The Class of 2026 took a break from the norm this week as they participated in activities on- and off-campus in a spirited day of competition and team building.
The 9th Grade Breakout was a day to bring the entire class together to build community and foster relationships. The group began their day in the Gym with fun team-building activities led by members of the Associated Student Body. Next, they boarded buses and headed to a surprise off-site location for bowling and bonding at Bowlmor in Woodland Hills. In the afternoon, students shifted their focus to introspection and setting goals for the year. A group of leaders from the Classes of 2023, 2024, and 2025 led a workshop on identity that encouraged students to explore who they are and look for common ground with their peers.
Students ended the day by writing a letter to their future selves about who they are today and set intentions for who they will be a year from now. These letters will be mailed to students next September so they can reflect on the day and the growth that will occur.
Of course, no good Breakout is complete without delicious food. The students were treated to a catered pizza lunch, and they ended the day enjoying a delicious ice cream social catered by Nitropod.
It was wonderful to see the Class of 2026 come together to enjoy this full day of events. We look forward to building on this momentum in our weekly Advisory meetings for the remainder of the school year.
