Good morning, Hilltoppers! To support the Agency on Aging in making sure that our elderly community members feel connected and loved this Valentine’s Day, we want to remind you that we have valentines supplies available to you! Many advisors can give you supplies during your advisory block today or if you have some free time in the library, see the staff at the main desk, and they’ll set you up. If you’re in a dorm, ask your proctors for some supplies and have a valentine-making party this weekend. Or how about if you finish your homework early, ask your study hall proctor for some supplies next week. All valentines must be completed no later than next Friday. Stay tuned for more announcements and info. Thanks for your help and support in brightening many people’s Valentine’s Day!
Happy Birthday on Sunday to Kayla Sline and Avah Ward!
On Wednesday at the Craftsbury Outdoor Center, the Academy girls Nordic team raced to second place overall, beating perennial Nordic powerhouses CVU and Mount Mansfield.

Siri Jolliffe finished in 14th place overall, and Ava Purdy and Mary Fowler completed the scoring for the Hilltoppers, who collectively finished a mere 8 seconds behind the 1st place U-32 team. Ninth grader Anya Moriarty continued to impress in her third race as a member of the varsity squad.
The Boys too had a successful outing, with Sisu Lange and Charles Krebs finishing in 5th and 10th place respectively. Nathan Lenzini and Nick Reed finished the scoring for the boys, followed by Krane Davis and ninth grader Isaac Lenzini.
