It was a big week for Sundevil athletes! Not only did our Girls Varsity Soccer Team win their third straight State Title (three-peat!), but our Boys Varsity Soccer Team also brought home the State Tournament trophy. That's not all! This past Saturday, Epherem Zerai '19 and Skyler Gee '20 took first place in the State Cross Country Meet. (Epherem’s win is the first Boys Individual title in school history). And there's more. The Varsity Volleyball Team won the District Tournament, and the Sundevil Dance Team took first place in the jazz, hip-hop, and military divisions in their weekend competition. Way to go, Sundevils!

Barbara Young Simms, Founder, Sandía School (June 22, 1920 - October 27, 2018) Barbara Young Simms, our founder passed away on Saturday. She was an indomitable spirit whose life journey was spent in the service of others. She founded Sandía School at Edith Boulevard and Osuna Road in 1966 because she felt that girls deserved every bit as good of an education as boys. “When you educate a boy, you educate a man. When you educate a girl, you educate a family,” was a phrase she often repeated. She will be deeply missed. Please read more about our matriarch (click the headline above.)
She led our varsity volleyball team to a three-peat. And now Audra Gentry '06 is being honored by the American Volleyball Coaches Association as a top high school volleyball coach in the nation under 30 years old.
The renovation of the McCall Family Theater is complete, and we are proud to announce The Frank and Dolores Hines Stage. Ms. Dolores "Dee" Hines' contributed the funds to renovate the theater including the replacement of 330 seats, new carpet, paint, and the construction of a new lighting and sound booth.
Congratulations to Head of School Mr. Bill Sinfield who is nominated for a 2019 New Mexico Ethics in Business Award!
