In the early hours of May 25th, Mrs. Johnson and the Class of 2021 embarked on their service trip. A few were bright eyed and wide awake (Fiona) but most were only too happy to board the plane and get back to the serious buisness of sleeping. Senior Gio Alcime handled boarding for his first ever flight like a pro while his seat mate Emmanuel Jacques tried to finesse Mrs. Johnson out of her exit row seat. His attempt was unsuccessful. 😉
To celebrate a strong finish for the 2020-2021 Chemistry Class, students not chillin' up in Acadia with the DMBZ used their chemical prowess to create some 🎶sweeeeet [combuuuuuuustion]🎵. After capturing with a balloon the hydrogen gas produced from a single replacement reaction between an acid and some aluminum foil, students lit the balloon on fire. The reaction was over in the blink of an eye, much like this school year has felt!

Last week, we celebrated the week we wait for all year long--Spirit Week. This is the dress down week, when we finally get to ditch our uniforms! Monday was Monochromatic Monday, where we were to dress in one color but variations of shades (although most people wore black). Tuesday was Teacher Tuesday and we dressed as our favorite teacher (or did we?). Some of the teachers even dressed up as coworkers. Meanwhile, there were tons of clones of Mrs. Dayen walking the halls! Wednesday was Wishful Wednesday, where we dressed like a time to which we wish we could return. Mrs. Johnson dressed up as a child to represent her own childhood but in her words, “I would never really wish to go back to a time before I had a certain Mr. Dustin Johnson in my life.” Thursday was Trends Thursday, where we dressed in as many 2021 trends as possible (some people were in pajamas, and yeah, this did include me). Friday was Fandom Friday, where we dressed in our favorite merchandise. Sports teams and TV characters were well represented by followers.

The basketball season has coming to an end. The players and coaches have had a great season and are already looking forward to next year. We are thankful basketball could still happen even with COVID-19. The seniors from the team were honored and the complete teams are featured in the photos below.
