Green Day


A reminder that we will follow the Friday Advisory schedule today. Please report to your advisory locations after B block. All 9th graders should report directly to the South Church. 


Please remember there is no school tomorrow due to the Faculty In-service day. 


Students — yesterday alone, 17 students parked in faculty parking spaces while there were plenty of student spaces available. This is unacceptable. If you are unsure of where student parking is compared to faculty parking, please stop by the Headmaster’s Office to be sure of where you should and should not be parking. Also, please note that students are not allowed in the parking lots during free blocks. You should remain in an academic building, the library, or the field house during that time.      


Seniors — don’t forget to submit your nomination for the yearbook dedication. Nominations close today!


Sophomores and Juniors taking the PSAT10 or SAT next week, please be sure to fill out the lunch form sent by Ms. Carr by the end of the day today!


A reminder that this Sunday, the Outing Club invites you to our last Ice Climbing trip of the year. Get the ice while it is still in! If you would like to go, you must see Mr. Weiss for permission slips and boot sizing. We have limited boots, so get to Colby 209 ASAP! Get after it!


Science Olympiad meets today. Email Mr. Eckel if you are planning on being absent.  


Can you feel that? That’s the feeling of Joey Zhuo and Tony Huang staring you down on the badminton court just before their perfectly placed smash shots. Come join the fun and prove that you can return the Joey-Tony smash!

All are welcome. Badminton, tonight, 6:30pm, Field House. See Ms. Smith with questions.


Athletes — today is the day for a nutrition session from 3:45-4:15 in the Gym with a lift party after. Games, door prizes, and conversations on athletic nutrition. Come ready to party. All athletes welcome. Athletic attire not required. 3:45, Gym.


Eight have fallen, eight remain. Yes, it’s the quarterfinals of March Madness in the library. Help propel your most beloved childhood read to the winner’s circle by voting. Check your labs account for the latest questionnaire form and fill it out or come to the library and vote in person. Let’s keep this energy going! A big thank-you to Shelby Lizotte and Norah Blankenship for conceiving this year’s March Madness theme. 


Are you interested in History and writing or poster making? If you said yes, then Ms. Meranze has an opportunity for you. The Vermont Holocaust Memorial is sponsoring an essay and poster contest. The prompt is: Why is it important for students to learn about the Holocaust?  All entries are due by March 21, 2023. Please see Ms. Meranze in Colby 206 or email her at ellen.meranze@stjlabs.com for details.


And now, Mr. Camelio’s Joke of the week: Over vacation, I walked past a farm, and a sign said, “Duck comma(,) eggs.” I thought that was an unnecessary comma. And then it hit me.


Happy Birthday today to Lily Hinman and Hailey Kimbell! Happy Birthday tomorrow to John Kelley and Alan Kennison-Prue, on Saturday to JD Miller, and on Sunday to Ariella Chambers, Aimee Crown, and Luke Walton!


Today is the Blood Drive in the Field House. If you signed up to donate blood, be sure to check your email for a message from the American Red Cross. The subject line is “Remember to use RapidPass.” In this email will be your appointment time and a link to complete your pre-donation reading and health history questions. Please be sure to check your junk email if you have not received it. By completing your Rapid Pass before your appointment, you will shorten any wait times. See you in the field house! Any questions, see Mrs. McCaffrey in the Field House.



Bonjourno to all those interested in Outing Club. We will have a short meeting this coming Thursday (the day now nationally recognized as “Outing Club Day”) to discuss our hopes and dreams from spring trips. Also…maybe, just maybe….we will throw ice axes at snow targets. Meet in Ranger 215 right after school. See Mr. Demsky if you have any questions.


Congratulations to Quinn Murphy and Dawson Wilkins on being selected as a member of the 2023 Vermont Shrine Bowl Team! 


Congratulations to Ruth Krebs and Sisu Lange who were named All State Nordic Skiers by the Vermont Nordic Coaches Association. And congrats, also, to Charles Krebs for his Honorable Mention. Their performances this year contributed to the great success we had this year. They have represented our school well!


Last week, we had a large number of students participate in the National MathCon contest. If a student scores in the top 5% of their grade level, they are automatic qualifiers for the Finals in Chicago in early May. Students scoring in the top 10% are selected as alternates. Congratulations to the following students:

Elle Kim – scored in the top 5% and is an automatic qualifier

Joey Yan, William Eaton, and Theodora Montague – Names alternates

Congratulations to Elle, Joey, Will, and Theodora! Please be sure to meet Mr. Legge on the front steps of Fuller immediately after Chapel for a photo.
