Today we dimmed the lights, sipped on some hot chocolate and spent our afternoon at an amazing spoken word poetry cafe. I was truly blown away by everyone's hard work, and by what a supportive audience students made. Here are two of our poets, Seth and Chris. Too proud for words. More videos will be posted on Monday.

Despite the snow and occasional steaming horse paddy, an amazing day was had by all at J and J Ranch. Students once again showed us how blessed we are to have such kind, generous and trustworthy students this year. Thanks for a great day of wagon rides, hot dog roasting, team challenges and group bonding. Oh and TEAM ORANGE RULES!
