    What do you do when you get sick of winter but the snow hasn't started to melt? At Holderness we change things up! On Friday in Assembly Rachel Tejeda shared with us some stories about her home country of Dominican Republic, and Ms. Devine's theater class performed a dance number for us. Then, rather than end with a song, President of the School Charles Harker led us in a school-wide game of Rock, Paper, Scissors. Congratulations school champ, Jessie Montague and runner-up Will Blatz! And while the winter sports teams played their final games this weekend and honored their seniors, the juniors began to prepare for Out Back. All the juniors now have their gear and spent the weekend snowshoeing around campus and breaking in their new gloves. Only one week to go! Stay tuned for more OB prep photos!
