Thespian National Qualifier!
Stacey Smith is bound for the National Thespian Convention in the summer of 2021
Calvary Thespian Students competed at the Virtual Texas State Thespian Festival and attended virtual workshops. Although this was not a typical year, students enjoyed the convention and worked hard preparing for the competition. Calvary is pleased to announce that for the fourth straight year in a row, Calvary Episcopal Preparatory is represented at the Virtual International Thespian Festival competition. Sophomore, Stacey Smith is headed to Nationals with her monologues “Jamie” from Between Mars and Me by Rose Helsinger and “Sandra” from What the Well Dressed Girl Is Wearing by Arthur M. Jolly.
Archery at Calvary
Calvary Episcopal Preparatory students were delighted to have an opportunity, for the second year in a row, to be able to participate in archery. The Archery Team has been learning and growing under the direction of October Smith (Manager) and Scott Lightle (Project Coordinator) of Long Acres Ranch. Long Acres Ranch “provides a unique, natural environment for educational and recreational activities and promotes the appreciation of nature and open space in the heart of one of the fastest growing areas of Texas” (longacresranch.org/). 24 Calvary students, grades 4th – 12th grade, head over to Long Acres Ranch once a week to learn and practice the 11 steps of archery success.

Calvary Episcopal Preparatory’s CPTO (Parent Teacher Organization) hosted a Winter Wonderland on December 5th which was open to students and the community. Children of all ages enjoyed reindeer games, hot chocolate, family photos with Santa and the biggest hit of all, SNOW. There is nothing better than cool weather and snow to put us in the Christmas spirit!
