Academy community celebrates with winter activities


On Jan. 23, the senior class officers organized three winter activities for the Academy community in preparation for this week’s Winter Ball on Jan. 31. To start the Friday night off, the boys varsity basketball team played the Carrie Tingley Hospital Foundation’s Wheel Runners in a fundraiser game of wheelchair basketball. Following the game were students skits featuring performances from winter and spring sports teams as well as on campus clubs. Afterwards, a performance by the jazz band and a roaring bonfire with s’mores and snacks finished the night.

Winter Ball is Jan. 31 from 8-12 p.m. in the Senior Commons. The dance is for students in the 10-12 Division.
