Weekend Activities

Events

Under the guidance of the Dean of Students and the Residential Life Coordinator, the faculty will regularly sponsor activities requested by students.

All students (day and boarding, Upper School and Middle School) are welcome to participate in weekend activities, unless otherwise indicated.  The weekend activity schedule is posted by Wednesday on the bulletin board by the library and to Google Docs. Parents/guardians may access this information on the school calendar. Parents/guardians of Middle School students are encouraged to contact the Dean of Students to help determine if an activity is appropriate for their child.

Events will occur both on and off campus. The majority will be scheduled for weekends but there will be occasional activities during the week. While the school believes that such activities are a crucial component of student life, we also believe that a vital activities program results primarily from activities initiated by the students themselves. 

Activity Account

All students start the school year with an activities debit account. Day students have $250 in the account and boarders have $1,000. Students may use these funds for regular weekend trips. More expensive trips will need to be paid for separately. The Weekend Activity Coordinator will inform any student whose activity account starts running low. Money can be added to the account by contacting the Business Office. At the end of the year, parents/guardians are given the option to have any remaining money refunded, applied to their bill, or donated to the school.
