As students begin their final semester, they remember the fun and sometimes stressful times this school year has brought thus far. Many events took place that brought students and parents together, such as Father Daughter, Spike and Splash and, Christmas Formal.

Along with social events, students took time to reflect on their academics and how they can further succeed in the upcoming semester.

Ava Camposano (‘21) says, “I thought the work was moderate; what you put into it is what you get out of it. Most of the time, I was pretty on top of my work and got good grades.”

Adriana Vargas (‘21) says, “Overall, I enjoyed my first semester, but I found the initial change from middle school work to harder high school work to be a bit overwhelming.”

As senior athletes, it is a bittersweet time competing in their final season as a jaguar. Athletes from crew, cross country, golf, swimming, diving and volleyball have all successfully wrapped up their final seasons and will especially remember their teams’ experiences and their own athletic journey.

Morgan Salzsieder (‘18) says, “My favorite part of the season was beating TC with all of my friends supporting me in the stands, and I’m going to miss being a part of such a fun team with girls who became some of my closest friends.”
