Hey Seniors! In the equation 40 + X = Superlatives in the yearbook, 40 stands for the dedicated seniors who already filled out the superlatives form emailed to their stjlabs email account, X equals 60, the minimum number of seniors who will need to complete the form by Tuesday at 3pm to ensure the superlatives appear in the 2024 yearbook. Be sure to fill out the form today!


On Thursday, March 7, the Academy will be hosting a Zoom workshop during C block with a composer and a poet who have joined together to create poetry & music celebrating the influence of African American culture.  They will be working with students to create/compose/or just learn more about how the two combined their talents, which will lead up to their concert “We’re All in This Together” at the South Church. For more information, please stop by the Headmaster’s Office, or see Ms. Hibbert in Ranger or Mr. MacKenzie in the Learning Center. 


Congratulations to Addie Jensen for winning the local Rotary Speech Contest on Friday afternoon. Addie will compete in the next round this afternoon.  Best of luck, Addie!


Huge shout out from Athletics to the volunteers & Facilities team, who made it possible for us to host the Vermont State Gymnastics meet this weekend. And special thanks to Chef Hale and his Avengers! — the Waterman, Barn, and Brantview boys who led all the dorm troops in helping us break down all the equipment and load the truck on Sunday evening.


This weekend, the gymnastics team hit their highest team score of the season with a 132.675. Siri Jolliffe ended her first and last season of high school placing 6th on floor and 11th all-round.  Lydia Ruggles is officially the #1 high school gymnast in the state! Her first-place finishes on uneven bars, beam, floor, and her third place finish on vault earned her top honors all around with a huge 1st place score of 37.850. In addition, the floor officials gave “Judges Choice Artistry Award” for choreography and expression to both Lydia and Siri for their very different yet well put together routines. Along with the scores of Lydia and Siri, the team’s score was supported by Katy Noonan, Zoë Glentz Brush, and Ailee Stratton. Katy had one of her best meets with her highest score on floor and a solid vault, Zoë competed a lovely beam routine and got a nod from the judges, and Ailee’s competitive spirit all helped up the team score by 10 points and propelled the team into 3rd place. 


The Bowling team had another successful match on Saturday. Taking the 2nd-seed into match play, the team beat South Burlington two-games to none, posting a team-best, 216, in the first game. In the final, the team fell to Essex, 2-1, in a close and exciting matchup. The strong performance means the team will go into States with the 4th seed. Go Hilltopper Bowlers! 


Happy Birthday today to Kanan Gasimov!
