Eighth grade bakes bread for Tender Mercies

On Thursday morning, Dec. 14, eighth graders restarted the tradition of baking apple spice bread for the residents of Tender Mercies, a nonprofit that helps homeless adults with mental illness have a safe place to call home. For many years before COVID, eighth graders participated in this service learning project and enjoyed the opportunity to care for their neighbors. The eighth graders are proud to bring this service tradition back to Seven Hills and the community. Throughout the day, students also participated in different activities to learn more about food insecurity around the world and in Cincinnati. 



Spelling Bee Finals

On Dec. 12, the top sixth through eighth grade spellers competed on The Schiff Center’s stage during the Middle School’s schoolwide spelling bee. After many intense spelling rounds, seventh grader Muhammad Ahmed won in the 24th round with the word “freewheeling.” Ahmed’s list of correctly spelled words also includes megaron, grebe, amphoras, dendrochronology, and Gilgamesh.  “The Middle School is very proud of all of our spellers!” organizer and seventh grade English teacher Mandy Hayes said. Congratulations to Ahmed, runner-up sixth grader Arjun Katneni, and wonderful job to everyone who competed!


Middle School Spirit Night — Winter Sports

On Dec. 8, the Middle School basketball, swimming, and squash teams were honored during the Upper School varsity boys basketball halftime for their hard work and dedication. One at a time, the players ran onto the basketball court as the Upper School cheerleaders and the crowd cheered and applauded them. Good luck this season, Stingers!


Seventh Grade tours iSpace and Reds Stadium

Seventh graders enjoyed their two-day field trip adventures around greater Cincinnati in mid-December. Students were split into two groups, with each group taking turns between visiting the Reds stadium and iSpace. When they visited the Reds stadium, students learned what it takes for a sports stadium to house thousands of fans and interesting facts about the Reds Hall of Fame. At iSpace, students conducted different experiments, such as testing various kinds of rock acidity, and learned about the path to becoming aerospace engineers.


Caring Place Toy Drive

Middle School students collected toys for The Caring Place during December, and on Dec. 11, representatives from The Caring Place picked up the donations. The Caring Place serves the Golf Manor, Kennedy Heights, Pleasant Ridge, and Silverton areas, providing families and individuals in need with services, food, clothing, and more.
