|Step Singing Message: Go Inspire the World|

|The Annual George Washington Celebration|
The annual George Washington Celebration, marking the anniversary of President Washington's 129th birthday, occurred today, Feb. 21 in Morrison Gymnasium. The George Washington Birthday celebration is a tradition that dates back to 1922 at Ward-Belmont, the predecessor school to Harpeth Hall. At Ward-Belmont, upper classmen performed the minuet at an annual dinner honoring George Washington’s birthday. In 1954, Miss Patty Chadwell resurrected this tradition as part of Harpeth Hall’s ninth-grade physical education program. She created elaborate marching routines and choreographed dance numbers that were performed by “soldiers” and “sailors.” The freshmen elected two juniors as George and Martha Washington. Former English teacher Martha Gregory wrote toasts for the honored guests and speeches for George Washington, which are still part of the program today.
|Middle School Stages 'Alice in Wonderland, Jr.' |
The Harpeth Hall School presents Disney’s Alice in Wonderland, Jr. as this year’s Middle School production. When a sleepy Alice tumbles down the rabbit-hole and into Wonderland, her madcap adventures are just beginning! From chasing the White Rabbit to racing the Dodo Bird; to having tea with the Mad Hatter and rapping with a bubble-blowing Caterpillar; Alice meets one zany character after another while discovering some important things about herself! Fifty-nine Harpeth Hall girls are in the cast, plus many others are working behind the scenes to bring the story to life. This is wonderful family musical, suitable for all ages. Shows are 7 p.m. on Feb. 1 and 2 p.m. on Feb. 2 in the Frances Bond Davis Theatre. Tickets are $7 in advance and $9 at the door. For tickets, call 297-9543 or 301-9269.
