The Hackley Boys and Girls Track & Field teams both performed well at the Ivy League Championship meet at the Armory Center in New York City on Thursday, February 16. Both the boys and girls teams placed third overall. Congratulations to all our champions and the entire team for all their hard work and success! Read on for details....
Hackley Lower School students, teachers and parents spent the first weeks of Febraury participating in the Building Bridges program, which seeks to increase student awareness and understanding of people with different abilities; to provide first-person experiences that develop empathy and compassion; and to reinforce the belief that all people, no matter their differences, visible or invisible, have the same social emotional needs and feelings.
Twenty-five Hackley students in grades 7-12 earned a total of 36 awards (Gold Key, Silver Key, and Honorable Mention) in the regional 2017 Scholastic Writing Awards. According to Writopia Lab, the regional parter of The Alliance for Young Artists and Writers, “a panel of professional novelists, editors, teachers, poets, librarians, journalists, and other literary professionals selected these works from the 1,920 works submitted this year.”
On Thursday, February 2, the Lower School was thrilled to spend an interactive day with bestselling author and illustrator, Grace Lin. Students and faculty journeyed through Grace's childhood as she read passages from her award winning stories, were entertained by legends of the Chinese Zodiac, and created their own good luck drawings to take home.
Congratulations to the Hackley Boys Varsity Squash team, which has gone undefeated this season in the Ivy Preparatory School League. This marks the second year in a row the team has won the Ivy League Championship.
