First Day of School Activity Photos

After a night of games and unpacking we gathered in the Shonk Recital Hall for our first Morning Meeting of the Year. From there we met with our camping trip groups for short planning sessions before the students headed out for their activities block. We decided that we wanted all the students starting on the same day this year so we have built our preseason sessions into the opening week of school. Here are some photos I shot of my tour of campus this morning. I was struck by the fact that every group this fall is coed! The energy was awesome and we fortunately only had light rain from the hurricane.
