Last Friday's state cross-country meet was a wet and sloppy "mud run" in the midst of Tropical Depression Willa. But, in CA style, our boys and girls battled through the conditions and posted outstanding runs and results.
The boys finished 3rd overall behind Providence Day who edged Durham Academy by 1 point. The girls, squaring off against TISAC rival Durham Academy, earned runners-up.
With more than 100 runners competing in both the boys and girls races, four CA boys and girls earned all-state honors in the sloppy conditions in Hendersonville. Congratulations to Kenny Eheman (6th-boys), Luke Johnson (7th-boys), Keely Murphy (6th-girls), and Lia Lathan (10th-girls)

On Friday, October 26, 7th-grade students attended the International Festival of Raleigh. They explored various cultural booths, speaking with people from 36 countries about this year's theme: celebrations around the world.
Students enjoyed a world bazaar and a delicious international café featuring 31 different cuisines. They interacted with people from around the world and journaled their experiences by completing a scavenger hunt with their advisory group. Many had the opportunity to enjoy a performance by Ed Stephenson & Flamenco Dance, an international dance performance, while others witnessed parts of a Naturalization Ceremony with 200 candidates from 40 different countries.
On their return, students worked in their advisory groups to create and present a reflection poster of what they had learned. Perhaps Mr. Haas' advisory summed it up best: "The International Festival is The Best-Ival."
What an engaging opportunity to stretch boundaries and experience something new—a world of fun and connections to discover in our very own backyard!
Three Cary Academy chorus students earned one of the coveted spots in the North Carolina Honors Choirs this year. The spots are highly competitive among the strongest choral musicians in the state and require performing a difficult piece of choral repertoire and sight singing an excerpt that they have one minute to learn.
Eighth-grade chorus student, Koen Chao, will be representing Cary Academy as a Bass in the NC Middle School Honors Chorus.
Sophomores Vibhav Nandagiri, Tenor 2, and Brandon Yi, Bass 1, will be representing Cary Academy in the NC High School Honors Chorus.
The event is held in Winston Salem over the weekend of November 10 and 11 in conjunction with the North Carolina Music Educators Association and culminates in a concert that is free to the public at the Stevens Center in downtown Winston Salem. The Middle School concert is at 1:30pm and the High School concert is at 3:00pm on Sunday, November 11, 2018.
