As the seniors leave home to go as far away

as Seattle, Washington to pursue a higher education, the juniors, sophomores, and freshman should also expect some major changes coming to the Upper School in the 2014-2015 school year. Although not learning how to do laundry, manage time, and get to know (and possibly deal with) roommates, continuing Ravens will face further adapted CCL lessons, the introduction of grade level Deans of Students, a Community Service Panel, and a new college counsellor. New developments are also just around the corner for underclassmen who will reap the benefits of the ISM (Independent School Management) scheduling analysis and possible changes to the current 8 period day as well as SAT re-design. Before you take a much deserved break over the summer, be sure to check out what Fall 2014 will look like in August or at October’s Homecoming:

New College Co-Director Hired Emi Myers I

Editor

n the 2014-2015 school year, the Upper School college counselling office will grow by one. Sean Kennedy, former Director of the Upper School at Forsyth Country Day School, will be advising one third of the juniors in their quest for college next year. Kennedy attended high school at Chadwick School in Palos Verdes, California. While keeping up with rigorous academic pursuits, Kennedy also played numerous varsity sports. Prior to becoming the Director of the Upper School at Forsyth Country Day, Kennedy spent 12 years as a college counsellor at independent schools. His distinguished background also includes 2 years as a freshman application reviewer at the University of California, Los Angeles. This priceless insight into the

workings of the college admissions process will benefit Ravenscroft students as they manage their college application process. Kennedy came to visit the Ravenscroft Upper School in April to talk with rising seniors in the Jones Theatre about his history in college counselling and was available all morning in the college counselling office to talk with any students that wanted to stop by with questions. As we are quickly approaching the summer, Kennedy advises students to “visit colleges when you can. Even if it is just sort of wayward driving down to place x or place y with a college along the way that’s not one that you think you’ll attend.” He also stresses the importance of keeping up with summer reading. Juniors in particular can start reworking essays from their junior year or starting from scratch to get a

Photo provided by Sean Kennedy head start on the application process that can “sometimes feel like an additional course” in the fall of 2014 according to Kennedy. All juniors that have been switched from Angela Connor and Bill Pruden to Kennedy’s advising

have already received an email regarding the change. Kennedy will begin working at Ravenscroft this summer by meeting with parents and students for the college planning conference.

Ramsden pointed out, the failure of the project thus far embodies some of the same qualities it is trying to teach. During one of the first presentations of this program to members of the Class of 2015, Ramsden highlighted the key point that students need to learn how to fail in order to learn how to recover from that misstep. Ramsden strives to exemplify the importance of resilience as she shared that the everyone makes mistakes and the important part in this process is what happens after the mistake. “Success isn’t a straight line, but a curvy scribble,” Ramsden explained as she projected a graphic representation of this idea on the large screen as she went through her presentation. To further exemplify her point, she added the following quote

take full responsibility for what didn’t go well, something didn’t work but we can learn from it,” stated Colleen Ramsden, Assistant Head of School for Academic Affairs, as she began the meeting with the juniors in the Jones Theatre on Thursday, March 27th. She clarified that students WILL be credited with 10 hours of community service for this project along with 10 hours of service for their assistance with voter registration drive led by Bill Pruden, Director of Civic Engagement, upon return from the Junior Mountain Trip. Ramsden acknowledged the weaknesses of the “Change Your World Project” regarding communication and timing, but as

by General George S. Patton:

“I don’t measure a man’s success by how high he climbs but how high he bounces when he hits bottom.”

She clearly believes that the initiative is bound to succeed in the future. Ramsden also addressed the hectic nature of junior year and Upper School life in general by explaining that the administration is aware of this issue and has hired a consulting group for assistance in creating a schedule that better suits the educational process. This, however, is a 2 year process. Meetings with a student council will begin in the coming weeks to start addressing the issue. Part of the problem with this project was that it was to be completed during the 9:35 Common Periods on

Tuesdays and Thursdays. It seems that there are many conflicting programs that campaign to fill this slot such as speakers, visiting authors, awards presentations, environmental speakers, chapels, and the list goes on and on. Pruden took over at this point to discuss some upcoming changes, chiefly regarding community service awarded to juniors for their participation in the voter registration drive. As in recent years, the junior class is to spend a day running a voter registration drive upon returning from the Junior Mountain Trip. In recent history, juniors have worked at the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina or worked to assist our maintenance staff with on-campus projects.

