Safi is a human backboard! He wears his opponents down with his relentless consistency. However, he is not by any means one-dimensional – he hits hard when he needs to, attacks the net when the opportunity strikes and is not afraid to hit moon balls if that is what it takes to win the point. He is the winningest player on our team with a personal record of 8-0, giving up only 1 set in 8 matches and outscoring his opponents 95 games to 24! Way to go Safi! – Jami Cashin, Head Coach, Varsity Tennis

“Carson excels at tennis because of her hard work and perseverance. She shows up to every practice ready to improve, always with a smile on her face and a great attitude. She works so hard to create a positive atmosphere so that practices are fun and the players enjoy their time together, all while inspiring her peers to work hard to improve their game. The team is so lucky to have her as their team leader this year, leading by example on and off the court. Even when she was injured, she was at every practice and every match, cheering on her teammates and helping them to stay focused and work hard. We are so excited to have her back on the courts and can’t wait to see what the season holds for her and the rest of the team! Congratulations Carson!” – Jami Cashin, Head Coach, Varsity Tennis

Women’s History Month

Women’s History Month was established by Congress in 1987 to celebrate the achievements of women in American history. Each day this month, we will recognize women from America and other parts of the world who have made important contributions to humanity.

Hypatia

Hypatia (c. 370-415 C.E.) was an Alexandrian philosopher, mathematician, and astronomer whose academic achievements were overshadowed by her brutal murder. She was educated by her father, Theon, who was a renowned mathematician and professor at the University of Alexandria, and even collaborated with him on some of his commentaries. Hypatia became a scholar in her own right, writing on astronomy (including work with the astrolabe) and mathematics. She also pursued Neoplatonian philosophy and her public lectures were very popular. It was this popularity – and her promotion of ideas that were considered by Christians to be heresy – that made her a target of the new archbishop who was attempting to assert his authority in a struggle between religious and civil authority. When Hypatia was on her way to the university, a mob of Christian zealots dragged her from her carriage into a church where they stripped her and beat her to death. Though her murder and martyrdom to philosophy is remembered more than her scholarship, Hypatia was known as a woman of great knowledge, an excellent teacher, and perhaps the first woman in mathematics.

Thank you so much for being diligent about wearing your masks! A few of you are still having trouble and for clarification, here is the process for you:
 
1. A faculty member will give you a warning.
2. After the warning, that faculty member will infract you and you will serve detention. This will be communicated to your parents as well.
3. After you serve detention, if another infraction occurs, you, your advisor, and your parents will meet with Mrs. Zalac and there will be escalated consequences.
