The National Latin Exam results are in and we are so proud of how our students performed! Five 7th-9th grade students (Jesse Hampton, Luke Wilmington, Maiya Stohlmann, Chase Stohlmann, Nathaniel McClaflin) received awards (including two medal winners, Maiya and Luke). Six of our 6th grade students (Angela Allen, Eliana Wickland, Brady Terry, Tjabe Koenen, Maggie Hornung, Joshua Woodberry) earned awards from the Junior Classical League. Congratulations to these students, and special thanks to their Latin teachers, Mrs. Elizabeth Wickland and Mr. Thomas Banks.
Our 7th-12th grade students enjoyed “An Evening at the Drive-In” this past Saturday night, when we converted our Performance Hall into a drive-in movie theater for a double feature of two classic films: “His Girl Friday,” starring Cary Grant, and Alfred Hitchcock’s mystery, “The Lady Vanishes”. Most grades had dinner together at a classmate’s home beforehand (thanks to those parents who hosted) and enjoyed dressing up for a fun night out.
Our next all-Secondary event (the second of two “Spring It On!” events) will take place Friday, May 4, at 7:30 p.m. when all 7th-12th grade students are invited to our second annual bonfire next to our sports field before our Petra Ultimate Frisbee tournament on Saturday. Please contact events coordinator Eli Denison with questions.

“As I think about the futures of my kids, they’re getting old enough that I’m starting to worry about their work-life balance. Do I have enough time with them at home? Are they doing too much homework? To help answer these questions, I decided to observe Mr. Koenen’s 11th grade Humanities class last week.” Read Jim’s observations in his guest post, “Knowing a Tree by Its Fruit,” in our Scholar’s Forum.
