Top Puppy - June 12, 2017


This week's Top Puppies have been nominated by Ms. Romano:

"I'd like to recognize two athletes from the tennis program. Jason Boucher and Kate Pemberton. These two student athletes are not only dedicated to the sport of tennis, but they are always polite and show an incredible level of kindness in their character on campus. While neither of them are captains; they take on leadership tasks to support their teammates. One has been tirelessly working on including all her teammates for special recognition to a parent that has dedicated so much to the tennis program for many years and the other just competed for State "doubles" with a senior "singles" champion. You'd never know the wiser how relevant he is on the courts and how instrumental she is for the team. These two posses the ingredients of being Top Puppies."

Top Puppy - June 5, 2017


Top Puppies this week are: Nikole Misage, Eliza Schack, Sadie Pepin, and Kierstin Pidgeon. These students employed their wellness first aid training during Senior Project Celebration Days. While watching a senior project, a student became ill. These young ladies quietly escorted the student out of the classroom without disrupting the presenter. After helping with the exit, they administered care to the ill student. Their ability to handle this medical situation demonstrates the Bulldog spirit.


Talking of Top Puppies, our athletics teams have had an amazing week! Congratulations to the Boys Tennis team and the Girls Outdoor Track for winning state championships, and the girls and boys lacrosse, the softball and baseball teams for progressing to the latter stages of their tournaments at the weekend. Best of luck Bulldogs!

This week's Top Puppy, for her dedicated work on the Student Council and Prom Committee, is Molly Quinn. Her outstanding leadership skills and commitment to the school, were truly exemplified when Molly spearheaded the organization of the Tropical Dance on the Tuesday before intersession. Hearing that the Bulldog Fest needed extra support, Molly led a bunch of dedicated seniors to organize an amazing dance, in the space of a week, that attracted over 350 students. Because of the hard work of Molly and her team, the Bulldog Fest is now ready to go. Don't forget......this Saturday 2-6, bring a blanket, and celebrate ten years of awesomeness!

Top Puppy: Monday, May 8, 2017

This week's Top Puppy has been nominated by Madame Brown:

"I would like to nominate Noel Desmarais for Top Puppy. Noel was on our French exchange intersession trip and really embodied all things French. His host family spoke no English so he really had to draw upon a lot of French to communicate. He helped Mrs. Shultz and I with our suitcases in the train. The last night we were in Paris I deliberately got us lost going back to our hotel and Noel rather than freaking out, used his head, and figured out how to get us back, using his French and his wits! He loved every part of the experience, was polite, respectful and above all tried always to communicate in the language."

Congratulations Noel

"We'd like to nominate Rachael Rohe for Top Puppy. All Roots Honors students took a social studies unit assessment on April 14th, and in preparation for the assessment, Rachael made a comprehensive study guide/flash card set. Not only did she offer it to her friends and her own class, but she made it available to any Roots Honors student who wanted it, no matter their class or teacher. Rachael, through her actions, really shows what it means to be a Bulldog!"

Top Puppy - April 17, 2017

This week's Top Puppy has been nominated by Mr Baird:

"I would like to nominate Emily and Megan Spencer for Top Puppies for their unbelievable bravery. During our Genetics unit in biology the girls approached me about doing a project so that they could talk about a rare family medical occurrence. They both worked hard to put an informational slideshow together and presented to my class with many personal details. I was shocked at the way these young women handled themselves and openly shared their lives to their peers. This is the bravest thing I have witnessed in 5 years of teaching."

Congratulations Emily and Megan!

"I would like to nominate Jeff Ashburner for Top Puppy. Jeff has a thoughtful and positive outlook and has reached out in small (yet big) ways to help. For example after a LOOONG day of taking SAT's on Wednesday Jeff stayed back to help pick up some chairs that were left in a mess and even offered to stay and help more!! I was impressed with his thoughtfulness and willingness to stay even after 4 hours of testing... Thanks for being such a great Bulldog Jeff!"

Top Puppy - April 3, 2017

This week's winners have been nominated by Ms. Lucontoni:

"I would like to nominate Ryan Lee and Max Chartier for Top Puppies. Both of these boys have been observed, on multiple occasions, spending quality time with another student. Two athletic, kind young men who genuinely care about the lives of other bulldogs. What makes this "puppy worthy" is that it is clear that they do not share classes or common peers, yet they still find it important to allow this young lady to be part of the whole school culture. These boys are giving another student an opportunity to talk about what is happening in her life, which is quite different than their own and they appear to genuinely care. They are not aware that they are being observed and yet they continue to take time to converse. It is what you do when no one is looking that truly defines one's character. These boys exemplify this."

Kacey initiated an email that led to an opportunity for her very lucky peers to travel to NYC to see the highly-acclaimed Hamilton on Broadway. The trip was a great success, and without Kacey, it would not have been possible. Thank you, Kacey!"

They definitely showed leadership, compassion and integrity in a scary situation, and they are role models for the rest of us Bulldogs!"
