Swimmer Named Athlete of the Week

Linden Hall's Junior High Basketball team lost to Veritas on January 12, 14-10. It was a close game! Lily Rhoades dominated the baseline with rebounds and cutting in for shots, going 2-2 from the foul line as well. Hunter Amos played remarkable defense and got several steals. After working hard on outlet passes in practices, the team successfully pulled off several outlets with even a few points off the play.

January 9: Lions Defeat York Country Day

After trailing behind almost the whole game, Linden Hall surged ahead in 4th quarter with two 10-foot jump shots by Sophia Lana to win this home game, 14-9! Scoring came from: Valentina Liu- 6; Lama- 4; Sophia Kapkova 2; and Lily Rhoades- 2.

January 14: A Close Loss to Manheim Central

We may have lost, but we walked off the courts with our heads held high. We played amazing man-to-man defense, resulting in Manheim only scoring three points in the second half. Kapkova scored in her first 30 seconds of play, and Alessia Archer scored her first basket of the season. Liu dominated inside and got the most rebounds on the team.

On Thursday, November 30 and Friday, December 1, Linden Hall girls participated in the School's annual Vespers. This music service has been a Linden Hall tradition since the Moravian Church founded the school in 1746.

During the Vespers service, members of the Linden Hall and Lititz community came together to reflect and celebrate the holiday season. The Linden Hall girls' hard work payed off as the Hand Bell Choir, Musea, Linden Hall Choir, Orchestra, small instrumental ensembles, tech crew, and others working behind the scenes came together to put on a beautiful performance. A special thank you to Ms. Lobo, Mr. Porter, Ms. Winfield, and Ms. Davis.

At this time of year, the holiday spirit rises in the small town of Lititz. Students buzz in and out of stores while shop owners eagerly prepare for the upcoming weeks. The Lititz Moravian Church has assembled its nativity scene near the fountain in Lititz Square. During this season, the Lititz community provides authentic traditional experiences including tree-lighting events, caroling, Advent teas, meeting Santa Claus, and Love Feasts.

Makerspace Hosts Hour of Code Activities

Throughout the week of December 4, Linden Hall students had the opportunity to learn a new lifelong skill in the new Makerspace on campus. Students gathered in the Makerspace to participate in an Hour of Code, whether they were doing it for the experience or just for fun.

Hour of Code, a national event, is a one-hour introduction to computer science where students can learn to program games, design characters, and more. Makerspace Coordinator Michele Archer scheduled times during club block and after school when students could come to the Makerspace and code for an hour.

Adding to the fun, each student who coded earned a point for their team, white or blue. If a student was experienced in coding and decided to help other students, they earned extra points for their team.

Hour of Code was a great opportunity for students to learn and to try something new!

Parents' Weekend Features Performances

Fall Parents' Weekend brought a large number of parents to campus to participate in teacher conferences, attend a trustee town hall, and enjoy a Parent Association reception. Linden Hall parents were also treated to performances by music groups and a theater troupe during two spectacular fall days in Lititz.

On Friday and Saturday evenings, the Linden Hall community enjoyed a hilarious theatrical spoof: The Iliad, The Odyssey and All of Greek Mythology in 99 Minutes or Less. And, the Moravian Church Fellowship Hall was packed on Saturday afternoon for performances by The Linden Hall Choir, The Linden Hall Orchestra, and chamber groups Musea and Sinfonia. More than half the student body participated in the performing arts events.

Evita Allen '65 and her husband, Jay, made a generous pledge to Linden Hall: to match donations to The Linden Hall Fund up to $100,000. Thank you so very much for your donations to meet this Challenge Match Goal!
