The ROAR! Week of 10/5

The+ROAR%21+Week+of+10%2F5

Welcome to the school year everyone! I’m glad that we’re all together, but I still cannot forget the difficulty of the last two years. With social distancing, masked faces, and a feeling of coldness and isolation still alive in our memories, one finds it hard to remember a time of warmth and excitement, but now it seems the opposite. The Mount is abuzz with anticipation as things begin to slowly get back to normal, and there is much cause for celebration. 

Mount sports has done tremendously well, the fall drama has been cast, choir and dance teams have begun rehearsal, and the school community has seen some changes.  

We have welcomed a number of new faces into the administration and faculty, including interim Head of School Mr. MacDonald, Campus Minister Dr. Hampton, and Spanish teachers Mr. Castrillon and Ms. Smith, to name a few. If you’re interested in learning more about these new members of our community, keep an eye out for profiles of them on the Argosy website.  In fact, the Argosy has changed a bit too.

Nothing too serious, but we do plan to update the Argosy and get the news out to a bit more people. We will be growing beyond just a newspaper into an entertainment and media website, focused on providing the Mount with community and global news, along with some interesting podcasts, series, and of course, articles. 

Yes, much has changed at the Mount but the general feeling of community and family has always stayed the same. It’s odd to say but I think that, if anything, the pandemic has only reinvigorated our community, and we are stronger now than we were before. 

If you have the time, check out this article about this fall’s events, by staff writer Gianna Mangilli, and take a quick adventure with the paper cranes strung around school, courtesy of staff writer Averi Wurst, watch out for some posts about the Drama, a special profile on Sister Peggy Ann Clinton who just celebrated 40 years in the community, and a profile on Sister Geraldine, a Dominican sister who just celebrated her centennial birthday.

So stay tuned, there’s much to be excited about, but until next time, keep your mask above your nose!
