Founders Day 2022

Following a cancelled Founders Day in 2020, an atypical, hybrid Founders Day in 2021, and a delayed event in 2022, Founders Day was back at last on Friday, May 27. Needless to say, the energy and the volume were high – and parents were invited.
Earlier this spring, students and faculty divided into inter-grade teams, each with a cereal-themed name ("Fruity Pebbles" and "Frosted Flakes"), in line with this year's theme. On the day, teams alternated between relay races in the Gym and lip syncing battles, complete with choreographed dances and props, in the Atrium, followed by lunch with friends and parents.

Relay components included "transport the 6th grader carrying a balloon" and "complete a three-legged race while falling only slightly less than one's opponent." Lip sync judges included faculty, administrators, and one of the numerous Class of 2021 alums who kept popping up.
