Tradition is a very important component to the life of a school like Casady. Whether it’s cheering for our beloved Cyclones in a big game against another SPC team, singing the Casady Hymn during Friday morning Chapel, or standing in line for that second, third, or even fourth cinnamon roll, we all have traditions that we hold close to our hearts, that define us as people, as a school, as a community.
For many years, independent schools like Casady have come together in a spirit of good-natured competition and play through intramural “Houses” comprised of students from all grade levels. These Houses compete against one another for recognition, participation points and special privileges.
We have four Houses to bring the Casady Middle Division community together in a way devoted to fun and competition in unpredictable and, often outrageous, ways.
Steeped in the traditions of the School, the four Houses are named after the first four headmasters to lead Casady School: Michael Martin, Shaun Kelly, Howard Taber and Robert Woolsey. Each House has faculty assigned to look after the House members, to encourage healthy competition and sportsmanship, and to rally support and participation in House activities. Each House has two Prefects, a boy and girl from the eighth grade, who participate in the planning and running of House Events.
