Cacique Update-June 2nd, 2010

Caciques: Emma and Owen

To start off the day, we had a sleep-in. However, as typical Island School students and faculty, hardly anyone slept in– everyone was busy going free-diving and painting a mural in Deep Creek. After breakfast, we had our math final, which was based on the presentations from our Directed Study projects that had occured a few days ago. Another big event was our last community meeting. We certainly made it count– we didn’t talk about snacks at all! One discussion point of this meeting was sweatshirts. We are still deciding on the design of them, but hopefully we will come to a consensus soon and order them.

In the afternoon, some of us went on a dive for Marine Ecology, and the other half of us took the final fish ID quiz, and advisory time to prepare portfolios and DOLs (Demonstrations of Learning). It made for a full day. Also, after dinner we saw a very complex presentation about Lionfish done by a visiting researcher at CEI.

Soon thereafter we went to bed, so we could be well-prepared for our Human Ecology extravaganza.
