Explorer Day does more than just keep underclassmen busy
FROM STAFF REPORTS
Volunteers from inside and outside BEHS gave demonstrations, led workshops, and facilitated activities during the school day, April 9. While juniors were busy taking the SAT and seniors were off volunteering at the elementary schools (or sleeping in), Bonny Eagle's sophomores and freshmen got a chance to have some fun while learning about various pursuits and hobbies.
Students rotated through several modules during the day, having chosen from such varied activities as yoga, woodworking, journaling, corn hole and badminton competitions, knitting, and cupcake decorating. They also had a chance to see firefighting, martial arts, virtual reality, and hairdressing demonstrations, led by faculty or former students.
Students also listened to presentations by Jake White and Tomas Barazza of VIVE 18, a transformational drug and alcohol program for teens that provides them with strategies for throwing drug-free parties and learning to have fun without the peer pressure surrounding alcohol-driven activities.
