Imagination and Discovery organized and hosted the events. 6-6-2019. LINK TO 60 PICTURES
A FEW MORE TRIUMPH SYRUP TASTING PICTURES
On Stewardship Day, Triumph members made many pancakes, chopped them up into little portions and placed them into tiny paper cups. Then they took syrup they made with the help of Mr. Branon and poured some over each pancake portion. Most of the other learning communities signed up to drop by the Triumph community and try out their syrup. Taste tests were quick and generally greatly enjoyed.
A number of our students play lacrosse with the Phantoms. Often they end up moving up to the high school teams and playing at a high level. Here is a picture of four SACS athletes. They were heading off to a playoff game the evening this picture was taken. 6-6-2019. Other phantoms are welcome to submit their pictures for the announcements.
