Our new semester began with an all school meeting. We discussed the importance of dress code, facility cleanliness and some changes to our Wellness program. I encourage you to speak to your daughters to learn more, as their investment in our culture is what allows us to provide them with the best possible experience.
As girls get back into the swing of things, we are reminding them about the importance of sleep and healthy habits. Today is a community day here which means the focus is on our community. At long last, we will hold a ceremony which reveals the five House names. I am excited to relay them to you next week!
Our students are accepted to college! So far the acceptances are: Colorado State Fort Collins, Columbia College, Champlain College, Merrimack College, and Montserrat College of Art. Several thousand dollars of merit scholarships have also been awarded. We are so happy and proud for our students!
Clubs and Activities
Winter sports resumed practices this week. As did choir, band, a cappella and drama. Mr. Crowley is busily preparing our students to participate in the 2017 DramaFest this March. We will keep you abreast of all pertinent dates.
We have two activities that are coming up that will be fun. On January 12, we have been invited to Metro Rock in Newburyport for some indoor rock climbing by St. John’s Prep Outdoor Club. The cost is $24 which includes rentals and pizza. Interested students should see Ms. Reardon.
On January 13th the students of St. John’s Prep will host APH students for a game night. They will provide pizza, salad and ice cream too. There is no cost. It will be held from 6:30-9:00 and students are responsible for their own transportation. Students interested should see Ms. Calzini. It sounds like it will be fun!
