Attention writers and artists! It’s time to start thinking about your submissions for the Clear River Review, the Academy’s journal for literature and the arts! You may submit your poems, essays, and stories, as well as your black-and-white visual artwork, including Intaglio prints and photographs, between now and February 1. The submission form is available at http://bit.ly/clearriver. You may also contact Mrs. Mackenzie or Ms. Drew for more information by inquiring at clear.river@stjlabs.com.

 

Please return any overdue books to the library this week! Like every December, we ask that you bring back (or renew) the overdues if you want to check out new books for Winter Break! It helps the library keep track of what is actually lost vs. the dusty gems at the bottom of your bag waiting patiently to be read and (hopefully) adored. If you want to renew something, please email library@stjlabs.com with the titles that you wish to keep until after break. Thanks so much!

 

Do you care about politics in the United States? Are you passionate about the challenges facing the United States? Do you enjoy writing about issues that are important to you? If you answer yes to one or all three of these questions, then you should enter the 11th annual State of the Union Essay contest. All you need to do is write a 250-500 word essay on an issue that faces the United States. Academy students have fared well in this essay contest and have had a finalist for the past five years. If you win you could meet Senator Sanders and have your essay entered into the Congressional Record (the archive of the US Congress). The essay is due January 11th, 2021. Please see Mr. Eckhardt or any member of the Social Studies Department for more information.

 

To start the week off right – here is a joke from Mr. Camelio: Yesterday I began my online holiday shopping…I ordered a chicken and an egg from Amazon Prime…I’ll let you know which one comes first. 😊

 

Happy Birthday today to PK Sahawat, Camille Yarrow, Thomas Leigh, and Zander Veilleux.
