On the last official day of school during the Continuity of Learning Plan, the Upper School student body celebrated the traditional Move-Up Day Ceremony this afternoon via Zoom conference. Despite the non-traditional format, there was much to celebrate as we marked this important moment for the Upper School.
On April 21, Newman Held its first-ever virtual Founder’s Day. While stay-at-home orders remained in place, students, faculty and staff were able to come together in an online setting to celebrate this special event.
At the annual Cum Laude Assembly, members of the Upper School’s senior class were inducted into the prestigious honor society. The assembled students and faculty were addressed by physician, humanitarian, and Distinguished Alumnus Dr. Scott Kellermann ’63.
Twin victories at the Swimming State Championships marked Newman’s 99th and 100th State Championship wins. This is the fifth consecutive championship win for the boys, while the girls won four of the last five titles.
Newman’s 6th Grade science teacher Lisa Swenson recently traveled to Washington, D.C. to receive the 2018 Presidential Award for Mathematics and Science Teaching, the highest award given by the government to K-12 teachers of science and mathematics.
