The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Good Citizens Award and Scholarship Contest is intended to encourage and reward the qualities of good citizenship. This award recognizes and rewards individuals who possess good citizenship qualities of dependability, service, leadership and patriotism in their homes, schools and communities. These students are selected by their teachers and peers because they demonstrate these qualities to an outstanding degree. During Advisory on Wednesday, the Senior class was presented with the top 3 students nominated by our faculty. They are (in no particular order) Ellie Coyle, Hannah Roberts, and Sierra Shippee. This year’s DAR Good Citizen Nomination goes to Sierra Shippee!


A special Happy Birthday to Jose Daniel Kabbaz Cherem from the students and proctors in the Barn!