s the year comes to a close SGA has moved its focus to setting precedents for the years to come and finishing out the year strong. The annual kickball tournament in Sam’s name is coming up in May. Ravenscroft has vowed to host this kickball tournament every year to honor Sam Biderman, a previous student. Besides In Sam’s Name, we continue to donate to the American Cancer Society and have raised over $3000 through various events such as Homecoming and the Badminton Tournament. Our biggest accomplishment this past month was The Independent Schools Conference. Ravenscroft hosted Charlotte Latin and Cary Academy on March 14th. Chris Ward led us in several CCL exercises that helped us learn how to work together. We then held a group discussion to talk about what has and what hasn’t been successful in our SGAs. This discussion was extremely instrumental in helping us expand our scope as a government and also find out about new and exciting programs. For example, we plan to institute a penny drive next month that we learned about from Charlotte Latin. Most importantly from this discussion we learned that our SGA is very connected to the administration at Ravenscroft and we hope to continue this strong relationship. In the afternoon, an ex-president of the Upper School at Ravenscroft came and spoke about the leadership skills SGA provided him. We hope to keep in contact with these schools and further the discussion. Elections were held on April 9th and the members prepare to pass the torch to next year.

lavery. It is something students learn about in textbooks and history lessons in which millions of Africans were forced into brutal servitude all over the world but, what most people don’t know is that slavery continues to exist today. On Monday, March 31, 2014, 10 female upper school students attended the North Carolina Council for Women’s Living History Symposium, hosted at Southeast Raleigh Magnet High School. The symposium featured 2 keynote speakers, Holly Austin Smith, a sex trafficking survivor and author, and Kenneth B. Morris, Jr, a descendant of both Booker T. Washington and Frederick Douglass who now advocates against modern day slavery. Holly Smith started her talk on the dangers of trafficking with a personal story of her own forced prostitution in Atlantic City, NJ. She met her kidnapper/pimp, Greg, at the mall with friends while her obvious insecurity made her a perfect target for a predatory figure. After exchanging phone numbers, Smith began to converse regularly with the pimp on her private phone line in her room. After several weeks, Greg convinced her to run away from home in suburban New Jersey and she ended up in Atlantic City, forced into prostitution. She was 14 years old. Today, Smith travels in the United States to teach people about the warning signs of kidnapping and trafficking. Her book, Walking Prey, tells her entire story from running away to being arrested in Atlantic City and finally returning home to her parents. One of her main messages is to spread awareness about how victims should be treated. Much like cases of rape, Smith believes that people continue to blame the victim for a situation that was beyond their control. The second featured keynote speaker had a different relationship to slavery altogether. Instead of being a victim of slavery, Morris is three generations removed from the enslavement of his great great great grandparents, Frederick Douglass and Booker T. Washington. Both Douglass and Washington were born into slavery and escaped or were freed by the Emancipation Proclamation. After achieving his freedom, Douglass

was a relentless advocate for equal rights in the post-Civil War South and Washington started the first African American college, Tuskegee Institute. While first being overwhelmed with the legacy that preceded him, Morris felt inadequate and wholly unsure of how he could ever fill the shoes left behind for him until he read a feature in National Geographic magazine called “21st Century Slaves.” It was at this point that Morris realized the reality that slavery continues to exist in conservatively estimated numbers reaching to tens of thousands of individuals. Today, Morris travels the nation speaking to high school students to raise awareness about the existence of modern day slavery both in the United States and internationally. He has also developed a curriculum currently being implemented in New York City public schools called “History, Human Rights, and the Power of One.” This curriculum is targeted at adolescents because they are the primary victims of trafficking but also because they are the ones to carry forth change. When asked about what she learned from the symposium, Rachel Edwards, ‘16, said, “What I took most from the seminar was that traffickers target many of their victims by searching for people on social media who are openly bullied. They take advantage of the person’s vulnerability and see this as an opening to gaining their trust.” In the future, Edwards believes that “The most applicable way we can prevent sex trafficking and exploitation- just watching what we say out where everyone can see it. Nobody wants to see such a horrible situation happen to anyone they know, and we can do our part to protect our community.”

Fast Facts About Human Trafficking: - North Carolina has consistently ranked among the top 10 states nationwide for frequency of human trafficking incidents - There were 3,445 possible cases of human trafficking nationwide in 2012 - 63.8% of all human trafficking cases are related to prostution and sex slavery - 21.8% of all human trafficking incidents are labor trafficking (forced labor or misleading contracts)

