We are excited to announce that construction of the Sports Deck, which began on March 25, is moving along on schedule, including an important concrete pour last week. The four- to five-month timetable for completion of the Sports Deck, the final facilities project funded by the Campaign for St. Patrick's at Sixty, shows that this new and innovative setting for outdoor play will be ready for student use for the beginning of the 2019-2020 academic year. The 5,450-square-foot play surface is being built on a platform above the outdoor parking pad on the west end of the Gymnasium & Performance Center. It will provide a significant expansion of our outdoor facilities that will enhance opportunities for student play and skills development. The concrete pour represents a dramatic step forward for the project, as it completes the surface on which students will practice and play beginning next year.

The Wolfhounds competed well during the spring season, with the boys and girls junior varsity and varsity lacrosse and track & field teams participating in Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) play. The boys and girls varsity lacrosse teams faced off against Langley in the CAC Championship games, where the boys varsity captured the CAC title and the girls varsity finished second. Final scores aside, the contests offered a fabulous afternoon of competition on the Foxhall Campus field, with four strong teams striving for their respective titles. The Wolfhounds junior varsity and varsity track & field teams participated in the CAC Track Meet last week, engaging in excellent competition with the six other CAC member-schools. A big congratulation to all the Wolfhounds on their outstanding efforts that afternoon on the track!
The Middle School Sustainability Council has been researching and discussing our overarching goal of finding ways of decreasing global hunger with sustainable food practices. Students have examined alternative ways of growing food, taking into consideration both the increasing population and challenging climate patterns. Relying on an Aeroponics Tower Garden on the MacArthur Campus, members are learning about how aeroponic gardening works, pH testing of the water, seed-planting choices, and the amount of time needed to harvest. Our students are hoping to incorporate a portion of their harvest in our salad bar choices.

Our inaugural A GREAT DAY TO BE A WOLFHOUND, a spring day of giving and school spirit, was a fantastic success, thanks to the enthusiasm and generosity of the St. Patrick's community! It was such a fun-filled day on campus, starting with a spirit-infused carpool orchestrated by our student leaders. We are overwhelmed with gratitude for the outpouring of support for the Annual Fund, which has raised our overall parent participation rate to 80% on our way to 100%! Nursery, PK, Grade 1, Grade 3, and Grade 8 all met the challenge of hitting 90% by the end of the day! It's All About Community, and we are lucky to have such an invested, spirited community here at St. Patrick's.
