Christmas with a Cause

Campus Ministry hosted its third annual Christmas with a Cause sale on December 18th. Students and faculty chose from fair trade items--from scarves and bags, to jewelry and chocolate--while sipping on fair trade hot chocolate and listening to carols. What a wonderful way to get into the Christmas spirit--and find some last-minute presents!  

D.A. Thespians Compete in our annual Shakespeare Competition

On December 16th, the school community gathered for a wonderful tradition--the annual Shakespeare Competition, sponsored by our Shakespeare Club and the English Speaking Union. Eighteen students competed this year, each reciting a monologue from one of Shakespeare's works. The winner of the competition, sophomore Victoria Foote, will represent Dominican Academy at the city-wide Shakespeare Competition next Spring.
