Instead of the typical Saturday morning brunch, we inaugurated the opening of our new girls’ boarding house with a pancake breakfast! We ate pancakes, sausage, and fruit, hung out, and enjoyed one another’s company in freshly furnished living space. Mr. And Mrs. Albea made over 180 pancakes for our 65 students.
Tuesday night Mr. Fletcher (Headmaster) and his family invited our boarding community into their home for an Ice Cream Social. Our students played games, socialized, and, of course, created and consumed their own ice cream creation. With activities, 3 flavors of ice cream, 7 toppings, and 65 students we had the recipe for an enjoyable evening.
