A weekly update for
Cape Cod Academy families

Our Third Trimester Begins
A Note from Our Associate Head
Welcome to spring 2021 as we prepare for April’s arrival next week. It is hard to find words that can accurately describe all of the events of the past year without using the many clichés that have been so ubiquitous. As I look around and see the campus beginning to wake up from winter, I am hopeful about what lies ahead.
I am happy with the work that our students and staff have done to keep our school safe, healthy, and productive during in-person learning. As we begin the final trimester of the academic year, there are many things to look forward to, including celebrations, virtual field trips, and traditional end-of-year events, such as Field Day, award ceremonies, Moving-Up Days, and graduation. We are in the planning stages right now and the excitement is palpable.

The historical experiences that we have all survived this past year will forever leave a mark. I am privileged to have been able to be a part of this community, with my CCA colleagues and friends, and with your children during this experience. The magnitude of the events will take years to understand, and in the end, we can all say that we remained intact as a family during the 2020-21 school. Here’s to a bright spring. We all hope that you will participate in the many fun events that are being planned for the duration of the year and the opportunities for families to be on campus.

Associate Head of School

New CCA Sports Gear Available

Spring sports practices begin this week! Stop by the main office to purchase a new drawstring bag. They are lightweight, sturdy, and terrific for holding sports gear. They are priced at only $7 each. Water bottles are also available for $12 each.
CCA Eighth-Grader Takes Third Place in Biggest Amateur Supercross Event

Ryan Woeller ’25 brought home third place in the 125 class at the 12th Annual Ricky Carmichael Daytona Amateur Supercross (RCSX). The three-day national event, which was held at Daytona International Speedway from March 6-8, is the largest amateur supercross event in the world.

This was Woeller’s first national racing event on his 125cc dirt bike, as a growth spurt in 2020 caused him to move up to the big bike classes after spending the past year riding on an 85 and Super Mini. He made it through the qualifying rounds at Daytona on March 7, securing a spot at the Main Event the following day. With 35 riders at the starting gate, Woeller was able to take the lead within the first lap. The 4000-yard Monster Energy Super Cross track, which is made up of 26 million pounds of dirt (500 truckloads!) consists of whoop sections, rhythm sections, and triple jumps, challenging even the most seasoned riders.

Ryan trains in Massachusetts during the warmer months, and spends his weekends travelling throughout New England and the East Coast for local and regional races. In the off season, he heads south to ride, attending training camps and races. He has had the opportunity to train with Ricky Carmichael, the G.O.A.T. of Motocross, and several other national professional racers, including local pro, Chris Canning.  
After-School Art & Sports Programs Set to Run Again
This Spring

Cape Cod Academy’s after-school programs for lower school students will resume this spring. We will be offering both an art program and a sports program. Details and registration information are below.
March Vacation Camp

Lower school friends spent a week at Cape Cod Academy during spring break to participate in March Vacation Camp. They had a great time! Thank you to all the teachers who helped that week and to Luke Spinner and Elyse Soule who volunteered their time as counselors. More photos are available on the Resource Board of CCA's website.

Due to popular demand, we may offer a similar camp for a few weeks in June.
New Spring Program Offering for Middle School Students

Ms. Boyle is pleased to announce an exciting new program for CCA middle schoolers starting this spring called E2. This will involve self-directed learning on a topic or issue students choose, working alone or in a team. E2 is designed to provide students an opportunity to explore a topic, concept, or issue that falls outside the boundaries of typical middle school courses. The purpose of the program is to give students an opportunity to explore a topic, develop a new skill, or answer meaningful questions. Applications are due today, March 26. Please see details here.
