White Cohort Day


Congratulations to this month’s Chef B Random Act of Kindness winners…Ms. Photiades’ advisory and Mr. Rowe’s advisory! Your goodies will be in your advisor’s mailbox on both Wednesday and Thursday morning!


The NHS Virtual 10K Fundraiser will begin April 1st and will run through the end of the month. We have nine teams running/walking/hiking for nine different charities. You have already heard about the Lund Family Center and Umbrella. Over the next few days, we will highlight the rest of the charities that our other teams will be moving for. You can also see the teams and their charities listed on the bulletin board next to the conference room on first floor of Colby Hall. Scan the QR code displayed on the board to join a team! NHS invites all students, faculty, and staff to join a team. We want everyone to get outside the month of April and to get moving for these worthy charities. Advisors—please play the short videos (included in the email with the Chapel link) describing Teams: Build it Up and St. Johnsbury Academy Cancer Stoppers. Tune in later this week when we highlight Teams: Action Against Alzheimer’s and Team Connect (SJA Assistance Fund).

You can compete (join our own Kat Mayhew!), judge (get trained on the spot), or just show up and cheer. On April 1, at 4:45pm, there will be a poetry reading hosted at Dartmouth College featuring poets Cleopatra Mathis and Joshua Bennett. And on April 9, at 7pm, Peacham Library will be hosting a poetry-sharing event (bring your own work or that of a favorite poet). Please email Mrs. Mackenzie at jemackenzie@stjacademy.org to obtain the Zoom links for these events. You’ll join her and members of the creative writing class there when you attend. Time to get ready to celebrate National Poetry Month in April!
