Alums Excel at Bolles

Jacksonville Country Day School students are excelling at their next academic levels. JCDS alums and current middle and high school students at The Bolles School are not only at the top of the class in academics but are also shinning in everything from the performing arts, with roles in the Bolles fall play, to STEM, as members of the Bolles Bots FIRST Lego Team. The faculty, staff, and administrative team of JCDS are proud of how well-prepared the school's alums are for success at their next academic levels.
Alum Katie Fites (‘15) was “absolutely fantastic” in her lead role of Gabriela in the Bolles School’s production of High School Musical, JCDS Music Specialist Virginia Dickert said. Alums Alexandra Selevan (‘17), Asmitha Arun (‘15), and Meera Kuthiala (’17) also did an amazing job in their roles in the musical.
Layla Farah (’13) is on a squad of 11 cheerleaders from Bolles who will be performing in the Macy’s Day Parade as part of the “Spirit of America” cheerleading team. The parade will be on NBC on Thursday, November 23, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Avneesh Badarinath ('16) and Justin Lee ('17) are members of the Bolles Bots FIRST Lego League robotics team. The team is gearing up for their first official qualifying tournament on January 6. They hope to qualify for the regional FLL tournament.
