The competition took place on Jan. 18 at 12:45 in the auditorium, and sign-ups were posted on Schoology several weeks prior with a list of eligible monologues.

Simar Bajaj (11) announced a speaker event hosted by Medical Club, which took place from 12:45-1:30 on Jan. 18, featuring Dr. Paul Bollyky who spoke on wound healing and biomaterials.

Key Club talked about their upcoming fundraiser at the Chipotle branch in Cupertino, where Harker students can purchase food and specifically designate that their payment be donated to the club’s fundraiser.

The Junior Council encouraged students to buy tickets for this year’s Winter Ball, “Midnight in Paris,” which will be held on Jan. 26 from 7:30-10:30 p.m. Early-bird ticket prices ended on Jan. 18, and tickets are now being sold for $35.

Upper school Head Athletic Trainer Jaron Olson made an announcement about P.E. credit fulfillment, urging seniors to meet with him should they not have sufficient credit to graduate at the moment. Spring sports registration will open in a week, and three yoga classes and one Capoeira class will be offered next semester for students not involved in interscholastic sports. In addition to the previously offered options, there will be fencing classes held now as well. Interested students are encouraged to email Jaron Olson at [email protected].
