Seniors plan grade-wide sleepover

In seventh grade, students participate in a grade-wide lock-in, in which they watch movies, play games and sleep on the floor. Channeling the spirit and camaraderie of the event, the senior class plans on hosting a similar event on Feb. 16. The students will spend the night in the Hicks Meeting Room along with the chaperones composed of various senior advisers. According to Form IV President, Malini Naidu, the seniors discussed this idea at the end of junior year and decided to move forward with the event in order to provide “bonding activities that would be both meaningful and fun.”

For her third consecutive year, Ji defeated her eight opponents in three rounds of questions about neuroscience. As the first place winner in the competition, Ji advanced to the national competition at the University of Maryland from March 13 to 19, where she previously placed 15th out of 52 competitors in 2016.
