Middle and Upper School Connections: Team Relay Challenge!

During I block today, members of the Upper School cross country team organized the first annual Team Relay Challenge for 8th grade students! 8th grader were invited to Ring Family Field to engage in a relay race including hula-hooping, tower-building and speed-walking, all hosted by Upper School biology teacher and cross country coach Justin Hackitt and Upper School student organizers.

Not only did our Middle and Upper School students enjoy the beautiful morning (and, of course, treats!), but our 8th graders made connections and engaged in some friendly sportsmanship with Upper School cross country runners–the future teammates of those who choose to take up this discipline- and camaraderie-building sport next year!

Fall Sports Assembly

On Tuesday, December 12, the Middle School gathered in the CFT to celebrate the end of an exciting fall season of sports. In the Fall, students competed in boys flag football, coed tackle football, coed swimming, coed cross country, girls tennis, girls basketball, and physical education. We are so proud of all our athletes for their hard work, commitment, and sportsmanship on and off the field. Great job, Patriots!
