Several weekends a year, our Res Life team joins with the student body to address important topics, celebrate culture, or simply let loose in the name of school spirit! Community weekends are a great way to come together as a school and make a difference; whether it be through school-wide discussions on issues like bullying, engaging in community service and picking up litter throughout the town, or heading to the gym for Dorm Wars!
More recently, the girls’ and boys’ dorms squared off against each other in dodge ball matches and relay races, while other teams scoured the campus on a scavenger hunt, using clues to recover objects hidden in different buildings. With hopes of earning even more points for their dorms, students participated in a Saturday night talent show competition before moving on to a school-wide dance. The stakes were high-- the winning dorm earned an hour off from study hall for a dorm-wide pizza feast.
In January, Community Weekend will celebrate the rich diversity of our school with an international fair (featuring cuisine from around the world) an international talent show, and a sports-from-around-the-world tournament. Stay tuned for more pictures...and maybe a delicious new recipe or two!
