Cacique Update-May 7, 2010

Hello, greetings, good morning to you all.

We shall relay the day’s happenings, since we cannot call.

We had extended exercise in the morning, and we all got real fit.

After breakfast we attended humeco, history, or lit.

Walking into lunch we were all suddenly awakened,

For before our eyes laid some lettuce, tomato, and bacon.

We had five hours of research in the fine afternoon.

Aquaculture harvested Cobia, not too late not too soon.

Patch Reefs went out in the field and speared some lionfish.

They ended up with 12, more than they had wished.

The day ended with some study hours and the stress did ensue,

Because the next day our research results were finally due.

We went to bed exhausted, but pleased with the day.

And that is what happened on the 7th of May.

“Ahhahhhhh don’t want a lot for Christmas, theres just one thing that I need, I don’t care about the presents underneath the Christmas tree, I just want you for my own, more than you will ever know, make my wish come true. All I want for Christmas is yououououou.” [Editors note: Will and Meg saw Mariah Carey on Harbour Island during their Down Island Trip. They were enthusiastically singing this song in memory of their great adventure.]

Today was exciting. The beginning of the AP test series (consists of a brutally long day in a vehicle),  Human Ecology (life lessons from Remo Velardo), Literature (Omeros is so close to making sense, if you cut words off the page and then put them in different orders you can make something almost understandable), Histories (Preparing for a field adventure into the wilds of ancient plantations), Art (It’s self portrait time; some people dug holes to represent themselves – don’t read too deep into it), and Hamburger Day (We’re all alone on campus too, we usually only get burgers when Maxey is in town).

Hello parents,
Today was the third day of the second academic kayak rotation, and we had an art day in which we spent our morning working on our self portrait projects. After lunch, we left for community outreach where the 7th graders did a community cleanup, followed by tamarind cups, and the 8th graders went to Rock Sound to interview local residents about their public service announcement topics.

After lunch we headed out for the afternoon to collect data for our  Human Ecology projects. For these projects students are broken into groups and create naturalist guides for the birds Continue reading
