Spring Has Sprung

March 28, 2019

Happy Spring!

We weathered the winter together and now the change of seasons is all around us...in the new buds, songs of the birds, even in the breeze. As you enjoy the added sunshine, keep forging ahead as we work through the second half of the school year, because June will be here before we know it!


Don't forget, tonight is our annual Red and White Night, where the Heroes (Red) and the Villains (White) go head to head in an evening of friendly (but fierce) competition!

Annnnddd They're Off!

Spring sports are officially underway! Enjoy some sunshine and catch some action this season...cheer on your fellow Cardinals as they hit the turf, fields, courts, and greens playing lacrosse, golf, track, tennis, baseball, and softball.


Congratulations to our boys' varsity lacrosse team, who won their season opener yesterday with a 10-6 victory over Northern Burlington! Sophomore goalie Dylan Morris had 11 saves and was anchored by a suffocating team defensive effort. The offense was led by the dynamic duo of Alex Everman and Justin Krisak, who accounted for all 10 Cardinal goals!
