Mrs. Murphy’s Weekly Updates: Here
The Ethics Institute
The Ethics Institute has a variety of summer programs happening this July that you can sign up for by emailing Ms. Sykes. One program this year is Ethics and the Arts, in which we are going to be designing and creating murals on campus. We will also be going to Philly since the theme is ethics in street art.
Hi everyone! As March Madness comes to an end, we will be having a mini bracket competition for the Final Four where you can predict the scores and winners of each game, as well as the two teams which will be in the final. You may only fill out the form once individually but multiple people in an advisory can fill it out, as well as faculty. The closest score prediction will win a mini basketball hoop and a box of donuts for their advisory! Also, we will be having a voluntary knockout competition soon between the grades. More information to come!