umors have begun circulating around the school that the French program is being phased out, and, due to the declining student interest in learning this language, French is, in fact, in danger of no longer being offered as a choice at Ravenscroft. Interest in learning French has been declining around the world for about three decades now. Head of World Language Department and French Instructor, Daniel Teitelbaum believes there are two primary reasons for this: 1. The cultural center of the French language, France, is seeing rough economic times that hinder its global presence, decreasing the advantage of learning French. 2. Other languages have surfaced in schools as options to students in America to replace French; most notably Mandarin. Mandarin is an increasingly important language to learn now that the emerging markets in Asia are booming. There is a perception that knowing Mandarin can greatly increase a person’s value in the workforce. When our school first offered Mandarin to students, 20 students enrolled in Level I. By just looking at the numbers, it was not looking good for French. Other languages like Latin and Spanish also maintained a large student enrollment. French, on the other hand, has not been able to maintain the numbers that the other World Languages have. “If we had 10 people that wanted to take French 1 each year, we would offer it; but we don’t. There is not enough excitement about the language, and it is sad,” says Teitelbaum, because such a beautiful language deserves respect and interest. This is a critical time in Ravenscroft’s history: Within the next three years the likelihood of the French program disappearing could increase, and bringing back a program is much more difficult than to save it before it is gone. It is not the school’s desire to lose this program when many other Triangle schools have flourishing French programs, but the number of enrolling students just does not present reasons to keep it. With French already gone in both the Lower and Middle Schools, a comeback in future years would be that much more difficult. “We plan to attract students, one by one, back to the program, by talking to parents and letting them know that French is still relevant,” says Teitelbaum about reviving the program at this point. It will be an uphill battle, but it is possible. The student body just needs to get involved to keep the program.

“I dont think the program should be cut, French is so important and it is the 3rd most spoken language in North Carolina. France is my favorite country and I want to minor in French so that I can persue an international career. I have taken it for 3 year, along with using Rossetta Stone on the side.Getting to use French in a french speaking country was interesting.” Abbie Green, ‘16

If you would like to be involved in rebuilding the excitment for the French program at Ravenscroft, please contact Monsieur Teitelbaum. (@dteitelbaum@ravenscroft.org)

Second Time’s a Charm

Eight Ravens Traveled to Africa During Spring Break Tate Replogle

W

STAFF WRITER

aking up at three in the morning to get to the airport by four on Friday, April 11th was not something I was looking forward to; however, when I got to the airport, it dawned on me that I was traveling to South Africa! The excitement of the adventure hit me suddenly even though this was my second trip to Africa. I was heading to a different part of the continent of Africa while reminiscing about the amazing adventure my first voyage had been. After more than 24 hours of travel, we finally landed in Livingstone, which is in the Southern Province of Zambia and until 2012 was the capital. As we checked into our lodge the friendly nature of those who welcomed us was overwhelming; with the exception an unexpected group of monkeys that chased us around a bit. On our first full day, we toured one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Victoria Falls. It is roughly twice the height of North America’s Niagara Falls. As we navigated the trail, the amazing waterfall was always in sight.  The sheer size was breathtaking. When viewing the falls, we witnessed not only a rainbow, but also a double rainbow. By the end of the tour we were completely drenched from the spray coming from the falls.  The spray from the falls typically rises to a height of over 1,300 feet, and sometimes even twice as high, and it is visible from up to 30 miles away. It was simply a majestic site to see. The next day, we went out driving on a narrow dirt path to get to the Siandunda School with nine suitcases filled with school supplies to be distributed to the students. These suitcases had been packed in Raleigh with the help of the organization

Pack for a Purpose. After an hour of weaving through country roads, we finally arrived at the remote school. There, we were greeted with a warm welcome as the whole village sang a lovely welcome song to us. Then, the celebration commenced. They all gathered around a tree while the elders spoke and greeted us with a traditional Zambian welcome. The locals also sang and danced to welcome us to their village. Every villager made his or her way up to us and shook each one of our hands following which we unpacked the donated items and distributed them. The children eagerly lined up and fought to look through the windows at all the new toys and school supplies. Children clutched new pencils and plush animals as they grinned from ear to ear. After the supplies were distributed, it was time for fun! We danced, kicked the soccer ball, played hand games, and had a fantastic time running around with all of the children. They loved to have their pictures taken and seeing their images on our phones. Many have never seen their own reflection since mirrors are few and far between. One cute eight-year-old girl stayed with me the whole time and hardly let go of my hand. She stole my heart, and I never wanted to leave her that day. We had, yet another, group celebration at the end of the day, but this time we all came together! The villagers sang and danced again only now they felt more comfortable with us as they did not hesitate to grab our hands invited a few of us to dance with them. Seniors Rachel Hianik, Jessie Lutz, and Kristen McCarthy were the first ones to be selected to dance in the middle of the circle with some of the villagers. When they headed back to their seats, David Kates, Director of International Education, was chosen to bust a move. When he sat back

