White Day


Calling all music–lovers — don’t forget to see Mr. Mackenzie in the Learning Center or with Mr. Lacroix in the Student Life Office to sign up for the Sofia Philharmonic Orchestra!  Come watch this world-class group play an all-Mozart program just up the road at Lyndon Institute on Wednesday, February 7. Tickets are free for students, but this is going to be one popular show, so make sure you sign up today!


Last year, the “Make it Better” club and many others partnered with the NEK Council on Aging to create Valentine’s Day cards with messages of love and warmth for local elderly community members. This year, we are doing another Valentine’s Card drive, but it will look a little different. Your first opportunity to help will be in advisory on Wednesday and Friday.  Don’t forget to be creative! Another opportunity will take place on Thursday in the library. Throughout the day and after school, there will be a table with supplies to make Valentine’s Day cards. Please stop by and make a card or two in your free block or study hall. Thanks to everyone who can help make Valentine’s Day a little more special for our elderly community members! 


The Hilltopper Scholars’ Bowl team competed in the first round of state competition and scored over 100 points in all four rounds.  The team will return for the second day of questioning in April.  Congratulations to team members Vicki Scherer, Sam Babcock, Phoebe Donn, and Aleksey Strokanov.


Boys Varsity Hockey picked up a 3 to 1 victory over Missisquoi on Saturday.  Memphis Mastine, Evan Windrow, and Nate Cushing scored for the team.  Nate Delman stopped 24 of the 25 shots he faced to help with the win.


The Girls Nordic team finished in first place at Saturday’s Montpelier Classic Race. Tillie Lange (2nd), Ava Purdy (3rd), Ellie Reed (7th), and Maddie Blanchard (10th) dominated the top 10, and Kate Mackenzie’s 12th–place finish broke a tiebreak with Montpelier High School.  The girls’ JV team also finished in 1st, with Effie Dunn, Una McKinnon, Esme Kimber, and Kathryn Zajko taking 4 of the top 5 places.  The boys’ team, led by Sisu Lange’s 2nd place finish and Nick Reed’s impressive 6th place, finished in third overall. 


Kingdom Blades beat Burr & Burton on Saturday, 2–0. Izzy Butler scored both goals, both assisted by Brooke-Lynn Choiniere.  Kingdom Blades is now the only girls’ hockey team in Vermont to remain undefeated!


Varsity Girls Basketball improved to 10–2 with a win on Friday night over Burlington, 47–42. The Toppers capitalized on an outstanding defensive effort to anchor the win. Hayden Wilkins led the way with 16 points, and Cassidy Kittredge followed with 12.


Happy Birthday today to Kayla Sline, Avah Ward, and Gunnar Ward
