Eagle Night flies high, despite different atmosphere

This year’s Eagle Night was one to remember.

In years past, the event has been held in the Grady Gymnasium packed with students, parents and, faculty who are there to show their Eagle Pride. Along with the band, the cheerleaders have performed for the crowd with dance and stunts.

his year, however, because of social distancing rules due to COVID-19, the typical Eagle Night was replaced by an Eagle Night procession.

Cars were allowed to drive by, while listening to the songs of the band, and see the cheerleaders perform and wave to the other varsity teams.

 “It was a little bit more personal because I got to interact with so many families as they went by,” Head of Upper School Mrs. Theresa Ferrari said.

 “It was a good demonstration of school spirit,” Junior Aaron Perkel said.
