Friday – Class Meeting
We are happy to report that we have three semifinalists for the 2022 Governor’s Honors Program:
- Seager Hunt – Science /Chemistry
- Julianne Peek – Visual Arts
- Ricardo Urena – World Languages /Spanish
Approximately 3,200 students were nominated to the state-level competition, and over 1,300 of them have been selected as semifinalists for state interviews/auditions in February. All of our applicants should be proud to have been put forward by our faculty.
Join us on Wednesday, March 2 at 7:30 p.m. in the Bertelsmann PH for a magical night celebrating Upper School Fine Arts. Luminaria 2022 includes music ensembles from the US band and orchestra, readings from the creative writing students and the Bertelsmann Lobby will come to life with a “pop-up” visual arts exhibit featuring our senior artists. The first Luminaria was organized and presented in 2016. For several years, the event was held in the Bertelsmann Lobby and in 2018 the event was moved to The Foundry and a packed house! This year we are excited to present Luminaria once again on the Athens Academy campus and to a “live” audience. You may be asking – what is a “Luminaria”? Simply put, it is a paper bag with a lit candle inside. Illumination, energy, and warmth are the inspiration of Luminaria and inspire this evening of the Arts.
The Black History Month 2022 theme, “Black Health and Wellness,” explores “the legacy of not only Black scholars and medical practitioners in Western medicine, but also other ways of knowing (e.g., birthworkers, doulas, midwives, naturopaths, herbalists, etc.) throughout the African Diaspora. The 2022 theme considers activities, rituals and initiatives that Black communities have done to be well.”
“Emily is described as a great teammate who is encouraging, positive, dedicated, and fun. She has improved every season and has been a great leader.Emily is an extremely talented equestrian as well and we are excited to see her success at the next level” – Brian Olson, Head Coach, Varsity Girls Basketball
“Camden comes to basketball every day with a positive attitude and is prepared to work hard. He is a great teammate with a unique sense of humor. Camden puts in the time necessary in the offseason to be successful and we are excited about Camden’s future in the basketball program.” – Mike Salvia, Head Coach, Varsity Boys Basketball
