Unfortunately, for the second year in a row, it will be raining (80 percent chance of thunderstorms) on our Fall Family Picnic Day, Saturday, Sept. 17. We are postponing the Picnic. The Alumni/Alumni Family/Parents of Alumni Tailgate event that was planned for Saturday is now canceled. Soccer and tennis are canceled. The sunny news, though, is that Volleyball is still on in the gym and we are planning to have the Fall Family Picnic on Sunday, October 9.
Are the students writing on the table tops? Yes, they are working together on a problem from BC Calculus class. These new whiteboard tables are used by companies (eg. Google and Apple) that are very much into the design thinking movement. The tables are perfect for encouraging collaboration, innovation and fun.
