We welcomed students to campus as our 107th session began this past Wednesday. Our students come from all corners of the United States and represent 23 countries from all over the globe.
It’s a week of firsts as students attended their first All-School meeting, first Wolfeboro meals, first classes, first intramurals, and their first evening study hall yesterday. Thursday afternoon was filled with making new friends and orientation activities. Students will enjoy their first weekend activities and trips over the next couple of days.
Here’s a short photo essay full of firsts. You can see galleries of opening day and follow our summer in pictures at Wolfeboro2016, our Shutterfly gallery.
Each Monday at the All School Meeting, we recognize students who have made selfless contributions to the greater community.
Nominated by the faculty, the Above and Beyond recognition publicly appreciates those students who have gone beyond themselves to help others through acts of kindness and generosity.
Each week we will post photos of the week’s recipients under this title.
Many years ago, our English department decided to celebrate especially good and productive readers and writers each week. Readers and Writers of the Week are nominated by their teachers and recognized at an All School Meeting. They receive gift certificates (Coop Cash) for the School Store. Each week we’ll post photos of the week’s recipients under this title.
Be sure to check our growing photo galleries through Vidigami. I try to post a new gallery almost every day. While a few pictures will be posted on this Blog, the Vidigami galleries hold many more photos to browse. You’ll find our galleries under the “School Events” tab.
While browsing the galleries, you’ll notice that some of the activities in the July 1st gallery look a bit different- indoors and under cover. We had a little rain Wednesday afternoon so we switched our afternoon schedule to include some quieter, indoor activities. However, as you can see, the rain ended and we had a gorgeous afternoon and evening.
Yesterday, I spent a good part of the afternoon on the waterfront, so you’ll find a good number of sailing and swimming pictures in the July 2nd Vidigami album.
