A Seussified Success!

Congratulations to the cast and crew of A Seussified Christmas Story. Once again, the students and directors have outdone themselves, and immensely entertained the community in the process.

Time to enjoy a well-deserved break, and then it is time to ramp up for Peter Pan in the Spring!



Blue Ribbon for the ANC Garden

As part of it's Community Greening Contest, the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society has awarded a Blue Ribbon to the ANC Educational Garden. Noting that the gardens were selected from over 350 entries, the PHS invited representatives to attend the award ceremony at the Governor's Mansion in December, as well as to the award ceremony at the PHS sponsored Philadelphia Flower Show in the first week of March.

In an article in the Weekly Wire, reporter Matt Schickling remarked on the dual function of the gardens, both as something that adds aesthetic beauty to the neighborhood and as an outdoor classroom. The ANC Educational Garden and the Bryn Athyn College Garden were nominated anonymously in tandem, and receive the award jointly.



Field Hockey Third Title in a Row

ANC played an evenly matched game against Springside Chestnut Hill in the first round of the PAISAA state tournament today. Fighting exhaustion after winning the Friends League Championship in overtime yesterday, the girls found themselves facing OT again after finishing the regulation time 1-1. Neither team scored during the first 15 minute 7v7 overtime period. A determined ANC team scored to win the game 17 seconds into the second OT period!

Round 2 of the state tournament will be played at Agnes Irwin school early next week.



Spanish Exchange 2015

Back by popular demand, the ANC Spanish classes are repeating the exchange with La Purísimsa school in Valencia, Spain. ANC students and teachers will travel to Valencia over spring break 2015 to live with host families, attend classes and tour Valencia as well as spend a weekend in Barcelona. ANC students will be in Valencia during preparations for the region’s biggest festival of the year: Las Fallas. They will get to experience the daily fireworks, numerous parades and gigantic ninots - huge paper-mache statues that commemorate and satirize the past year. In Barcelona, students will visit Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia cathedral and Casa Mila La Pedrera as well as Las Ramblas and Montjuic Mountain.

The Spanish students will be coming to ANC March 20-30, 2015 to stay with host families, attend ANC classes and also take day trips to surrounding points of interest. On March 30th, they will depart by bus for New York City, leaving directly from there to return to Spain on the first of April.

The trip is open to Spanish students of all levels. For the exact itinerary and prices, please see “Spanish Exchange VALENCIA (pdf).” There is a limited amount of financial aid available. Please contact Profesora Sarah Waelchli for more information or with any questions you may have.


Her Teaching Career Spanned 7 Decades

Morna Hyatt's name is synonymous with the Academy. In a career that spanned seven decades, she filled any number of teaching and administrative rolls -- always smiling, always helpful, always thoughtful. From the Reverend Eric Carswell's memorial statement:

"Morna’s decades of service to the Academy of the New Church and commitment to New Church education is a significant part of the history of this institution. During her career she taught subjects that were her strength and also helped out when needed by teaching subjects well removed from her main competency.

"She started out teaching Physical Education (much to the amusement of her siblings) and English. During her career she also taught Geography, French, Latin, Biology, Human Body, General Science, and early on focused on her primary strength Mathematics."
