Ms. Murphy’s Weekly Announcements: here

DEIB Student Task Force

The DEIB Student Task Force application is going live today! The DEIB Student Task Force is a group of Upper School students who work to facilitate DEIB conversations within the Upper School community, and we are looking for 2 current 9th or 10th graders to join. It’s a great opportunity, so please be sure to apply if interested! The application window will close Friday, April 5.

Mock Trial

During Spring Break, the Kent Place Mock Trial team competed at regional playoffs and won, making them Central region champs for the first time in Kent Place History! They went on to compete at Semifinals and ended up ranking 3rd in the State (out of 215 teams)! A huge thank you to everyone on the team, especially those who had to learn new roles last-minute for competition.

Athletics Association

Athletics Association is starting the annual March Madness bracket competition for March Madness Sweet 16! We will send out a form with the teams as soon as they are out, and you can submit guesses for who you think will win each competition bracket. The winner will receive a prize for their advisory!

A reminder that the second Green Key Revisit Day is this Wednesday, 3/27! If you are a Green Key member, please check your email for any assignments you may have received. For everyone else, please remember to be friendly and helpful to any visitors you may see!

Hackathon Committee

This is a reminder about the fourth annual MakeKPS Hackathon, which will be held on Saturday, April 6th from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.
