Middle School Musical “Charlie Brown”

charlie_brownOn March 17, a cast of talented Middle School students performed You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown for an audience of friends and family. The students have worked diligently since September to stage this production, which required acting, dancing, and singing. The characters featured were Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Schroeder, Sally, Peppermint Patty, Marcie, Frieda, Pig Pen, and of course, Snoopy.

Thank you to all the parents, faculty, staff, and students who contributed to the success of this year’s musical!

Basketball Team Ends Successful Season

boys_basketballOn March 7, the Middle School held a pep rally to celebrate the successful boys’ basketball season. The varsity team made it to the semifinals of the Middle School Athletic League play-offs and finished with a final record of 10 wins, 5 losses. The junior varsity team had a final record of 9 wins, 2 losses, going undefeated for the majority of the season.

During the pep rally, each player was recognized for his contribution to the team, and students bid farewell to the 8th grade players. The basketball team then processed down the school hallways where they were congratulated by Lower School students. Here’s to another successful season next year!
