Students and teachers from across the school come together annually for an enchanting afternoon of walking, skipping, sprinting, talking, and hanging out. It's a fundraiser benefiting financial aid. This year's goal is $75,000!
Catlin Gabel and OES juniors and their parents are invited to an evening with 20 college admissions representatives from across the nation. Our guest admission experts will guide small groups of students and parents through a mock admission application consideration. This illuminating exercise will be followed by a college fair.
A panel of experts, including a neurosurgeon, circuit court judge, counselor, and law enforcement official, will talk about the consequences of teen drug and alcohol use. We will send their bios soon.
The expectation is that every student and at least one parent attend the event. We are rarely this insistent about participation, but there is irrefutable evidence that parents are the number one influence on their children’s behavior with respect to drugs and alcohol.
Refreshments will be served at 6 p.m. The program begins at 6:30 p.m.
Catlin Gabel's athletics and college counseling departments are pleased to co-sponsor a college athletics information evening. Students and parents who are curious about participation in college-level varsity athletics are encouraged to attend. Our speakers include athletic director Sandy Luu senior associate athletics director at University of Portland Karen Peters.
Sandy has worked at large and small high schools across the globe and has navigated the recruiting process with hundreds of students in almost every sport and at every NCAA and NAIA divisional level.
Karen is in her fourth year at UP and previously spent ten years at Stanford University, where she completed her tenure as assistant director of athletics for eligibility and recruiting.
Students and families will learn about the different college athletic divisions, how to tell what level of athletic competition is most appropriate for each student's priorities and talents, NCAA rules and regulations, and how to communicate with and interpret messages from college coaches.
College counselors will also be on hand to talk about how athletic recruiting fits into a good college search. While most college counseling programs are targeted toward juniors and seniors, we encourage 9th and 10th grade athletes and their families to join us for this program, as the athletic recruitment process can begin early for some students.
Collaborate, code, and create!
All students, parents, and siblings are welcome and encouraged to attend. Pizza included!
The PFA invites you to join other Catlin Gabel families, students, and staff for an evening of innovative collaboration where you take center stage as a digital creator. Learn about coding applications that developers use, and then build an application or game of your own. Stay until 8 p.m. and hear from students about their experiences on the digital frontier.
Teachers and parents will present during an introductory session from 5 to 6 p.m. Then we will grab pizza before breaking into groups to explore your choice of topics from beginning coding to web programming, Android phone programming, and processing.
Thank you to the evening’s volunteer instructors and presenters: parents Matthew Galaher, Adrienne Hill, Tim Rayle, and Suresh Srinivas; teachers Meredith Goddard and Rob van Nood; and students Soha Ahmed, Andrew Hill, Anaga Srinivas, Lukas Stracovsky, Roy Stracovsky, and Iman Wahle.
Please bring a laptop (PC or MAC with WiFi), tablet, or smart (Android or Apple) phone for your family. The school will have loaners on hand for those who need them.
RSVP here to ensure that we have enough pizza for everyone.
