We got another dose of holiday cheer this week (in addition to our hallway decor) in the form of the Lower School Choir’s annual visit to sing us holiday songs. The cuteness factor is off the charts … and not only the singers in their fantastic holiday finery and whimsical headgear, but also the high school students bopping and singing along with them! We finished with a joint rendition of “Rudolph” and huge applause for the little ones. Thanks so much to music teacher Kim Rash for bringing the group our way every year!

Congratulations are in order to the five High School students – Anna Hardwick-Jones, Christ Moo, Eden Baize, Katie Mushkin, and Lily Habich – who participated in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) along with a number of Middle School students. All students wrote over 10,000 words, and Katie and Eden even reached the adult/professional author 50,000 word (200+ page) goal!

I hope many of you can attend our annual Showcase of Plays tonight or tomorrow at 7:00 p.m.  The playwrights, directors, actors, and crew have been working hard to present this student showcase – an often poignant, sometimes funny, always honest view into the creative minds of SFS students. The improv troupe and the “Dead Poets” will also be performing. Join us!
