I planned to write an article for this week's edition of 242 about teaching self-advocacy at EHS and its lifelong impact on our students. A timely email taught me that some things are best conveyed by our students and our alums. There is no level of insight, no measure of eloquence, no moment of clarity I can share this week that would rival the following correspondence.

The Grateful Dead, Bela Fleck, Dave Matthews, Phish, The Allman Brothers. Our students undoubtedly channeled the spirits of the greats last Friday night as EHS’s two jam bands shook the walls of a packed Kresge Studio. I intended to go for 15 minutes, but their performances were so energizing I stayed for the whole show. There was even a moment near the end when you could close your eyes, listen, and think Ray Davies and Grace Slick somehow found their way to Hardwick.

As each day passes I believe more and more that some of our students are bound for a spot on Jeopardy, answering clue after clue as even the great Alex Trebek stands dumbfounded. They are a fount of random facts, trivia and knowledge far beyond what they’re learning in the classroom. As you all probably know, have a conversation with them and you'll learn something fascinating. Where they acquire these little amusing tidbits, I still scratch my head and yesterday was another perfect example.

The horn sounded and the first athletes deftly dove off the blocks into the water for a medley relay. The stands, filled with faculty, staff, parent and student fans, shook as EHS took a lead nearly 3/4 of the way through the race. Eventually the EHS elite were overtaken down the stretch by an experienced and skilled Bancroft School team, but the excitement was palpable. With Pioneer pride, EHS had just ushered in a new sport. Swimming had arrived.

Oh what a week it has been. We have smiling faces, renewed energy, laughter, activity on the dorm floors and even some carefree screaming across the quad. Students once again give life to our campus and no one is happier than I….for the return of the salad bar.
