Upper School Weekly Wrap-Up: 04.04.22

US Header 4.4

Here is a short wrap-up from this past week—April 4 through April 8 —in the Upper School.

Clubs met Monday this week. While there’s no Club Spotlight this week, you can check out all our past Club Spotlights here.

Tuesday was Day 1 of Revisit Day 2022 where our newly-accepted families came back to campus to delve deeper into the Beaver experience.

US Revisit Day 1

As part of Revisit Day, newly-admitted students attend Tuesday’s Upper School Advisory Meetings with their Beaver student host, participating in the activities and games and getting a feel for what advisory is really like at Beaver.

Our second Revisit Day was Wednesday, and similarly to Tuesday, newly admitted families got the full Beaver experience.

Wednesday afternoon Dr. Rebecca Hall, author of Wake: The Hidden History of Women-Led Slave Revolts, joined virtually to talk about her work and lead a discussion on subjective versus objective history. Wake is a graphic novel about the history of women-led slave revolts and the work Dr. Hall had to do in order to uncover that history.  Senior Nala Hayden ’22 led the conversation.

Thursday was International Beaver Day, and we shared some fun Beaver facts (the animal, not the school) on our Instagram.

In Upper School Class Meetings:

  • 9th-grade students did a DIY fashion show on the Design Level;
  • 10th-grade students were on the Research Level making posters for their advisories;
  • 11th-grade students went to Gym A and played Send Your Best;
  • 12th-grade students went to the Green Gym to talk about Senior Spring events.
