Now that Orientation is over, here's a short recap of what happened the past week.

Campfire was unbelievable. The cheers from all of you during our dance showcase pumped our adrenaline on throughout the dance, the cheers from all of you got us shouting louder and louder, the cheers from all of you got us so proud of you guys. There and then, we knew that all the efforts and late nights we spent on the faculty dance was worth it.

Thank you each and every one of you for all the sweat, time and effort put into the SODACHE challenge. And, a special shoutout to 14S65, 14S7F and 14S6D, you guys were great. We might not have won SODACHE but you guys did an amazing job.

We did it. Artemis, Winners of War Games 2014.

Even with absolutely NO flags at the end of the 2nd quarter, you guys never gave up and kept fighting on. And by the end of the 4th quarter, we had 17 flags.  You have shown us what it is to believe, to never give up and to go against all odds.

The teamwork we witnessed on the field was insane. Cheering each other on whenever our attackers were attacking, when our scavengers were gathering ice cream sticks, when our medics were saving another Artemisian and when our thieves ran back with our own flags. Winning didn’t matter anymore; as one wolf pack, you’ve stood by each other even in the most difficult of times and showed the school what it means to be Artemisian.

We were ONE ARTEMIS fighting for the same goal. And we made it happen. We couldn’t have done it without you, and we’re just so proud of each and every single one of you. Thank you, Artemis.

And to our co-champions Ares, thank you for a game really well-played, congratulations! And kudos to Apollo and Athena, thank you, we hope you guys had fun too!

But it’s not over yet. POP is in 3 days. The week ahead will be tiring. But if we all work together, we will all have fun, we will all master the dance, and we will own it. So watch the dance tutorials and keep practicing. Come Friday, we’re gonna show the world what we’re worth. Here's the MV of our Artemis Fac Dance '14 if you haven't caught it yet!

And auditions for Dramafeste are now open! If you love acting, or have a thing for props, make-up and costumes, lights and sounds or publicity, do tell your senior CT reps!

And always remember,

With lots and lots and lots of love,
Fac Comm ‘13/14
