Greg Dreisewerd

Swimming Toward Victory

Congratulations to Greg Dreisewerd ’21 who is highlighted by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch for earning individual medals at the Class 1 swimming meet, placing 7th in the 500-yard freestyle and 8th in the 100 butterfly. He also helped the Rams earn two 6th place finishes in the 200 medley and 400 free relay.

Maddie Goldberg

Totally Awesome Girl Group

Senior Maddie Goldberg ’19 was on television last night in an interview by Frank Cusumano of KSDK News Channel 5 who did a story on her Totally Awesome Girlfriend Group (TAGG), a group of dancers with Down syndrome. Maddie directs the 8-12 dancers who are women ages 18-28.

Watch the happiness expressed as Maddie teaches the TAGG team to dance here.

Girls Golf Team

MICDS Golf Team Jumps for Joy

In the Ladue News, our MICDS girls golf team was highlighted for earning 3rd place in the Class 1 state golf tournament with Parker Perry ’20 scoring 3rd place overall.

Artwork Full of Compassion

Two of the top three winners of the 100 Neediest Cases campaign are MICDS students. Out of thousands of artwork submissions, Livie Warren ’21 earned 2nd place for her drawing of a young child who is struggling to survive on the streets while Caroline Abel ’19 earned 3rd place for her drawing of a young girl facing a very challenging childhood.

Running for 96 years, this campaign challenges students to submit drawings that highlight struggles that people are facing while also showing hope—hope that stems from the campaign, the kindness of others and many charities. The campaign helps raise awareness and support for these many cases in need.

Read the article to learn more about the campaign and how you can adopt a case. The article features both MICDS students and Fine and Performing Arts Teacher Tiffany D’Addario. Also, vote daily through December 23 for one artist’s work to be featured in a St. Louis Post-Dispatch feature story.
