    Gallery of the Week

    Last week was just plain fun. Mr. Peck started off the week with a Head's Holiday; no one expected it as it was so early in the semester, but with the sun shining and the temperatures in the 70s it wasn't hard to get in the mood. It was the perfect day for jumping in a pool, digging toes in the mud, or just lying on the turf. Congratulations go to the buildings and grounds department for all their work on the biomass plant which should be receiving a shipment of woodchips sometime late this week or early next week. Congratulations also go to all the students who received awards during the winter sports assembly on Tuesday. Spring sports are well under way and it is exciting to look around and predict who will be the winners for the spring!

    Holderness Raises Funds for the Vera Bradley Foundation
    This spring, the Holderness School vestry and outreach committee are focusing their fundraising energy on the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer. May 2 is the event date which will include two lacross games, a 5k race, a cook-out, music, an open-mic, and a movie. 

    In a recent assembly, Barbara Baekgaard, co-founder of Vera Bradley and the Foundation for Breast Cancer (and grandmother of Henry Hall '16) skyped in to share about the project. Students and faculty learned that 100% of the money raised goes directly to Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center, and that Holderness is halfway to its goal of raising $7500!
