  • October Boarding Hall News

    Life in the boarding hall is going well and we can’t believe that we are in the middle of October already! Weekends on the Hill are busy with plenty of activities. We have gone off the Hill to enjoy roller skating, buy Halloween costumes, see the musical Miss Saigon and go to Knott’s Scary Farm.

    We have also had a lot of fun with a ramen and anime night, board game nights, puzzle time and movie nights. The girls had a great time during the boarding hall retreat and have started some year-long projects from retreat, which include growing an herb garden, painting panels to hang in the hallways and designing a boarding hall sweatshirt. Our first intentional program of the year was on inclusion and the boarding council led students through discussion questions in small groups on how they would react to different scenarios. We also had our October prayer service where we reflected on healthy friendships in our lives.

    One highlight for October is the start of our academic support program. Ms. Sarah Mackenzie joined our team at the end of September and comes to us with many years of boarding experience—both from her time as a boarding student and from her 8 years of working at the Webb School. Ms. Sarah will be hosting hours on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays in the halls to help students with their academic work. Please encourage your daughter to seek put this academic support; Ms Sarah can provide tutoring in all subjects, especially in grammar and writing. The strongest students seek out additional support and feedback.

    Our annual boarding retreat was held on Saturday, September 21. This annual all-boarding event seeks to build sisterhood and explore topics around our boarding theme, "Dream the Impossible Dream." Presentations, team building events, hall competitions, a prayer service, meaningful activities, and a special meal rounded out the day.
    The October birthday party, a Haunted Night, celebrated the October birthdays in the dining hall. We enjoyed carving pumpkins before the dinner and dressed up in Halloween costumes.

    We have formed a new leadership group in the boarding hall, the Boarding Hall Service Council. This student-led service group will help to guide the content and activities of the boarding service learning program.
  • September Boarding Hall News

    With August behind us, life in the boarding hall has developed a nice rhythm and spirit. The girls have been signing up for numerous weekend activities; and more cross-grade friendships have emerged from spending time together. We have done a full day walking tour of Los Angeles, enjoyed Universal Studios, played at the ocean, explored Melrose Avenue, gone go-karting, and enjoyed on campus bonding such as pizza parties, cooking, games and sushi nights. We have launched our first service project, making blankets for shelters. Having this healthy work-play balance keeps the girls more emotionally healthy.

    One of the highlights of September included the celebration of Mid-Autumn Festival, an elegant dinner overlooking the valley below at which we enjoyed a special menu, mooncakes, and poems and music about the moon.

    The September Birthday party, a night in Hawaii, celebrated the summer and September birthdays on the lawn. Games and activities made for a special tropical evening!
