The Stevenson A team went undefeated to take top honors. This team was comprised of seniors Arjun Nageswaran, David Lee, and Billy Bratton; and juniors Anish Arora and Jonny Abraham who are pictured above.
The B team, with the youngest lineup in Division 1, performed admirably promising years of future success for the program and included junior Spandan Goel; and sophomores Dhruv Pendarkhar, Andrey Vlasov and Srikar Venkatesan.
Recommendations Sought for Stress Relieving Activities
The Student Services DeStress Team is building a Bitmoji resource page with videos, apps and activities that students recommend for reducing stress. Their hope is to create resources for students, families, and staff to refer to in the coming weeks and months to engage in healthy self-care practices.
If you have a favorite app or video that helps you relax or a favorite recipe, craft, or activity that you would like to share with the SHS community, please share it using this submission form. They would especially appreciate photos or videos of people using the activities they recommend to include on their resource page.
Winter Play Details Confirmed
The Patriot Theatre Company confirmed that rehearsals for the winter play “The Compass” will begin virtually on Tuesday, Dec. 8 with tentative performance dates of March 5-7.
Rehearsals in January, February and March may be a combination of remote or hybrid depending on safety guidelines and students will be expected to work on parts of the show over winter break. This interactive play explores the intersection of technology and decision making through the story of a young person who used an app to make a life-altering decision.
Students interested in participating in a cast, crew or leadership role for either “The Compass” or the Freshman Sophomore Winter Play “Almost, Maine” should view the 2021 Winter Play Information Packet for full information including upcoming auditions and sign-up forms.
There are acting roles for “The Compass which can be carried out virtually and both productions will be streamed to audiences online.
