As I have said before, this is the year of lots of lasts. I sang my last song on keck stage during the winter musical Into the Woods. I took my last set of high school finals ever. I lead my first and last sophomore wilderness expedition and I have officially begun my last trimester at Stevenson.
These past two years I have gotten the change to have the same teacher for Spanish, Senora Allison. She is so animated and has found ways to make learning a language a lot more enjoyable. This year I am taking AP Spanish 4, and were tasked with the challenge of reading a full Latin American Novel. We read A Chronicle of a Death Foretold by Nobel Prize Winning Author Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on the things we are most grateful for. This year I want to look back on a once in a lifetime opportunity that I was given this summer.
Being a senior, I have been dealing with a lot of “lasts”. This will be my last blog post about my time as a member of the Stevenson Girls Water Polo team.
In the 2016 Rio Olympics, the Team USA fought against Australia for the gold medal in Women's Water Polo. This summer Stevenson was lucky enough to host both teams for an exhibition rematch in our very own pirate pool.
As a rising senior, I am given the opportunity to apply for numerous leadership positions on campus. A major aspect of the Stevenson community is the large role student leaders play is a day to day life.
This spring I have been rehearsing for a play titled While the Lights Were Out. This show is a farcical murder mystery set at a British estate in 1980's Bermuda. This show was full of murder, a bloody dagger, bad hairdos and an unexpected intruder.
Hi! I'm Tess, a rising senior, excited to start to my twelfth and final year with Stevenson School. I have been so lucky to be a part of the theater program here at
My experience at Stevenson has been full of surprises – I never thought I would be a part of the water polo team, nor did I think I would fall in love with backpacking and the outdoors. I know school requires a lot of hard work, but with a supportive community, I know someone will be there to pick me up if I fall.
