Hi! This is just a reminder to fill out the survey that we sent out on Friday. For new members of our community, Star is the winter concert that the entire high school participates in, whether you are part of the music program or not. Thank you so much!
Winter and Spring Track would just like to put it out there that there is a group called Throwers. This encompasses shot put, javelin, and discus. Winter track holds shot put practice and spring track holds all three. To join, enter in track and on the first day find either Eileen Cohn or Julie Soldat and we guide you to throwing! It is a super niche group and it's tons of fun. If you want to get jacked, throwing is for you. See you soon!
Hello! Kent Place Chorale is having the cabaret again this year! For those of you who don't know what it is, it is a fundraising event that raises money for the choral global trip scholarship fund. During the Cabaret, parents and students are served little pastries and tea while members of Chorale perform songs that they prepared! We will have great music for example, Somewhere Over the Rainbow. It will be on Friday, November 8th at 7-8 pm in the Field House. For RSVP, admission for students is $10, the admission for parents and adults is $50, and Faculty and Staff give 50% off, so the admission for you is $25! Please RSVP by November 1st, so by this Friday, since we need to know how many tables and food we need. Later, we will send the RSVP form though email. Thank you!
Maurice is coming for the 9th graders on Friday, November 15 from 5:30 - 7:30. Dinner and dessert will be served. An RSVP will be sent out this week.

Thank you so much for your participation in last week's LGBT+ History Month assembly! We really appreciate your thoughtful comments and questions, and we hope you learned something new and enjoyed the assembly. If you would like to further discuss questions and takeaways from the assembly, please join us on Tuesday 10/29 in Dr. Schwartz's room from 1:00-1:30 (bring your lunch).
Every day throughout the month of November I will be posting a different challenge which promotes sustainability on my instagram @the.sustainability.challenge . I will be sending out a google sheet to the Upper School so that you can check off every day that you participate. If you have every day checked, you can come to a breakfast that I'll provide. Please participate, the challenges are insanely easy, they provide a learning experience and you'll be helping me get my Girl Scout Gold Award! Thanks!
Last LGBTQ+ History Month Announcement and Thank you for Assembly:"Since LGBT history is ever-evolving, we thought it was important to present some recent history for the community today. Many of you might remember the day in June, 2015, when the Supreme Court passed marriage equality in all 50 states.The case that prompted this landmark decision was Obergefell v. Hodges. Obergefell-- or the petioners-- were 14 same-sex couples, who were suing their repective Federal District Courts for discrimination. In a 5-4 decision, the court ruled in favor of Obergefell and asserted that the fundamental liberties under the Fourteenth Amendment applied to the right to marry. This decision made marriage equality possible throughout America. While LGBTQ+ history consists of a lot more than marriage equality, it was a very important step in the LGBTQ+ rights movement that can’t be overlooked."
