On Saturday, February 27, Viewpoint’s community came together in-person and online to celebrate the School’s first Viewpoint CommUNITY Homecoming.
The morning was a chance for students to come to campus for fun and festive Homecoming activities, which included joyful drive-through events for each division featuring the School’s Cheer and Football Teams, Patriot Pete, and beloved teachers and coaches – all while listening to Viewpoint Radio.
The evening event was hosted by Upper School Student Council Executive Board members Isabella A. ’21, Marissa B. ’22, and Zach S. ’22 broadcasting virtually from locations all over campus, reminding the viewers of the beauty of our school and the creative ways academic and extracurricular activities in Grades K-12 have continued despite the challenges of the last year.
The evening began with the Upper School Chorus singing the “Star-Spangled Banner” and the Middle School Chorus performing the Black National Anthem, “Lift Every Voice and Sing.” This was followed by other performances by the Primary School students, Lower School Strings, as well as behind-the-scenes, socially-distanced rehearsal footage from the upcoming Middle School production of Annie. The online format also made it possible for viewers to see Upper School programs in action like the Mock Trial students making their arguments in court or design students creating models using a 3D printer, as well as viewing student-made films, and the Cross-Country runners in training.
Although this was a Viewpoint Homecoming like no other, our students, faculty, and families demonstrated that the magic of our CommUNITY endures as our students continue to learn, grow, and thrive.