down, I thought that it was over. But I was wrong. I saw one of the lady villagers go around our semicircle, and when she got to me, she held out her hand and I knew that I had to take it and go in the middle of the circle. Now, I am not the most outgoing and by no means a great dancer, and no one has ever called me a “let loose” type of person. It was very awkward trying to dance in front of everyone. I felt myself blushing with embarrassment many times until I set eyes on this little girl, she could not have been older than five, and she was making her way through the crowd of villagers to me. When she got to the middle of the circle, she took my hands and started to dance with me. I was so blessed to have her to dance with and I no longer felt I was the center of attention. I stopped worrying about looking silly for trying to dance. I was having so much fun that I barely noticed that everyone was getting up to dance as well; I was part of something bigger than myself. Leaving was so heartbreaking, I met so many wonderful people that I felt a connection with and had a hard time leaving them behind. With the Livingstone adventure behind us, we packed up to go yet on another plane to head to the capital city, Lusaka, to visit Kasisi Orphanage, and then we hopped onto another plane to Mfuwe. The plane was so small, and honestly, I was a little nervous flying on it. We went to a really nice lodge to eat lunch and saw a giraffe and an ostrich walking on the road - typical Zambia. We had the once in a lifetime experience of petting a domestic cheetah outside of the lodge. After having a group photo with the cheetah, we headed over to Kasisi Orphanage to tour and play with the kids. While on the tour, one of the nuns showed the special room that housed the HIV positive babies. It was one of the saddest sights that

I have ever seen. On a more positive note, we went into a courtyard area and played with the toddlers. When you sat down, they would plop down in your lap to play with you. A class of first graders came by and all they wanted to do was to hug you and to be picked up. One of the little boys was trying to jump up and climb into my arms so that he could be held. They all would ask me what my name was. After I told it to them, they would repeat it over and over again. They were all adorable, sweet, and the most well behaved kids that I have ever met. We left the orphanage a few backpacks full of supplies and then had to leave to catch our next plane to Mfuwe. We checked into the Marula

Lodge, where we would be staying the rest of the time in Zambia. At this lodge, we saw all kinds of animals walking around and we had to be informed about what to do and what not to do in order to coexist with the wild animals that roam around freely. From our room, Rachel Hianik, ‘14, Sophie El-Gamal ‘17, Rebecca Powell, ‘14, Kristen McCarthy, ‘14, and Jessie Lutz, ‘14, had the wonderful experience of watching a hippo eating at night outside of our window. The next two days, we went to the nearby school, Uyoba School, to help teach English to the third and fourth graders. We brought them school supplies as well and props to act out the book “The Cat in the Hat” by Dr. Seuss. All of the kids had a blast with the play that we put on. They especially loved when Sophie and Kristen played the roles as “Thing One and Thing Two.” My favorite part was playing with the kids after their English lesson was over. They would all try to grab our hands, fingers, or arms to be with us. We learned some of their games, and we taught them some of ours, like “Duck Duck Goose.” On the last leg of the trip, we all woke up at five o’clock in the morning to head out for a safari ride. We rode in an open range rover with three high rows of seats. We saw so many cool animals, like zebras, warthogs, fascinating birds, crocodiles, monkeys, impalas, and a water buck. Though, I have to say that the nighttime safari ride was the best. On that ride, we saw elephants, giraffes, hippos, the rare wild dog, lion cubs, and a mother leopard and her two cubs. There were a few times when the animals were so close to the vehicle that it seemed like if you put your hand out then you would be able to touch that animal. Looking at the stars from the Range Rover at night was breathtaking. There were so many in the sky, not like what you see in the city. It was eventually time for us to leave and head back over to the states. I was not looking forward to the long plane ride back, and I did not want to leave. Both of the lodges were accommodating complete with mosquito nets and surprisingly, we actually had modern bathrooms. All the people were so nice and I felt so safe there. This whole experience was amazing and I will never forget it.

ITB Or Nahhh!!! Living “Inside the Beltline” is not just about a zip code; It’s an inside scoop on a whole new world. It’s about a brotherhood that will forever have a close bond until the grave.

Jonathan Marlowe Staff Writer

oming in as a new student to Ravenscroft, I felt a lot like a deer in the path of Bryant Vucich’s big, red truck right before being flung up onto the windshield and plummeting to an untimely, horrific death. Ravenscroft was, and still is, a new feeling that challenges me both academically and socially to strive to a new level. To add to my confusion as I roamed throughout the hallways, I would always hear the terms “OTB” or “ITB,” and these acronyms would fill my ears all day long. For almost the entire first semester, I was under the assumption that these terms might represent a new young singing group or the hottest album out - or something. Thinking like a old man, I Finally came to the conclusion that it was based upon where you live. Speaking for myself, since I am always in the mix of daily conversations, I learned a lot here at the ‘Croft quickly. For an example, “ITB,” stands for “Inside the Beltline,” and “OTB” stands for “Outside the Beltline.” These terms are not only used in the Ravenscroft community, but throughout the Triangle. As a memeber of the Ravenscroft community, you don’t really know which person is apart of which group because “OTBs” and “ITBs” always hang out together at school. It doesn’t matter what group you are in, because you won’t get treated differently.

