Green Day


Unfortunately, the Streeter Beach area on the second floor will be closed to student use for Monday and Tuesday. Students have been bringing plates from the dining hall and leaving them, and it has been too loud, despite adequate asks and warnings. We believe that good citizens clean up after themselves and are respectful to the people around them.  


Don’t forget that Wednesday is Twin Day; Thursday is Class Theme Day; and Friday is a Green and White Variety Day!  Get your outfits ready to show your best school spirit!


Tickets for the 117th playing of the SJA/LI game are now available for purchase at the Field House front desk. Everyone is required to have a ticket to enter the game. $5 for adults, $3 for students.


Come join the Outing Club on what might be our last rock-climbing trip of the season. Enjoy some late-season foliage and test your physical limits this coming Sunday as the Outing Club heads to NH to rock out at some epic rock-climbing crag! No experience is necessary, but the spots are limited, so get your permission slips turned into the Student Life office ASAP. For details, see Mr. Holden or Mr. Weiss.  Dare to explore!


Celebrate Spirit Week with the staff in the Café! This week they will be offering the following specials: Monday — froyo cones; Tuesday — pumpkin bars and pumpkin whoopie pies; Wednesday — jumbo Hilltopper cookies; and on Thursday — brown and froyo sundaes! 


The Intro to Baking class will be selling Oreo, Raspberry Swirl, and Plain Cheesecakes after school on Thursday. The Skills USA group will be selling Stadium Nachos, cookies, soda, and Whoopie Pies after Pep Chapel on Friday.


Stop by the table in front of the library and fuel yourself up before working on the Skit, Hallway, and the Float. One bite of Cheesecake gives you enough energy to collect 10 pounds of cardboard. Help make this year’s bonfire the biggest. Eat cheesecake and collect cardboard!


Great Scott class of 2023! Despite the most awkward voting process ever, it looks like we are decisively “Toppin” the timeline and going Back to the Future! Come help us get spirit week off to an 88 mile per hour start — grab a friend and come to the Hallway & Float meeting in Morse 202, or the Skit meeting in the Res Life office with Mr. Ryan. Let’s get ready to show the world what 2023 can do with 1.21 gigawatts!  2023 Rocks!


Attention — Attention — Hilltopper Earthlings… ONE SJA is under attack by maroon Aliens from the not-so-distant planet Lyndonville! Touchdown is less than a week away and These aliens have evil intentions to disrupt our superior winning streak, BUT the Junior MIB squad is here to protect our universe by foiling all Alien plans spewing our infectious Spirit everywhere while erasing all memory of any Alien invasion. SJA is the Superior Universe and the Juniors are here to defend our turf. Agent Hilltopper is in pursuit of fellow superior agents to join the MIB Squad and neutralize all competitors. All Junior Recruits should report to the following locations to assist in preparations for Operation Homecoming 2022 after Conference Period today from 3:30-5.   Float will prepare in Ranger 115, Hallway will materialize in Ranger 113 and Skit will congregate in Severance 23. Juniors show up for Operation Homecoming today to start saving the Academy Universe!


As Carol Anne says in the 1982 blockbuster Poltergeist, “They’re here,” or better said “It’s here”: “What’s here” you ask? Spirit Week 2022 is here! As Sophomoric teen heartthrob, Ferris Bueller, said in 1986 “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.” Well Sophomores, don’t miss it! “Nobody puts Baby in a corner,” so “Go ahead, make my day” and get yourselves to the Sophomore Class meetings for Skit, Float, and Hallway after Conference Period today. Skit meets in SV15 (Mr. Bosco’s room); Hallway meets in Streeter 208 (Mrs. Murphy’s room); Float meets in Streeter 145 (Mr. Mitchell’s room).  Not sure if you’ll know anyone there? Well “Say hello to your little friend!” They will probably join you. Are you still lacking commitment? “Do or do not, there is no try” ; Know that ​​”If you start to built it, they will come.” I can guarantee that if you attend a Skit, Float, and Hallway after Conference Period today, you will say to yourself, perhaps with an Austrian accent, “I’ll be back!” See you this afternoon!


Happy Birthday today to Maya Bakowski, Katherine Nadeau, and Lily Call! A special Happy Belated Birthday to Mr. Legendre who celebrated his birthday yesterday!


Come celebrate after the game at the Spirit Week Dance on Saturday from 7-10 with a cost of $3.00. The word “Spirit” in Spirit Week refers to what we are all showing this week. This dance is not to be confused with the Halloween Dance, which will happen the week after. So show up at the Gym before 8:00pm, as the doors will close. Again, the cost is $3.00 and the fun is priceless.


In three weeks, Americans will cast a vote to determine the direction of our country in the mid-term elections. When voting, it is important to make a wise choice for the candidate that listens but does not speak, is firm but flexible, and provides support and protection. Vote Cardboard in 2022! Show your support for cardboard by saving it up and bringing it in on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday for the Bonfire. Drop off details will be shared tomorrow!
