Wednesday's retreat for the Class of 2023 at Camp Green Lane was excellent from start to finish. Under brilliant sunshine, 9th graders participated in activities to learn more about their classmates through small-group bonding activities, including playing games such as "Color Bead Questions," "Find Your Twin," and "Classmate Bingo," all designed to help new students feel comfortable with their classmates and for everyone to gain an appreciation of the similarities and differences within the Class of 2023. Students also studied text related to the different food simanim (symbols) that are customarily associated with Rosh Hashana. Everyone also spent an hour in team-building exercises through a low ropes course at the camp.
Throughout the day, the Class of 2023 was engaged, happy, and inclusive of each other. The retreat set the tone for a wonderful year of learning and community building.
