Notes from the North Campus – 1.29.21

From your north campus principal, Ann Taylor

Good Winter Day at North Campus!  What a good week it has been. Kindergarten took us “Around the World in 80 minutes” with their annual festival; class pictures and retakes were accomplished for all classes so no need for a make-up date; dialectic spirit day; and a very, very busy reenrollment season. IF you have not reenrolled your student(s), please make sure you do so by Sunday, January 31. We have a number of new family applications already batched and some sections have a waiting list already in place.


  • Feasts – all postponed until after spring break
  • Festivals for grammar will function like Durin’s Day in December – teachers will let you know the details (Zoom and some live components may be possible)
  • Speech Meet finals – possibly live stream and/or recorded for viewing later – waiting to see

Calendar events for this coming week: 

  • January 31 Re-enrollment Closes
  • February 1 Enrollment Opens to Public for new students
  • February 2 Chapel (formal uniform)
  • February 2 JCL Leaders meeting at lunch
  • February 3 North House Leaders Meeting over lunch
  • February 5 Science Triathlon packets go home
  • February 5 Winter In-service @ Midtown campus ½ day for Students
  • NO LUNCH dismissal at 11:35

Keeping our campus healthy: Reminder and thanks to all of you for your partnership with The Academy in helping make it the safest possible from all germs during this winter season by taking your student(s) temperature prior to coming to school. If they are exhibiting any signs of illness, error on the side of caution for the community’s health.

Have a great weekend – keep safe and healthy!!
