Ninth Grade Retreat Returns

In its first year back after the COVID pandemic, the ninth grade retreat took the freshmen class to Camp Ernst in Burlington, Kentucky. The class spent two days getting to know each other and understanding the expectations of the Upper School, said Director of Experiential Learning Karen Glum. Glum, who is new to her position and the retreat, invited back Nick Francis, who started the retreat when he was Head of Upper School. The students competed in a series of relays with their advisories and played watersports. Seven upperclassmen joined the freshmen for a mummy relay contest and to answer questions about being an Upper School student.
