The start of the school year saw our first Student Activities and Club fair.  During the activity period of our academic schedule, Upper School students descended upon Cherry gymnasium.  Dozens of extracurricular activities and clubs had booths set up from which students could get information.  What is A.C.E.?  What outings are being planned by the Adventure Program?  What kind of music can I expect to experience in the dance club?  What books might be read in the book club?  There was something for every student as they made decisions on how they will invest their time during our activity periods on Fridays this semester.  Our incredible faculty and student leaders made the event a success.  Our community continues to find creative avenues to ignite and nurture the curiosity, intellect, and character of our student body.  It was a great day!
