Spring is finally here!
With spring truly here and delight in
sun, warmth, outdoor sports and events permeating all we do, we are able
to put the great February snow behind us, step over puddles from
exceptional rains, and throw open windows for the sounds of birds under a
higher pitched voice from that of Lacrosse and Ultimate Frisbee.
Black Rock Forest is open to us now and the winds have pruned most of the trees. Much poetry is being written here at the School. A literary adventure with Harold Heno to Ireland, Wales, and Scotland (we upped the sales of Ulysses, I believe) was a great success. SKS students re-discovered the great authors known only to them cursorily.
I had a delightful turn-around trip of a few days in Bangkok with a group of alumni that wish to help the School—a most charming group of gentlemen, people the School can be proud of in so many ways.
Ahead of us, just this side of a dance program, play and graduation will be Viva Las Vegas Casino Night on April 23rd. Please join us for one FABULOUS evening! All of the proceeds will benefit The Storm King School's Scholarship Fund.
As most colleges and universities' fiscal year end earlier than us, we hope our dedicated alums will take some time to visit for the Graduation ceremonies on June 5th. We ask them to come and speak with seniors about their time away from Storm King. With warning, I am usually able to put up five or six of you in Spy Rock.
Here, up on the mountain, the return of spring permits a whole new outlook. As winter disciplines us––spring helps us transcend worry. It pushes us out of ourselves into an arena of possibility.
