May Tea Returns for First Time Since 2019


On Wednesday Austin Prep seventh graders participated in the May Crowning Prayer Service and May Tea. This annual event (although held for the first time since 2019) is an opportunity for students to invite one special guest - a mother, grandmother, aunt, or neighbor - to join them in the Chapel of Saint Augustine for prayers followed by a small reception in the Dining Hall to celebrate Mary and motherhood in all its forms. Students and their guest are invited to bring flowers or a small plant to place around the Statue of Mary as a part of the celebration. Photos from the event can be viewed here.

Middle School Science Labs Continue

Middle School students applied lab skills and knowledge in a series of experiences on campus this week. Forensics teacher Ms. Kerry Barrett facilitated a microscope lab for eighth-graders to solve the "Case of the Chocolate Caper." Students examined clues under a microscope and compared their samples against the evidence to crack the case. Ms. Aprille Hibbard, Science Faculty, organized a field lab to collect data on the Aberjona River that runs through campus. Students extracted water samples and then evaluated them for factors like temperature, phosphate, iron, salinity, and pH levels.
