“Are the hawks mating again?” “I want to put the wood in the firepit.” “Layers, layers, layers!” — LWS students.
Their year has been filled with excitement, as they transformed their campus into an outdoor school in mere weeks, and as a result strengthened their community. Student capacities and skills were enhanced by being outside, and their faculty and staff increased stamina and flexibility, all while building an appreciative relationship with the elements through the year. The sky was literally the limit! And they continued with that energy as they had a Circus, Archery Club, Pentathlon, May Faire, and Medieval Games.
