SAA and the Committee For The Arts launched a new annual gallery night titled Perspective. Gallery Night took place on the evening of Thursday, April 26th. It featured group projects created by upper and lower school as well as works selected from submissions and classwork throughout the school year. Attendees were able to interact with art and even had a wonderful photo op designed by first through fifth grade students. Students each created a feather but had no idea that the final installation would create wings! To add to the experience, Mrs. Weber coordinated student musicians for an extra layer of artistic expression. We look forward to celebrating this new SAA tradition next year!
The Science Olympiad Varsity Team and JV trial event team members put forth their best effort during the State competition on Saturday at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The season started in the Fall of 2017 with two evolving JV teams and a blossoming Varsity Team. And here we are today celebrating an amazing feat...Second Place in State and onward to NATIONALS at Colorado State University!!!
Congratulations to all! And thank you to our parents and coaches for their dedication and commitment throughout the SO season! A huge THANK YOU to COLLEEN STORIZ, who spearheaded Science Olympiad at SAA and developed the strong team we have today!
Here we come Fort Collins!
Today was Shakespeare Fest, an SAA tradition. Students were encouraged to come wearing and most did wear period dress. The gym became transformed into Westminster Market Place and the entire school enjoyed an opening ceremony with a special appearance from Queen Elizabeth, Christopher Marlowe, and William Shakespeare! Plus, a falconer brought his falcon and shared information about the past time. The morning was full of storytelling and visiting various shops and demonstrations students had researched and put together. The afternoon kicked off with an all-school parade and continued with seventh and eighth grade Shakespearean performances.
