    Jack Valentine Taking His Talent to McDaniel

    Jack Valentine '20 has no memory of life without the sport of baseball. He recalls being three years old and having catches with his dad in their back yard, transitioning to the local recreational league as soon as he was old enough to enroll. As an elementary student in the Washington, D.C. area, Valentine was a member of a local travel baseball team. When his family relocated to Hockessin, Delaware, he shared his talents with his Sanford and local Babe Ruth teams, in addition to playing for his D.C. travel team in the summers. Valentine has proudly been a contributing member of Sanford’s varsity team, primarily as a pitcher and a catcher, for the past four years.
  • Parent Meeting Focuses on Sanford's Commitment to DEI

    Sanford’s Home and School (H&S) Association’s first meeting of the year took place on Thursday, October 17th, in Quigley Hall. Approximately 25 parents took time out of their morning to attend the meeting, which was open to all families in the Sanford community. Because the 2019–2020 school-wide theme is IDENTITY and because honoring diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is a guiding star of the current Strategic Direction of the Board of Trustees, H&S invited Upper School instructors Jamy Haughey and Elizabeth Capone, members of Sanford’s DEI task force, to provide a brief presentation on the topic.

    Collins Commits to Baylor's NCAA Division I Program

    The sport of Acro & Tumbling (A&T) is relatively new, especially at the collegiate level, but once Zöe Collins '20 discovered it, she knew it was just what she had been searching for. As a gymnast since the age of three, Zöe grew up loving the sport. However, a couple of years ago, she began to feel that she had given gymnastics all she had to offer. After being injured and away for the sport for a while, she came back to compete one last year as an artistic gymnast and finished up her gymnastics career at Regionals as a Level 8. A new twist on the sport presented itself at just the right time for Zöe, who had long been associated with First State Gymnastics.
