Prom...Ethics Bowl...Bye Bye Birdie!

Here is our beautiful girls soccer team on senior day--their last home game. At today's ceremony, we honor our four seniors (Becca, Kathryn, Molly, and Katie) who have played together since Middle School. Congratulations to all of our players on a great season!

Meanwhile, it's time to get your tickets for Bye Bye Birdie. We will have an open dress rehearsal on Wednesday at 7:30pm. Performances are Thursday and Saturday at 7:30pm and Sunday at 2:30. Tickets are on sale through Willy Rotella (x-226).

Here are a few pictures from junior retreat--a very successful evening! We celebrated Frances's birthday during dinner, and enjoyed a talk about Creative Entrepreneurship from Carl Nordgren. Our juniors came up with many great ideas for coming year.The students in this bottom photo give you an excellent idea of the level of energy and enthusiasm that we shared. They are ready!

The Prom is Saturday from 9-12 at Rigsbee Hall in downtown Durham. Students should have already purchased tickets, as they are not available at the door. Once students arrive, they must stay until they are ready to leave for the night. Students will not be allowed to leave the Prom and return later. We talked with students today about having good, clean fun. All school rules apply during this school-sponsored event. No drugs or alcohol. If we expect that anyone has arrived under the influence of a substance, we will call that child's parents. We want everyone to have a great time and be safe.

Just a reminder that our annual Celebration of the Arts will be held Thursday, May 5, from 5-7. All US families are invited. We have also invited our MS riser families. We will have a potluck to share while we enjoy music from the Quaker N'Oats and school bands, and dance performances on the patio. Art work will be on display. Selected art and t-shirts will be on sale. We invite you to enjoy a full evening of entertainment by coming to the Celebration of the Arts and then head down to the Center to see Bye Bye Birdie!