My new friend David Reynolds, ‘15, explained that there is also an “ITB Lifestyle,” which consists of hanging out every weekend with the other ITB friends to play ball, followed by eating out at the Carolina Country Club in the middle of beautiful downtown Raleigh. The main question I had as a ‘Croft newby, was, What one thing makes “ITB” so special? “We do not live out in the middle of nowhere. Everything we want or need is less than five minutes away,” says Reynolds. There are a few notorious leaders of the ITB pack here on campus and they are, David Reynolds, ‘15, Wes Stroud, ‘15, and McLean “The Bucket Getter” Voekel, ‘15, and they are more like brothers than simply neighbors. Since I am “OTB,” I and a few of my friends have had the chance to live the “ITB” lifestyle for a day or two, and it’s got nothing on the “OTB” lifestyle. The only advantage that the “ITB” has over us is that majority of their friends live only five minutes away. The terms “ITB” and “OTB” are not taken very seriously in the ‘Croft community, because we all hangout together every other weekend. But, it’s good to have a title and something to stand by; something for you to be identified with.

SAT CHANGING THE

ollege applications. An assembly of masses of information, essays, high school transcripts, application fees, and three little letters, the SAT. Those three little letters stand for “Scholastic Aptitude Test” which might as well be called the “Stupid Aggravating Test” or better yet “The Biggest Waste of Three Hours and Forty-five Minutes on a Saturday Morning to Test Students on Knowledge They Neither Care About or Will Ever Use” however, the TBWTHFMSMTSKTNCAWEU is a bit too long. Fear not! There are changes on the way to make the test marginally less irrelevant and an equally poor indicator of potential success in higher education. The changes in the SAT were first mentioned by David Coleman who was appointed as President of the College Board last year. Since then College Board Vice President, Peter Kauffman, sent an email to all members of the college board in which he said “We will develop an assessment that mirrors the work that students will do in college so that they will practice the work they need to do to complete college.” According to FairTest, the national center for fair and open testing, the ACT surpassed the SAT in popularity in 2012 when 1,666,017 students took the ACT and 1,664, 479 took the SAT. Given the changes to make vocabulary more realistic and new emphasis on science and social studies, the College Board’s decision to revamp its test might be more to do with competition than with the success of students. The College Board, creator of the SAT, has already launched its website explaining the changes to the test that will be implemented by Spring 2016 (meaning it will only

begin to affect Freshmen and lower grades). According to the information listed on the page, the redesigned test will focus on 8 main areas that are supposed to stress “practicality” and “applied learning.” The redesigned test will also make the writing portion of the exam optional so as to be more economically and time friendly to students, however this is quite silly considering that most centers of higher education require the writing portions anyways. Even with these changes, there continues to be opposition to the idea of standardized testing as a whole. Howard Gardner, a professor of education at Harvard college, suggests that a test be created to gauge students’ mastery of disciplinary modes of thinking in the historical, scientific, mathematical, and artistic contexts. This idea is thoroughly explained in his book called The Disciplined Mind. Gardner believes that the Advanced Placement examinations do a much better job at measuring intelligence and mastery of content on a consistent scale than the “undisciplined” SAT. Another point of contention with all standardized testing is the idea that success on the examinations is determined more by socioeconomic status rather than actual intelligence. This is fully captured inthe College Board’s tagline for this project: “A future determined by merit, not money.” Coleman and Salman Khan, founder and Executive Director of Khan Academy, have agreed that the test is corrupt in how it caters to tutored students. To combat the inconsistencies in test preparation at the individual level, the College Board will be teaming up with the online free tutoring site, Khan Academy, to provide extensive virtual content to help prepare for the new SAT for free. A noble cause indeed but the

tutoring industry will likely continue to help bolster the scores of America’s wealthy while those without equivalent access to resources will need to gain access to a computer and internet to use the online tutoring videos on their own. Looking forward, many students are questioning how the redesigned test will affect college admissions. Will the added science and humanities sections make SAT IIs more optional? How are colleges reacting to changes? The answers to these questions have yet to be addressed by any higher educational institution. Maybe the redesign will challenge colleges and universities to question the importance of standardized testing as Wake Forest University did in 2008 when applicants for the 2009-2010 applying high school seniors were not required to submit scores. In our highly unprofessional opinion, standardized testing should be optional. It targets certain skills that aren’t necessarily required for collegiate success. By giving applicants the option to submit their scores allows students to reflect on their application hollistically, be self critical, and self aware. If those previously mentioned qualities sound familiar, you are not wrong. Those are ideas borrowed from the CCL character tree. These qualities that are highly valued by some of the most influencial CEOs in the business world further strengthening the argument for optional test scores. But no one is asking us and the changes continue to hurry our way so...

