Alert

No Late Start for MS and US - Wednesday, February 1

In view of the lost instructional day Monday, the Middle and Upper Schools will run block schedules through the end of the week (C, D, E, and F rotations). This calendar change means that, except in the Lower School, we will NOT run a late-start Wednesday schedule on February 1. Lower School will still have a late start. Middle and Upper School classes will begin promptly at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, February 1.

MS Talent Show Acts Are Out of this World

Student stars shone brightly at the 2019 Middle School Talent Show. The theme of the show was Out of this World, and our performers blasted off with a variety of acts. Planets and a green alien decorated the stage in Eliot Chapel, and students dressed in festive “space” attire filled the seats. STUCO kicked off the event with a funny video about how to sit safely in the auditorium, and showed a JibJab video starring teachers that had the crowd in stitches.

Eighth grade band The Attic got the crowd rocking, and the show took off from there. Fifth and 6th graders offered gorgeous piano solos and singing, and a monologue from Hamlet. Seventh graders performed an elegant ballet pointe dance with live piano, a magic show and a peppy song featuring the ukulele. Eighth grade performances rounded out the show with an original ukulele performance about refugees, singing and more piano. Even faculty got into the fun, showing a carpool karaoke-style video to “Groove is in the Heart.”

In between grade performances, best-dressed students (voted on by their peers) were crowned with tiaras and top hats, and were awarded the opportunity to skip the lunch line today. STUCO peppered the show with space jokes, like “What’s an astronaut’s favorite key? The SPACE bar!”

Faculty judged pronounced The Attic as the winner of the 2019 Middle School Talent Show, and the crowd erupted in applause. Congratulations to STUCO for producing a wonderful show and to our talented students who performed.
