For many, November is the stagnant month in between Halloween and Christmas where you stuff yourself full of turkey and pumpkin pie, but at Moravian Academy there is no time to stop and let the food coma settle.

To help the whole school get off to a great start, the Upper School hosted Red and Gold games day, a day where everybody in grades one through 12 comes together to compete in games and challenges for their team color, Red and Gold. This year, the Gold team won for the fifth year in a row, but what was more important was having fun together all on one campus.
