Week in Summary: April 12 – 18

This week, students had to adjust to carpetless floors on the second floor and a massive new structure on the Upper Field, which has now blossomed (blossomed?) into a quite impressive ropes course. Knowing Beaver, though, it’s probably just a summer camp thing… like the pools…

Thursday, of course, was “The Breakdown,” which you can discuss here, and Asian Night. We’ll have more on that later.

We also reported on how Beaver plans to upgrade its internet connection to be thirty times faster, Erika posted her college essay in the Literary Corner, and Emily profiled Middle School Counselor Chris DeFilippo. Beaver Director of Communications and parent ’07 Jan Devereux wrote a guest editorial on jury duty.

Happy four-day weekend!



  1. I talked to Mr Saltonstall about the new high ropes course. While it will make its debut for the summer program, there is talk of making climbing an activity for students next year. (There’s also that rock climbing wall in the upstairs room of Gym B.) Mr Anderson is going to get trained on the ropes course this summer to work at the camp. I suggest someone get the scoop straight from Mr Saltonstall or the Athletic Dept. It might help to know how many students would be interested in a climbing activity.
