Congratulations to all of the students that placed in the recent Speech & Debate Tournament at McQueen. Raghav Bhalla ('26) and Warren Strominger ('26) placed 3rd in the Public Forum debate. This was a huge achievement because they were competing against Senior level debaters and still managed to make it to the finals. Also, Nanki Sandhu ('25) finished 1st in the Novice Lincoln Douglas debate, which was tough to do as the pool of kids was large (20+). It was only her second time breaking into finals, and winning a tournament is a big deal.

The upcoming elections are barraging all modes of media. No matter our political outlook or cultural beliefs it is critical in a democratic society to be able to disagree without being disagreeable. It is imperative that we are open-minded and able to listen without rancor and speak passionately without fear of violence. This, to me, is what makes the emphasis on polarization by the media, by political parties and many politicians particularly worrying, especially because some members of our society are using antipathy, enmity, and even force to create fear and suppress the freedoms embedded in our constitution

As we begin a new year, the joy of learning is readily evident all over our campus - in classes and beyond. Teachers are excited to get their classes going with an inspiring start that will nurture passion and purpose all year long. Students are sharing stories, signing up for activities, and getting their brains and bodies back up to speed for the challenges of our curriculum and opportunities. All of this requires a growth mindset. I believe that Sage Ridge truly fosters the courage to continually grow and develop a lifelong joy of learning.
