Middle School students took a bonding day Tuesday to run their second annual Marathon Race at Indian Lake.  A race designed to be competitive, team oriented, and most of all FUN, Marathon is a race around the lake composed of eight teams that are tasked with many different jobs; from running, to kayaking, to swimming to fire building, and pie eating.  In essence, it is a big relay race.  Students and faculty enjoyed their enthusiasm and excitement for the new school year, and it presented new students an opportunity to let go of the stigma of a traditional school setting.
Rabun Gap Cross Country ran strong in their first official cross country meet held in Cullowee, NC at Smoky Mountain.  Abdi Yusuf '16 came in 5th in the boys 5K, and leading the girls race, Anna Armfield '17 came in 1st with a time of 21:42 for the 5K, a personal record for her.  Overall the boys team came in 5th.  The girls team was too small to place at this meet.
Rabun Gap opened for the 2015-2016 academic year today with 425 students – up 10% from last year overall, and up 27% in the Middle School alone! Students hail from 36 countries and 13 states. New countries added to the diverse Rabun Gap student body this year include Italy, India, Bulgaria, Bermuda, Finland, Poland, and Syria. Dr. Sgro addressed Upper School students at Academic Convocation, challenging them to try new things, while being genuine to their true self. Eagles Lead the Way!  Pictured:  Interim Head of Middle School Lynda White greets students and parents.
