Many of our students enthusiastically embraced the initiative to help end car idling on campus and beyond. They produced a myriad of imaginative and carefully rendered designs. There were so many creative ideas, well-crafted imagery, and powerful statements that the judges, Mr. Largay and Ms. McQuilton, chose one winner from lower school and one from middle school.

We are happy to announce that the designs created by third grader Frances Meredith (top image) and eighth grader Kamila Ruiz (bottom image) were chosen as the winners. Every student and faculty member will receive a magnet soon. Thank you to all the wonderful artists and environmentalists out there; well done!