Good luck class of 2017!

enture back this time a year ago and I was in the midst of a crisis. Not a mid-life crisis, not even a quarterlife crisis. The kind that doesn’t involve buying a red Ferrari after getting a divorce. What faced me was exams, choosing a university, leaving the safe lack of responsibility that you call high school and out into the real world. I could not understand why everyone was in such a rush to skip off into the sunset of student loans, making your own food, and sharing a bathroom with 16 members of your college’s rugby team. Was I just naive? Did I just need to grow up and be ‘realistic’? Well if that’s right, then I’m pretty darn glad that I decided to stay a child for another year. After having a ‘Stand By Me-Esque’ summer, involving watching a lot of Alan Watts videos (y Youtube it - you’ll thank me) and reading Kerouac’s ‘On The Road’, I decided that if this was the last opportunity I was going to get to do whatever I wanted for a whole year, then it would be a crime not to seize it. After hearing about a scholarship to travel to the USA, I applied and, after being interviewed by someone with an OBE (given by the Queen - we do drink tea with her, after all), I was told that I was going to North Carolina for 6 months. So 4,100 miles, 672 jokes about eating roadkill, 15 hours, 2 flights and one ‘opening the plane toilet door on an old Russian lady’ situation later, I arrived in Raleigh. When I first got here I was terrified. What if I had to eat my lunch in the bathroom? What if Regina George hated me? What if my host ‘mom’, Zoe Welsh, Head of Science Department, was a secret serial killer who had a long history of exchange students who had mysteriously disappeared? Well, this is still unconfirmed... Thankfully, Ravenscroft has been ‘super welcoming’ and my biggest challenges have merely involved trying not to say I’ll ring you later!, Where’s the bin? and That’s rubbish! as I have found these phrases have caused more than a few blank

stares. I’ve made friends that I know I’ll have for a long time to come. In many ways, Ravenscroft is a world away from my school in Liverpool. Established in 1708, The Liverpool Blue Coat School is older than the United States of America itself. Just one more stereotype away from Harry Potter, we wore uniform, called ourselves ‘prefects’, had a rowdy debating society, ate lunch at Laura Williamson, ‘14, the ‘chippy’ down the street poses with her new and ended our school year, Ravenscroft friend not with a graduation, but Rebecca Powell, ‘14, with a ‘pint’ at the local pub. prior to Prom. 4 months on and the the Photo provided by Laura differences between English Williamson and Southern American culture are already ingrained in my mind. I have become used to bald eagles, pick up trucks, Duck Dynasty, peanut butter, the nae nae, track meets and questionable southern fashion choices, though I don’t think I’ll ever get used to people asking “are you going to shag at prom?”. Apart from this, there are some similarities with back home. Students put a lot of effort into giving back to their community, people are just as addicted to netflix and everyone, thankfully, still appreciates Drake. Right now, I have about a month left in North Carolina and I do not want to leave. Coming here was definitely the best decision I’ve made in my life so far and I’m so grateful to Ravenscroft for having me. As well as this, if any of y’all are interested in travelling to the UK or Argentina on a year off, speak to Señor Kates or go online to https://www.esuus. org/esu/programs/secondary_school_exchange. I promise you, it will be one of the best experiences you’ll ever have.

I thought a fashion show would be fun and there was nothing else like it at Ravenscroft,” said Reali. Numerous local boutiques such as Gena Chandler, Bevello, Collared Greens, Fab’rik, Apricot Lane, Madison, Gigi’s Boutique, and Scout and Molly’s contributed their clothing and accessories to the fashion show and silent auction. “Grace Dorsett [‘16] and I were very excited. It was our first year doing it so it was a learning experience as well.” In order to further increase the number of breast cancer survivors, Reali believes that it is imperative to raise money through different fundraisers, and Ravenscroft was able to contribute on April 5th through Fashion for a Cause, or FFAC, a fashion show and silent

