We are excited to announce that in the spring semester we will begin offering a 7th-9th grade group for The Little Inklings led by Mr. Carpenter.
The purpose of The Little Inklings is to allow students to engage quality literature with the goal of cultivating the human spirit through normative inquiry. The group is named in honor of The Inklings, a famous informal literary group at the University of Oxford. The Inklings included notable persons such as C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien. The group size is limited to 12 students and will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. If you would like your child to participate in the spring semester, please email Dr. Tarpley at email@example.com. There are typically around six gatherings per semester on Wednesday's from 4-5 pm after school. The specific dates are to be determined.

Last Performance TONIGHT at 7pm!
Following the closing arguments in a murder trial, the 12 members of the jury must deliberate, with a guilty verdict meaning death for the accused, an inner-city teen. As the dozen jurors try to reach a unanimous decision while sequestered in a room, one juror casts considerable doubt on elements of the case. Personal issues soon rise to the surface, and conflict threatens to derail the delicate process that will decide one boy's fate. Recommended for audience members ages 13 and older.
Parent Volunteers Needed for Staff Christmas Party
Every year, the families come together and host a Christmas party and dinner for the teachers, administration, and coaches to say THANK YOU for all of their dedication to our children. This is a rare chance for our staff to relax together and they are always so grateful for the efforts made by the parents and students to make this a beautiful event. This year we will celebrate on Thursday, December 5, so it is time to find all of our helpers and volunteers for the event! We are excited to have you work with us!
Below you will find a Google Sign up with short descriptions of various roles and links to help you get a vision for the event. We opted this year to add several ways for families to help in advance from home, as we know time is precious! We are asking that you look through the sign up form and choose the options that are best for you by Friday, November 15. This allows the team one extra week to fill in any holes and still allows all of us to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday.

Senior Humanities Seminar Visits Archaeological Museum
On Tuesday, October 29th, the Senior Humanities Seminar visited the Charles D. Tandy Archaeological Museum located on the campus of Southwestern Baptist Seminary. They were provided a tour of the museum by Mr. Carpenter, our Ancient Civilizations instructor and doctoral student in archaeology at the Seminary. The students were able to explore questions such as how culture is expressed through material evidence found in the ancient world, and how the interaction of cultures can be identified through objects. We are grateful to Mr. Carpenter for his expertise in this area and the time he offered to our students.
