Make New Friends and Keep the Old Tuesday, September 14, 5:30p - 8:00p
All members of the corporation (students, parents, faculty, and interested community members) are highly encouraged to attend this semi-annual tradition. During our fall meeting, we'll meet and greet the new members of our community (a staggering 31 students, and some fresh staff as well), learn about (and hopefully engage in) our committee governance structure, and, of course, POTLUCK! Here's the agenda:
27th Beginning of:
9th Grade Service Week
10th Grade River Expedition
11th Grade Service Expedition
12th Grade Post-Secondary Explorations Week
Wednesday Afternoon: The Top of the Mountain
Wednesday afternoons are giving off a pretty raw, unexplored type of vibe. As part of the evolution of our schedule, we'll be opening up our Wednesday afternoon schedule to the possibility of the universe. Students may sign up for an activity from a weekly smorgasbord of options. If you are a student, please sign up for Wednesday 15 September by clicking either hump in the picture above. (signup deadline is Monday, 13 September, 3pm). If you are a student, parent, staff, or community member and would like to offer a one-time or recurring activity for our students, please contact Matt.
Two of the YIHS sinks are not functioning really well right now. Do you have what it takes to power up our drainage? If so, please contact Matt.
The 9th Grade Nutrition Class is on the look out for some food items:

O brother, put me in your pouch
As you would a fresh, sweet locust -pod.
For I am frail as a flask of glass,
As a fine grey egg, or a slender rod,
O brother; and I am the golden ring
You wear on your finger so gladly. For God
Takes everything from you tomorrow, and gives me everything.
