Red-Blue Team Captains!
Student leadership on the Upper Campus takes many forms, with opportunities ranging from community service, to academic project management, to the performance stage, and the athletic fields. Today, one of two major elections was held to fill the roles of the Red and Blue team captains. The Red and Blue team elections celebrate the two teams that Upper Campus students and families are assigned to when they arrive on campus, wherein students earn points for their teams through periodic contests at campus assemblies, recognition of positive behavior and, ultimately, Field Day in the spring during which teams compete for points in a range of athletic events.
The election season features a lead up of several weeks of colorful signs and slogans around the Upper Campus and culminates in a performance in the Upper Campus Playhouse where students make their pitch to their peers in a lively series of songs, dances, and performance. The captains elected for the Red Team were Thomas Tenney, Georgia McLanahan, and Natalie Harrington; and for the Blue Team, Cian McGillicuddy and Cammy Lacey. Congratulations are in order for all the students involved, for extending themselves, for supporting each other, and for a spirited fall election season.
