The student leaders help to run the monthly Town Meetings. Here they are shown helping as Mr Berardi, resident dragon master, presents Miss Colonero the Dragon Cup. Classes earn Dragon Stones for demonstrating their good character in their Gym, Library, Art and Music classes. The Grade that has earned the most Dragon Stones at the end of the month earns the Dragon Cup for that month.


Many colorful and creative costumes were seen.
