    Did you hear “The Shot around the World?” Yesterday, the boys and girls basketball teams, played extremely hard and gave everything they could against their teachers but just fell short of a victory like the British army did against Lexington Minuteman in the American Revolution. The teachers were able to defend their crown with a convincing 51-37 win. Thank you to all the players, fans and teachers who attended the game.

    Afternoon Announcements:

    If you participated in the Day of Silence (and even if you did not), please feel free to drop in to the GSA in room 238 to talk about your experience.
