A Day of Service on Campus

Our second Alumni Service Day on Friday, October 21st was a huge success! Many thanks to our Alumni Advisory Council (AAC) for putting this event together. We had over 20 alumni volunteer to pack sandwiches with the elementary, assemble hygiene kits with the junior high and sort clothing with the high school. The Gateway Center was positively overwhelmed with the donations and is grateful to the Paideia community!


Alumni STEMinar with Dave Fergemann

A positive post-pandemic trick we have learned is bringing alumni back to visit campus virtually! Dave Fergemann recently held a STEMinar with Jenny Middleton '06 titled Reading the Ocean's Diary: Unlocking the climate secrets recorded in deep-sea sediment. Dave's robotics class got a visit from Max Justicz '13 to talk about his startup, Charge Robotics, which is building giant robots to build solar farms. Way to go Pythons!

World Games 2022

During the summer two Paideia alumni participated in the World Games and emerged as champions. Grant Lindsley '07 and Chris Kocher '10 now hold two world games titles in Ultimate Frisbee, and our science teacher and junior varsity and varsity coach Miranda Knowles '00 became the first person to win as a player ('05) and coach ('22). Way to go Pythons!
