Are you concerned with the current state of affairs in the United States? Do you want your voice to be heard? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then listen carefully. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders wants to hear from you! Bernie is sponsoring his “State of the Union” essay contest. In this short essay (250-500 words), you need to identify a problem that is facing the United States today and propose ideas on how the issue could be solved. SJA students have fared well in this essay contest and a recent graduate, Quinn Nelson-Mayo, won the contest three years ago, there were three finalists from SJA two years ago, Maely Brightman was a finalist last year. If you are named a finalist, you will have the opportunity to meet the Senator at the Vermont Statehouse and your essay will be entered into the Congressional Record — making your work an official part of American history! Please see Mr. Eckhardt or any Social Studies teacher for more information about this opportunity.

Good morning Hilltoppers! You may have noticed some colorful rocks scattered around campus recently. The Academy’s SCOPE Club has painted Kindness Rocks for you all to enjoy.

If you find a rock that you’d rather keep for yourself, that’s fine too! It’s our way of adding a splash of color to a cold winter’s day!
