  • All-School Chapel

    St. John's students, faculty, and coaches gathered in Liu Court this morning for the All-School chapel service. It was a colorful crowd with attendees sporting their house t-shirts: Chidsey, Claremont, Hoodwink, Mulligan, Taub, and Winston. The MS and US bands combined to perform "Clocks" by Coldplay. Aftewards, the MS strings ensemble performed "Game of Thrones" by Ramin Djawadi. The US strings performed "Traveling" by Michael Kimber. 

    The address was given by Head of Middle School Philip Cannon, who spoke about the power of asking a simple question: What can I do to help? He told students that it costs literally nothing to help others, and reminded them that there will come a day when they will be the ones asking for help. After Mr. Cannon spoke, choir groups from LS, MS, and US combined to perform "Look at the World" by John Rutter. 

    At the end of the service, the six members of Team Hyperlift were asked to stand as the crowd gave them a round of applause. The team's faculty sponsor, Franco Posa, congratulated the team for their hard work and success in the Hyperloop competition. Having members of the entire SJS campus come together made it a special start to the school day.
