High School: Parent Night and Winterim Information

August 26, 2021 Upper School News

Dear High School Parents and Students,

We have had a bit of an adjustment this week coming off of the great time at Camp Ben Lippen and returning to our first full week of classes.  The students have adjusted with ease returning to our school schedule and establishing routines that they will follow throughout the rest of this year.  This week also allowed us to return to Shortess Chapel for our very first chapel of the school year with a message from Mr. Fajardo, our Head of School.

As we are getting fully settled in, I wanted to send out a few reminders and updates.

  • This coming Tuesday (August 31) we will be hosting the High School Parent Night from 6:00 – 8:20PM. Parent’s Night will begin in the gym with a brief assembly and then parents will be released to follow their student’s academic schedule and hear from their teachers.  Before Parent Night, we will be hosting a Winterim Fair from 5:00 – 5:45PM in the gym for parents to meet Winterim advisors and learn more about this year’s Winterim opportunities.  Acorn Coffee will be open throughout the night for parents to purchase a coffee, shake, or smoothie.

  • Speaking of Winterims,  please find attached updated information about Winterims and the choices we will be offering.  The Winterim Fair this coming Tuesday will be an excellent opportunity to ask any questions you might have about the overall Winterim Program or specific Winterim choices.  Winterim sign-ups will be the week of September 6th.  Seniors will sign-up on Tuesday, September 7th, Juniors on Wednesday, September 8th, Sophomores on Thursday, September 9th, and Freshmen on Friday, September 10th.  We will announce Winterim placement the following week.

  • Reminder to all student drivers, Ben Lippen students are to park in their assigned Ben Lippen Parking lot.  If you do not have a parking decal please see Mrs. Lambert.  Please do not park at CIU.  If you are parked at CIU and do not have the appropriate parking decal for their lot, you will be ticketed by CIU security.  The CIU lots are for CIU professors/staff and students.

  • Finally, if you would like to see the full recap video that was created for Camp Ben Lippen at Carolina Point please find the link below.
