A Fresh Feeling
Shining a Light on Community Events
* International Night – April 18
This beloved tradition has changed up its look over the years, but one thing is a constant: it’s a way to celebrate our multi-nation community. In the past, this has been shared through music, dance, and especially food. We’re always excited to hear about the announcement and slate of events to honor this day!
* Arts Day & the Spring Musical – May 6 & 7
Arts Day, simply put, is a joy. Masterminded by Director of Visual and Performing Arts Amy Wilson, we take a day off from regular classes and engage in a full day of the arts. Students get to sign up for workshops in a wide range of performing and visual art mediums, enjoy a fantastic lunch with live music, and so much more. This is also the day when the art department presents its annual art awards. The day ends with a performance of the spring musical for the school community—this year’s show is Little Shop of Horrors, a classic horror-comedy musical complete with a ravenous plant from outer space. We can hear the laughs now!
* Springfest – May 14 & 15
Springfest is held the week before graduation. Not only is it a great stress reliever, but it’s also a perfect time to have some fun with your classmates and enjoy time outside. Past activities have included glow dances, music concerts, talent shows, waterslides, volleyball, lawn games, and others. Stay tuned for this year’s schedule!
Ready for Spring?
There is so much to look forward to in April and May. Soon, you’ll be craving the lacrosse warm-up music that echoes out from Kennedy Field across all of campus, not to mention the afternoons spent watching the softball and baseball games under the sun, courtside seating for tennis matches, and enjoying your lunch at the picnic tables. Perhaps your house will even have a barbecue night—just for you and your housemates. And every once in a while, you’ll hear the clang of the old bell ring as a senior marks their commitment for next year.
Spring is ready—are you? See you back in New Hampton in a few weeks!
