Updates from the Past Week

I was out of town for a few days taking my son William, a senior here at Conserve School, to visit colleges. While I was gone, students and staff members sent me a variety of updates to add to the blog. Thanks to everyone who e-mailed me this information while I was off-campus.

School Store
From Maggie, member of the School Store Community Service Team:
The Grand Opening of the Student Store was a hit! The students and staff all enjoyed coming over to the store for an after-dinner treat of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Elephant Tracks, After Dinner Mint, and Caramel Collision scoop ice cream. A raffle was held for the first free scoop of ice cream and Hannah M. was the lucky winner.

Conserve Student Chosen for Rotary Exchange Program
Congratulations to Sophie, who is being sponsored by the Minocqua-area Rotary Club to participate in Rotary International’s study abroad program for the 2010-2011 school year!

College Counseling
From Char Glashagel, College Counselor:
Last night (Wednesday) all the current C-CAP students met with five Grad Fellows to ask questions about college.  It was to be a 45 minute panel but extended past one hour.  Students asked many great questions and Grad Fellows were candid in their responses.  Thanks to Jeff, Rachel, Elliott, Polina, and Kevin, who volunteered their time, with special thanks to Kevin, who organized their participation.

Grad Fellow comments included: “College is like living in a dream world.”  “Get to know your professors.”  “Go to class.”  “Books are so expensive. You may be able to rent them.”  “Choose a college for the best education you can get regardless of price. The price will work out.”

Students Participate in Japanese Drummer Performance
On Sunday, students, staff, and community members enjoyed a performance by two Japanese Taiko drum groups. Students were invited to the stage to participate in the performance. Thank you to Dick, who took photos of the event and suggested that they be posted here.

Gretchen and Jake drum -- Gretchen is a percussionist so she has no trouble jumping right in.
