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!
The last games of the season were played this weekend. While some skiers will continue to compete through the end of March (and even the beginning of April!), most teams closed out their season this week by planning a few final games and honoring their seniors. Congratulations, Bulls, on a terrific season! Photos from this weekend can be found on Smugmug in the sports section.
Special Programs preparations have begun! As Project Outreach kids begin gathering items to donate to service organizations in Phili, Out Back kids are organizing their gear and practicing walking in snowshoes. On Monday the juniors began their week with a service in the Outdoor Chapel; they learned the Out Back Song written by Chris Little '71 and listened to his words of advice about Out Back. Blessed with fresh snow and sunshine, it was a gorgeous morning on which to begin their Out Back adventures! Check back often over the next three weeks to see more photos of Special Programs.
