Those of us who live and work in the San Domenico Boarding community would like to extend a warm welcome to our new Director of Residential Life, Carrie Robley.
There are many fun activities and trips in the dorms to highlight each week, but one of the sweetest experiences we have is one that never gets much attention: our dorm floor meetings.
“What would you do if you won a million dollars?” Prefect Mali N. asked the people at our table during Monday’s Community Dinner. As we went around the table sharing how we’d save money for college, travel the world, or buy Mom a car, we learned something new about each other.
“Our San Domenico boarding students are loving the outdoors this year. The students have woken up at 5:30 am twice to get on the trails and have hiked eight miles through Muir Woods," remarked our Athletics Director and Resident Faculty Mark Churchill.
Every year after Labor Day, we notice a shift in the Dorms. The initial buzz of activity as students move in, meet one another, or reunite with old friends begins to mellow as we settle into our living spaces and our routines.
From Town Hall meetings on the Green to trips and friendly floor competitions, Boarding Students are settling into life at SD.
SD welcomed over 130 students into the dorms, including students from 23 different countries!
It has been the longest year we have ever had in the Boarding program - and not just because this year Covid was challenging in many ways, but because quite literally, we have been open to students continuously since August of 2019!
We are officially wrapping up the year. With the seniors finishing their projects and preparing for Senior Transitions and Graduation next week, we’re preparing to say good-bye to a memorable year in San Domenico Boarding!
As many of our boarding students mentioned last week in their expressions of gratitude, our sports teams have created a lot of energy and joy throughout campus. We are fortunate to have a lot of coaches and athletes in our boarding program, including many members of our UNDEFEATED Badminton team! Go Panthers!
We in the boarding community of San Domenico have a lot to be grateful for: we live in a beautiful setting among friends, the weather allows us to get outside and have fun, summer is just around the corner, and, of course, we have the best commute!
It’s hard to believe we’ve come to the end of April and are moving into our last four weeks of school! In the dorms, however, we always have new and exciting changes, and we’re constantly striving to improve our program.
We had a beautiful week to celebrate Earth Day! Sustainability is an important school value at San Domenico, and that begins with celebrating and valuing our planet. We have taken measures throughout the dorms to promote sustainability.
Last weekend was busy with many students returning to campus after a spring break and a week of distance learning. This week we headed back to the classrooms and a return to our routines.
It’s been a quiet couple of weeks in the dorms, as many of our students returned home for the short break and extended distance learning.
