No Golf Practice Today (due to prom)
Mr. Van Dyke reports that it’s Friday, May 14th and that means tonight is PROM! Many of our upper school students will not be in school today as they prepare for this tradition of traditions, this rite of passage, this incredibly incredible and unforgettable evening of exhilaration! They’ll be getting footloose tonight at Radnor Valley Country Club beginning at 7pm. We hope all attendees have the time of your life!
Ms. Kroberger announced that Outdoors club had PERFECT weather for their trip to Ridley Creek State Park yesterday...A long and beautiful hike, and our two student anglers, Ed Staud and Jameson Boland were given an extra thrill with the sighting of the rare and elusive Palomino Trout!! ...they tried, but he got away. Maybe next time fellas. It was a great afternoon!!
A Reminder from Mrs. Tompkins
It's that time of year again…. time to clean out your desk and return books to the library AND while you are there- it’s the perfect time to find some great summer reading to take out!!
Faculty – Student HORSE Tournament
Three close matches yesterday in the Horse tournament. While Ms. Garguilo ultimately lost, her chaotic style forced Lee to an HO. In the closest match of the tournament, Jonah Lynn truly eked out a win against Mr. Peselli.
And Mr. Cohen harnessed the power of the headband to bring in the one teacher win of the tournament.
Lost and Found
Mr. Wells and Ms. Suplick want to remind everyone to please check the lost and found area in the gym. We have quite the collection of clothing! Any items remaining by the Memorial Day holiday will be donated.
Smash Bros. Tournament

However, instead of this being on a weekend, this time the tournament will be after school on Friday, May 21st. There will be pizza, chips and juice packs. Additional information has been sent out via email including the sign-up form. This tournament is available to teachers as well!
