Four months of training culminated in one golden day for Byron Park ’24.
The Christ School senior had not one, but two gold medals draped around his neck as he packed up his bow on Saturday. Byron won a pair of state tournaments within hours of one another – the N.C. State Indoor Archery Championship and the N.C. State Indoor Junior Olympic Archery Championship.
Back in September, five boys and two faculty members trekked to UNC-Chapel Hill in search of historical treasure.
The Thomas Cogdell Wetmore Papers is a collection housed in UNC’s Wilson Library. Most of the collection is letters between Christ School’s co-founders – Father Wetmore and his wife, Susanna Boone Allan, from 1892 and 1893, prior to their marriage. Additionally, there are letters that Father Wetmore sent while he was traveling up north to raise funds for the school in its infancy.
Making a list and checking it twice takes on new meaning when one considers that roughly two-thirds of Christ School’s student body (197 boys total) have been named to either the Head of School’s High Honor Roll or Honor Roll for the 2023-24 Fall Term.
Let’s be honest: the novelty of staying quiet wears off quickly for 300 boys.
Christ School did not make the student section wait long Tuesday night – about 1 minute and 55 seconds to be exact. Lleyton Thomas-Johnson ’24 boarded a miss by Legion Collegiate (S.C.), raced back down the floor, and took a feed from Bryson Cokley ’24.
Lleyton’s shot from just inside the paint kissed off the glass for points No. 9 and No. 10, the latter being the magic number in the annual Christmas in the Greenie Dome or "Silent Night" basketball game.
No good deed goes unrewarded in Christ School’s Service Learning program. Especially an abundance of good deeds.
Congratulations to nine Greenies whose selflessness and hard work has earned them President’s Volunteer Service Awards. The boys were presented with bronze medals and certificates in Monday’s Assembly.
Posters line the walls of Pingree Theater, one for every play that Mary Dillon has directed since 2001. Her 40th is a timely holiday gift to the Christ School community the weekend before Christmas Break.
“ALL IS CALM – The Christmas Truce of 1914” will be presented Friday and Saturday in Pingree at 7:30 each night. Admission is free.
But you don’t get here after 123 years by being complacent. That is why it was so important for the faculty and staff, parents, as well as the boys to have sessions for learning and discussion with Dr. Michael Reichert on Monday.