arch of Dimes is an organization founded in 1970 that raises money to “[support] programs in your community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies,” according to their website. Additionally, the March of Dimes races “[fund] research to find answers to the problems that threaten our babies.” Over the past 44 years, March of Dimes has raised 2.3 billion dollars to benefit the women and children that need their assistance. On April 26, the Triangle Walk for Babies event took place at Perimeter Park by RDU airport. Sixteen Ravenscroft students came out to the venue in order to help volunteer at the event. The students worked at the kid’s tent, and they helped children play games such as cornhole, color on coloring sheets, apply temporary tattoos, spray paint their hair with temporary dye, and paint their nails. Elise Thrash, who has been the Key Club sponsor for ten years, said that “[Key Club has] always worked with the walk, either walking in a group or manning the Kid’s Tent.” Before Thrash was in charge, the Head of the History Department, Mary Beth Immediata was the sponsor, who also helped run the Kid’s Tent at the annual March of Dimes Event. “Key Club International has 3 Major Emphasis Projects that [it] helps] with annually to help children,” which are the UNICEF Trick-Or-Treat boxes, the Swim-A-Thon for the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital at Duke, and last but not least, March of Dimes, March for Babies,” said Thrash. Originally, Thrash was worried that the turnout would be slim because it seems to always falls on Ravenscroft’s Prom date AND this year she was out of town. But on that Saturday morning, the coordinator of the event, Stacy Lyerly, who has worked with Ravenscroft’s club for 10 years, texted her while she was in Dallas: “Holy Volunteers Batman... you have the most ever this year! They are really being put to work!” Because of everyone’s hard work at the event and positive feedback, Thrash wanted to give a “special thanks to everyone who got up early on Saturday to head to Morrisville to help [Ravenscroft’s Key Club] raise money for educating women about healthy pregnancies to deliver healthy babies.”

Ravenscroft Team Raises $74,000 C

hildhood cancer is an ongoing battle that the St. Baldrick’s Foundation has been fighting since 1999. Every three minutes, a child somewhere in the world is diagnosed with some form of childhood cancer, and according to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, “worldwide, 175,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year. And in the U.S., more children die of childhood cancer than any other disease—more than AIDS, asthma, cystic fibrosis, congenital anomalies and diabetes combined.” Prior to the 1950s, almost every child diagnosed with cancer died. However, due to research developed since then, “85% of kids with the most common type of cancer will live.” Nevertheless, the fight is not over; progress and hope for curing the less common forms of cancer is limited. Luckily, St. Baldrick’s mission is to not only to “stand proudly bald beside” kids who have lost their hair as a result of chemotherapy, but also to “raise funds for lifesaving childhood cancer research.” Through their organization, they wish to strengthen the hope of kids battling cancer and to support the research needed for finding a cure. Ravenscroft School has supported this cause for quite some time, and innumerous Ravenscroft students over the years have contributed by volunteering at the events and/or shaving their heads. In fact, Robert Lippitt, ‘14, has led the event for five years. In 2010 and 2011, Ravenscroft had a St. Baldrick’s team that participated in an event at Napper Tandy’s. Since 2012, Ravenscroft students have hosted their own event at Saints & Scholars. Rebecca Qubain and Sarah Miller, two juniors who played major roles in the coordination of the 2014 St. Baldrick’s event, shared their opinions about this year’s participation as well as their experiences in the past three years. During her freshman year, Qubain got involved with St. Baldrick’s, when senior coordinator, Perry Dubow, was looking for volunteers help her. Ever since then, she “knew it was something [she] wanted to continue with throughout high school and even beyond.” Miller, on the other hand, remembers hearing about the Ravenscroft St. Baldrick’s group while in eighth grade and it was something she decided then to become involved with in the Upper School. Qubain recalled that her most memorable experience thus far was cutting her own hair for Pantene Beautiful Lengths and raising money during her freshman year. “I was still trying to find my place, and it gave me something to do to truly make a difference in the lives of others,” said Qubain. Similarly, Miller remembered having her hair cut in 2012 and wondering at that moment, just as they started tying it into small ponytails, “What am I doing?!” Nevertheless, she felt like “it was totally worth it.” She added that she was so glad she]could both raise money and donate her hair for a great cause. Even though Miller shared that “because of the rain forecast, we were all a little worried about having the event inside (since we have had it outside the past years),” and despite the “minor hiccups,” the event had a great turnout, and Ravenscroft raised over $74,000. “It’s always inspiring to see everyone come out to shave their head, cut their hair, or just watch! The event always proves to be fun in the end,” stated Miller.

