    Sitting on the bleachers on the Middle School soccer field, a team of purple clad students steadily worked on folding lavender paper. One student gave directions to the rest of the pack until each was holding a paper airplane. Another group of students decked out in orange sat in the grass carefully folding peach paper to make their aircraft. First, the purple team climbed to the top of the bleachers and one by one each student flew his or her creation. Lavender paper planes landed softly in the grass: some taking a perfect nose-dive, while others floated gently in the breeze amid cheers from a crowd of fellow students. Then the orange team flew their planes, hoping the peach paper would land farther than the lavender. The top three airplanes to out fly the rest earn points for their teams. This was just one of the many activities set up for the first annual Middle School House Games. "The purpose of the House Fall Games is to build an immediate sense of spirit and camaraderie among students," explained Ben Ottenweller, MS director.

    The House program is new for the Middle School this year. "The mission of the CHAMPs House Program is to focus on three pillars: Spirit, Service and Leadership," said Mr. Ottenweller.

    You'll be hearing more about the program as house-related activities happen this school year. The Middle School Houses are each named after Fort Wayne landmarks, and the students from each house will be involved with those landmarks. They are the Maumee House, St. Joe House, St. Mary's House, Rockhill House, Foster House and Headwaters House.

    The High School campus, by the greenhouse, was the perfect setting for the Fall Family Picnic, Sept. 20, where more than 500 gathered for fun, food and friendship. Adults visited, while children played games. The cake walk was very popular, as well as the dunk tank. The students loved having the opportunity to dunk their teachers and High School students. It was wonderful having families from all four school divisions, plus alumni and friends all in one location sharing the common bond of being a part of the Canterbury family. Enjoy photos from the picnic, homecoming games and a very casual, but competitive alumni soccer match. And, thank you to the MANY, MANY, MANY volunteers who helped from morning to evening with all the activities on campus for homecoming and the picnic.
