The students have been learning a lot – anything from how hard and soft lights affect the definition of a photo to how easy-to-follow chronology and a relatable beginning help make great short stories. After classes today, students were caught off guard with a short but strong thunderstorm. Some hid inside while others danced outdoors. Then, they went together to the dining hall to enjoy al pastor quesadillas, shrimp acapulco, and myriad fruits.
After lunch, ten students swam, played soccer, and participated in a coin scavenger hunt, and nine students walked down to Westwood Village for snacks and fresh air. The coin scavenger hunt involved a total of 50 gold, silver and bronze coins, and only 5 purple coins worth 300 bruin bounty points! Most students in Westwood Village marched directly to Target to purchase cheese puffs, orange peach rings, and other snacks.
After evening activities and dinner, the students became very involved in our first ever Quiz Night. Our jeopardy game had categories including past activities, Oxbridge, our faculty, and culture. Blue Team is leading far ahead in Bruin Battles, yet Gold Team remains resilient! After jeopardy, many students stayed in the Prep Center to play a round of Kahoot with 29 questions about the Marvel series.
Everyday, we are so proud to see students grow accustomed to doing good deeds such as eating healthily, picking up trash, cleaning up after themselves, and sharing food with friends even if they are not awarded Prep Points afterward. We do not have a shadow of a doubt that this good behavior will continue in our final week and a half together. Keep checking back for authentic updates!!