Ravens, why did you participate? “I’ve been doing it since 7th grade, and I think it’s a great organization.” -Jake Isley, ‘14

“St. Baldrick’s is such a great cause because hair is such an easy thing to sacrifice to help so many.” -Payne Lubbers, ‘16

“I participated to show others that shaving your head can make a difference and can help raise money for childhood cancer.” -Keeton Glenn, ‘15

“I have friends and family who have suffered from cancer, so I wanted to help the cause.” -Sumana Goli, ‘15

When Senioritis Strikes... Liz Gulden &KAthryn Anne Robinson

Staff Writers

T

he fact that I’m writing this article is a miracle. I’m a fourth quarter senior. Do I have any motivation to actually try? No. I’m in college and, frankly my teachers should applaud me for even coming to school. This doesn’t just relate to me, though. I recently sent out a one question survey to all seniors regarding senioritis - 113 people - and 11 filled it out. To those eleven people, I applaud you. To be honest I wouldn’t have replied either.

Refusing to be one of those seniors who shanks their responsibilities and gets their

acceptance rescinded, I finally had motivation to work again. Not really though. I found this game called bubble shooter and it was my life-force. My GPA didn’t go up. The weeks went on and I grew tiresome of clicking little bubbles for hours on end, so I stopped. I looked at the floor, the walls, the underclassmen stressing about grades, and back at the floor. Boredom overwhelmed me and there was nothing to do besides the late work I had previously neglected. Yet, I didn’t do it. I physically can’t force myself to give any effort. To my teachers, I apologize. It’s out of character, but senioritis really changes a person. I’m not sure where that story was heading so let’s wrap this up.

A

t first, I thought I was capable of avoiding senioritis altogether. It was the first week of the second quarter, and despite having the same workload as the weeks beforehand, I suddenly had a lot more free time! I could nap, watch Netflix, stalk my future classmates on Facebook, and enjoy the last semester of my senior year. However, I still didn’t understand where the free time came from. When interim reports were released midway through the third quarter, I discovered that the sudden increase in time was directly correlated to a significant decrease in my GPA.

Until this year, I thought that senioritis was just some excuse for not getting work done, but it’s more like an invisible, inescapable force that keeps you from picking up a pencil or reading for an AP. I’ve tried to regain focus and work like I did during junior year, but nothing seems to help. I’m not myself anymore when it comes to academics, but I really don’t think it was something I could’ve avoided.

Study hall for seniors Daniel Schwabacher, Jimmy Tabet, and Robert Lippitt means phones out and zero productitivity.

You know you have senioritis when... “You’re answering this poll instead of studying for your test.” Chris Antonello, ‘14

“Just making yourself answer this survey question is a struggle.” Audrey Hammerstein, ‘14

“You don’t want to reply to this because you think it’ll take too much effort.”

“Your 4th quarter attendance so far is 34.9%”

Chase Johnson, ‘14

J

uniors, try, as much as you can, to get some work done senior year. If you think you have senioritis, make a desperate attempt to get back to old habits but don’t be alarmed if it doesn’t work. At some point, it will be too late. Sophomores, if you find yourself sacrificing your social life for schoolwork next year, you’re probably doing it right. Freshmen, sophomore year is a blur to me so I can’t help much there.

Seniors. I think we’re all ready to go, but it’ll be sad to leave it all behind. It’s been a good run. I can’t think of anything else to say, but I guess that’s just the senioritis kicking in again.

All Of The Prom-sibilities Promposals

Kathryn Anne Robinson & Anna Collawn Staff Writers

Prom Season has come and gone. Guys got creative and asked

girls to prom in cute ways and of course the school couldn’t let prom go by without putting in their two-cents. The school expressed their concern through an email sent by Peter Bogue, Head of Upper School. The faculty explained their hopes and wishes for the students to be careful before, during, and after prom. Everything went as planned and no one was hurt or injured following the night of prom. Some guys got very creative when asking their date to prom so here are a couple of the best promposals this year.

What Is Your Dream Prom Theme?

Connor “Fonz” Irey, ‘14

“Underwater would be awesome”

“Nascar! Duh!”

Tiger Harris, ‘15

PromPosal Mishaps: Prom-Blematic! C

hase Johnson, ‘14, popped the question by writing “PROM?” in senior Claire Fuscoe’s parking spot, but made the mistake of pulling her car back into the spot. He expected her to see it as she pulled out except that was not the case. No worries once she pulled out of the spot her friends hinted for her to look into the spot, and she said, “Yes!”

K

athryn Anne Robinson, ‘14, missed her promposal entirely. Humza Rizvi, ‘14, made a sign and placed it on an overpass that Robinson goes under everyday on her way to school. She received a text to look at the specific bridge, but she unfortunately did not receive the text message in time and passed it. This was no ones fault, just bad timing.

“1950s! I like the way they dressed and danced. The mens suits and hats were ”

“Hands down casino night”
