CASA Food Drive Ends Tomorrow, May 10

May 9, 2017

The Concord Academy Students in Action club (CASA) is hosting the Grand Grocery Challenge until tomorrow. The Grand Grocery Challenge is a food drive in which our goal is to raise 1,000 food items for Open Table, a food pantry with locations in Concord and Maynard that serves around 300 guests a week. We’re hoping for as many students as possible to participate by bringing in nonperishable food, toiletries, and household items, such as toilet paper, paper towels, dishwashing and laundry detergent, reusable shopping bags, diapers, and baby wipes. The class that brings in the most items will receive an ice cream party. We would greatly appreciate if parents could remind their children to look through their pantry and find a few items to donate. Thank you!

Senior Privileges for Boarders

April 11, 2017

As the seniors start transitioning towards life beyond Concord Academy, we offer certain privileges to our senior boarders that allow them more flexibility. Starting this week, seniors who are in good standing as boarders, have no current warning grades, and no work jobs, are awarded these Senior Privileges, which they can utilize for the remainder of the year assuming they remain “in good standing.” If you have any questions or concerns about these privileges, please connect with Sally Zimmerli or Annie Bailey.

Concord Academy Formal on April 29

April 11, 2017

This year’s Formal will take place at the Hilton Woburn on Saturday, April 29. Students, accompanied by CA chaperones, will enjoy an evening of dining and dancing from 6:00 to 11:00 p.m. The tradition of the Formal at Concord Academy is that it is a gala event open to students in all grades. A student need not have a date in order to attend, and more often than not our students attend on their own or with a group of CA friends. In those instances where a CA student would like to invite a guest who does not attend CA, we ask that parents call one of us to talk about the school’s expectations. These conversations must take place no later than Monday, April 24. Because it is the school’s desire to avoid the potential hazards so often associated with high school “proms,” we ask that you read the more detailed guidelines included in this article.
