Mr. Denis Murphy, our humanities teacher, passed away this week in a tragic car accident. His death comes as a great shock to our entire community. He was a dedicated teacher who especially loved mentoring our creative writers and encouraging them to submit plays, short stories, and poetry to national competitions. He will be missed dearly, both in the classroom and in the life of our school. Mr. Murphy was one of the founding members of our faculty. Let us remember his for his kindness, and let us use that kindness to support each other in this difficult time.
