LARPing at SOLE

Rachel’s Game Design course hosted SOLE’s first ever Live Action Role Playing (LARP) game. Run by Jamie Snetsinger and staff members from Elegy: A Doompunk LARP, the cafetorium was transformed for an afternoon into a bunker during a zombie apocalypse. Students worked in teams to decide how the work would be divided–and who would be sent outside the safety of the bunker to scavenge for supplies.

In the end, we had a blast, and most of us survived to live another day after the end of the world! A huge thank you to Jamie, Ashley, Morgan, and Myvanwy for running such an exciting event.

Prom 2017

Last night, students and teachers alike were transported to the tropics for the first ever SOLE prom: Prom in Paradise! We enjoyed music, a sumptuous feast, and signature mocktails amid tiki huts and surfboards. Thank you to everyone who helped make this an unforgettable evening…and stay tuned for more pictures!

SOLE End-of-Year Arts Gala

We had a phenomenal opening night! Students, families and friends, staff, and members of the community attended a fantastic celebration of SOLE’s talented artists, designers, and photographers at Fresh Paint Studio. Enjoying great company, snacks, and punch, our students showcased their talent in a wonderful gallery setting. Thanks to everyone who came out, and a very special thanks to Roxane at Fresh Paint for hosting us.

If you missed the opening, or want to see it again, the show runs until June 1st. Hours and directions are available on Fresh Paint Studio’s website.

The art show opens tomorrow!

We spent the afternoon hanging the art, and we’re ready to go! Looking forward to seeing our students, staff, and school community at the grand opening tomorrow night at Fresh Paint Studio (1849 Danforth Ave.) from 7 to 10 pm. Remember, the show is up all week, so if you can’t get enough of our students’ artwork (and who could blame you?), you can visit the gallery until June 1st.
