One-Act Plays: Watch Party April 9th

In the fall, several students participated in a playwriting elective with the hope of creating an original 10-minute one-act play. When everyone returned from our winter recess, students came together to produce and perform "The Album" by Roxanne (grade 11) and "All These Weeks" by Ruby (grade 12). "The Album" is composed of a series of monologues in which three people share memories of their own version of a man who’s passed away. In "All These Weeks," four friends in a high school get caught in gossip and misunderstanding and have to decide whether they will reconcile.

on February 12, 2021 By Molly Huddle Coffey | community
Each year, members of our staff write a Valentine poem with a couplet for each student and member of the community. On an afternoon before Valentine's Day, C.J. and the admin team put on their finest Valentine-y fashions and read the poem for all to hear. This tradition started with former Headmaster, John Rouleau, and has continued with Abbey Baker (English teacher) and Emily Skoler (College Counselor) writing the verses.

Newly Restored Trails at Rock Point

on September 30, 2020 By Molly Huddle Coffey | News Feed
We are excited to share that the Rock Point Trails Plan to restore and upgrade the walking paths on the Rock Point peninsula is finished! The plan included construction and improvements on many trails, including popular trails to Sunset Cliff, The Point, and Eagle Bay. Timber and Stone, LLC completed the trail work, adding wooden boardwalks and stone steps, and widening gravel paths. These improvements will make the trails more accessible, preserve the land from erosion, and protect local plant species. Additionally, they added more signs to guide public access.
