White Day

 

Freshmen — you will be meeting in the Amphitheater for Chapel tomorrow. Please report directly to the Amphitheater. All upperclassmen should report to your normal advisory locations. 

 

Seniors, please be sure to fill out the survey sent to you by Ms. Carr about your after high school plans.

 

If you have already picked up your Student Gov petition from your Class Dean and have all the signatures but are holding it until noon on Friday because that’s how you roll, please pay attention to this announcement. Waiting until the last possible minute is not how Student Government rolls, so please bring your completed petition to Mr. Ryan in the Res Life Office in Severance.

 

Do you like flowers? What about spring? Maybe you have a little bit of cabin fever now that AP exams are finally out of the way. If you answered yes to any of these questions, pick out your favorite floral, spring-themed casual attire and come to the spring dance tomorrow evening in the amphitheater! The dance will start at 7:30 and run until 10 pm. Doors close at 8:30, unless you are coming from a school-sponsored event like a game, in which case you can enter until 9. Once the doors close no one will be admitted, so make sure to come in good time. This event is for Academy students only, so please bring your school ID. The cost is $3 for one, or $5 for a pair and food is free! Tomorrow evening, 7:30, amphitheater!

 

Attention Senior Auction bidders! The parking spots behind Colby Hall that are up for bid will close at 12:15 Friday afternoon. Be sure to get your bid in; you don’t want to lose out on the best parking spots on campus! All other auction items will remain active until 3:30 Tuesday afternoon. Good luck!

 

Thank you to those of you who picked up an application for the Boys State program. Please remember to submit your applications by this Friday to Mr. Mantius in Ranger 211. Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity.

 

Academy Theatre’s production of Mamma Mia! has been moved to May 25, 26 and 27 at 7:00pm in Fuller Hall.  Tickets are available online at Catamount Arts. Faculty and staff are admitted free of charge and you can email Mr. Walker for the ticket code if you would like to reserve a seat. Academy Theatre is also looking for faculty and staff who would like to help backstage and front of house with tickets and ushering.

 

Seniors, there are 80 spots left for the trip to Six Flags on May 29th. $40 gets you a ticket into the park and ride down in style with a seat on the coach bus! Stop by Campus Life to sign up with Mr. LaCroix. If you are concerned with the cost, please come by and chat! 

 

The Dance Department Spring “Open House” will take place Saturday, May 14 at 7 PM in the Morse Black Box and Sunday, May 15 at 2 PM. All students, faculty, staff, families and friends are invited to join the dancers in celebrating the end of the term. There is no charge.

 

Oh, I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rain. I’ve seen sunny days that I thought would never end. I’ve seen lonely times when I could not find a friend, but I always thought that I could buy a raffle ticket again. Unfortunately, after today you won’t be able to. The Class of 2023 is selling tickets to James Taylor, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats; the Dave Matthews Band; Ringo Starr and the Avett Brothers; Odesza with Sylvan Esso and Elderbrook; and Jack Johnson today in the dining hall during lunch. The shows are at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion this summer — stop by our table to get dates, times, and raffle tickets! Today is the last day of sales, and the drawing will be made early next week. Raffle tickets are ten dollars apiece — and remember, each raffle ticket is a chance to win a pair of tickets worth upwards of eighty dollars! Today is our last day of sales, so don’t delay!

 

Looking for a fun local leadership development program and an opportunity to meet new people? Consider applying for the Rotary Youth Leadership Academy scheduled for June 24-26 at NVU Lyndon. For more information, see Mrs. Cady in the Straszko Alumni House.

 

Writer’s Block will meet today after school in Ranger 110, Mrs. Mackenzie’s classroom. New members are very welcome! Come join with some friendly fellow writers to work on a writing prompt and/or share your current writing ideas. There will be cookies! 

 

Time is running out to come knit with us this school year! If you already know how to knit or if you’ve always wanted to learn, come join us for knitting club after school today in Severance 16. We have all the yarn, needles, and expertise you need to start a new project or finish an old one.

 

Start thinking Spring Day because it is just 8 days away! (Please cheer for dramatic effect in your Advisory locations). It will feature events such as Jug Ball, Corn Hole, basketball, soccer, trivia, blindfold drawing contest, and the Yard Sale (Please say “Yard Sale…Wow!” for dramatic effect in your advisory locations). Start saving your money as boarding students will be selling items that they will not be able to bring home for amazingly low yard sale prices.  Portions of the proceeds will go to charity. Show your love for Spring Day people by making some noise (Advisors: Please instruct your group to let out thunderous applause for 10 seconds).

 

Happy Birthday today to Ashton Fischer!
