Spirit Week Wrap-Up!

Last week was one of the student body’s favorite weeks of the year! It was so great to see all of the fun and creative ideas that people came up with throughout the week.

A big thank you and congratulations to MacKenna M., Camille M., and Alex H., the designers of our amazing 2017 spirit week shirts! They are awesome!

So, on to one of our favorite parts of the week– The Student vs. Faculty Basketball Game! We began with an amazing performance by the Upper School acapella group, Fourteen Hours, next we got to hear about all of our Middle School Winter Sports teams. Then we were introduced to our special guests– two Duke basketball player Kyra Lambert and Sean Obi and a Duke volleyball player, Jordan Tucker. We had a very exciting basketball game, but the faculty squeaked by with the win! It was very close and a big thank you to all of our players…
