This week's highlight: Duke TIP
Fourteen seventh graders qualify for the 7th Grade Talent Search sponsored by the Duke University Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP). Duke TIP's 7th Grade Talent Search is the largest program of its kind in the nation. Over 2 million students have participated in the Talent Search since its inception in 1980. Duke TIP's 7th Grade Talent Search identifies academically talented 7th graders based on standardized test scores or IQ tests achieved while attending elementary or middle school. Candidates are then invited to take the SAT or the ACT college entrance exams as 7th graders, which allows them greater insight into their academic abilities. We are very proud of our ‘Blazers for their academic achievement!

This week's highlight: All Things Haunted...
Seventh and eighth graders dressed for a ghoulish evening in the Lodge this weekend. They kicked up their heels and danced the night away to their favorite songs. From the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man to a few vampires - costumes were certainly creative! Stinson Hall, built in 1836, served as the perfect backdrop for a chilling, haunted house experience. Walking with trepidation through the creaky, old house in the pitch black night, student clung to one another as faces appeared in the windows and people (or ghosts) pounded on doors. Screams could be heard all over campus. Thanks to the teamwork of LEAD, it was a haunted night to remember!

This week's highlight: Go Green!
Woodlawn middle school students were going GREEN last week as they participated in the annual spirit week festivities leading up to Homecoming and Woodlawn Day! The spirit of sustainability was the theme of spirit week this year. Kicking off the week by blending in with nature, students were quite creative in dressing the part to make connections that would remind everyone of the importance of sustainability. Many students dressed as farmers and teachers as they honored the leaders of sustainability, and everyone got in the spirit of recycling clothes on Thrift Store Thursday! In true Woodlawn spirit, we saw a lot of green hair during spirit week, and I can’t think of a better reminder to go green and think about sustainability. With our fifth graders leading our recycling efforts on campus, our K-8 students tending their plentiful gardens, and our commitment to using recycled art materials, we tend to GO GREEN around Woodlawn in more than one way!
