More than 80 seniors gave up a day off on October 11 to lead the freshman retreat, sharing their personal experiences of freshman year, facilitating small group activities and discussions, and offering to support our newest students on their high school journey.

Students explored a wide range of emotions in relationship to Pixar’s movie “Inside Out”, and learned ways to deal more effectively with their internal states. The last emotion to be explored was Joy. To practice it, students drew on the ancient mystical tradition of Laughter Yoga. Okay maybe that is an overstatement, but it’s a real thing, and here’s what happened.
