Sophomore Hailey Firlotte is one of 15 new students in the Upper School at Stratford.

On Friday morning, Aug. 17, this new student did something new.

Along with other new students and the entire freshmen class, Hailey participated in the annual signing of the honor code at an assembly of all Upper School students and faculty in the Henry H. Tift Fine Arts Auditorium.

Headmaster Dr. Bob Veto began the assembly with advice to students about the honor code.

As students on the honor council stood behind her, senior McKay Powers called all freshmen and new students to the stage  by home room to sign the the pledge not to lie, cheat, steal, or plagiarize.
