Favorite memories from the faculty and staff
Mrs. Hadley | Field trips to the Nature Center and Zoo, challenging one another on mathematical reasoning and thinking outside the box, working hard to meet the goals of all students.
Mr. Fleming | My favorite memory was the senior retreat at Camp Higher Ground.
Mr. Lorentz | Watching the whole student section rush the field to celebrate together after winning the Country Day Cup!
Ms. O'Dell | I loved witnessing your thoughtful, kind and productive collaboration in class. You encourage one another, give constructive feedback and have fun.
Mr. Miller | Watching them embrace the struggles of going to High School during a pandemic and truly support and bond with each other. They have come out the other side of the experience as a family and you can see it in everything they do together.
Dr. Law | For my beloved B bell... some of my favorite teaching memories will end up involving you all. The infamous desk-scooting echoing Weber's law on thresholds, your Freud shrine, and the class group photo sent taken on a Saturday night.
Mr. McEachern | Students diving headfirst into bean bag chairs for the best reading spots in the room.
Mrs. Smith | You all will forever be my first senior class. I was welcomed with open arms and it's been a joy and privilege to watch you all grow over the year and begin your college journey. Keep shining and thanks for everything!
