Hello again and welcome to another edition of The Bridge. It was a busy, yet oddly quiet week here at Stanbridge. Quiet, because all of our elementary students and high school underclassmen were away on their fall experiential trips. As I write this, the students and chaperones are enroute back to campus and I look forward to hearing all about their adventures. The reports from chaperones throughout the week were positive and it seems that everyone had a great time. Many of you will likely get the scoop from your student this weekend, but we'll be sure to share some of the highlights online next week when we post pictures from all of the trips.
Despite the relatively quiet campus this week, those who were here were busy. With the ninth, tenth and eleventh graders away, our high school seniors had a unique opportunity to focus on the future. "Transitions Week" helped them to start thinking about and preparing for what lies ahead after Stanbridge. More on Transitions Week on The Bridge mainpage, along with notes on some upcoming transitions events for parents and guardians.
With everyone back from their trips now, it's fitting that we have the hoedown this Sunday. The event is a great opportunity for students to reunite with their classmates after the recent spate of experientials, as well as enjoy the usual hoedown highlights: delicious barbecue, carnival games, petting zoo, pie contest, raffle, silent auction and more. Pam has full details about the hoedown in her SPA Spot this week, and please note that if you forgot to RSVP, you can still purchase a ticket at the door on Sunday. An early "Thank You!" to all of the volunteers who donated prizes for the auction and raffle and those who donated their time to work at Sunday's event. Check back for a full summary and pictures in next week's edition of The Bridge. Until then, don't forget to stop by the mainpage for additional updates and calendar notes. Enjoy the weekend and I look forward to seeing you on Sunday!
