- Academic Classes and Evening Study Hall

- Athletics – Women have Cross Country Running, Men have Soccer
- First Discovery Group Meeting – seminar to share a two-minute ‘WHO AM I’ and goals for summer
- Performing Arts – preparation for singing auditions

- Journaling – questions on our weekly theme and we share our written responses

Curiosity and Truth have been our themes this week. They have given us a great opportunity to talk about discovering our best self, and then being true to who we are.
