Congratulations to sophomore Marianna Branch, who was recently named WLTZ Scholar Athlete of the Week! Marianna is a talented multi-sport athlete who is a leader on any team she’s a part of – and she’s only a sophomore. Not to mention she’s an academic powerhouse and one of the sweetest girls you will ever meet. (Full disclosure, I am one of her biggest fans!) Unfortunately, Marianna suffered a season ending injury a few weeks ago, but the fact that she was still awarded this honor speaks volumes about her character […]

Upper School technology teacher and guidance counselor, Jacob Crowder, was our emcee and he took his duties very seriously! We also had a special guest show up in carpool later that morning […]
