Prep School Celebrates 2019-20 School Year
Marquis Austin

Last Thursday, Prep School students and faculty held one final gathering to celebrate the end of the 2019-20 school year. At the beginning of the event, Prep School Director Joanie Dean reflected on this year's core value—curiosity. "It is our duty to be curious about other perspectives and life experiences," she said. "Listen with a curious mind and an open heart." Later, the music department presented an amazing virtual performance of U2's "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" from this year's Concert Chorale students. Recently, the PS issued an online team building challenge to its 8-11th grade students called "Capture the Screen." In 40 junior-led teams, students were tasked with a set of challenges, including making a safari and recreating a famous story plot. Dean and math teacher Andy Chappell thanked this year's participants and distributed awards to groups with the most creative photos. The virtual assembly also consisted of moving remarks from new Assistant Director Dr. Eric Conrad, a spectacular video in which Dean and Latin teacher Scott Wilson brings the dearly missed sounds of the PS to everyone at home and a send-off to this year's departing faculty. We wish Prep School students and faculty a fantastic summer.
