The Class of 2014 presented their projects in the first part of April.

Here is a beautiful slideshow put together by Mairead Collins, class of 2014. The culmination of Mairead’s senior project on happiness was to lead a weekend retreat with ninth and tenth grade girls on the subject of finding their own happiness. The weekend planned by Mairead and her mentor, Joan White-Hansen, included yoga, dance, meditation, artistic work, and shared meals featuring whole, organic foods.
