There is a $30 registration fee for each six-person team, and faculty are welcome to participate. It is a double elimination tournament, so each team is guaranteed at least two games. Please submit your registration, money, and team roster to Mr. Thompson by Wednesday, February, 5. Please contact Mr. Thompson at if you have any questions.

Global Studies speakers needed: The Global Studies Certificate Program students would love to hear from YOU for the Global Studies Speaker Series. The GSCP's series offers short, practical talks designed to show our students the many ways they will draw upon their global citizenship in their adult lives. If you work in a global context, volunteer with an international organization, or enjoy a hobby that lends itself to exploring the world or its cultures, please consider sharing your story with the Pennington Global Studies students. Talks are held on Friday afternoons from 3:05 to 3:30 p.m., and fit between school and after-school activities. Please email Director of Global Studies Kendra Sisserson at if you're willing to speak. Thank you!
