Senior Lia Kaufman, captain of the blue team, feeds freshman Craig Bolman apple pie during the pie-eating challenge. The goal for the teams competing in the Amazing Race was to finish all five slices of pie.

Head of high school Brooke Wells welcomed students back on orientation day, Aug. 27, by reading the poem “Introduction to Poetry.”

Students then attended shortened class periods, ate lunch provided by the Parents’ Association and participated in the Amazing Race, an activity organized by Student Council.

In the Amazing Race, high school students were divided into 11 color teams and competed against each other in six tasks: riddle solving, Pictionary, a pie-eating contest, a water-balloon race, a free-throw challenge and a human-wheelbarrow game. The fastest to complete all six tasks – the white team – won; red and blue came in second and third, respectively.

Students were dismissed at 2 p.m.
