The Mountain School is all about being communal and loving each other, right? Right. Except during dodgeball. During dodgeball, it’s all about the glory. Glory > everything. The Spring 2015 dodgeball tournament was one of the fiercest on record, with students competing in their dish crews while wearing great outfits. Special shout out to the Doors and the Lords for their dishcrew-name-inspired clothing.

Thanks KOA for the photos and filming!
Following a drum and dance workshop and performance by Jeh Kulu, we hosted a Mountain School version of the popular reality TV show So You Think You Can Dance. The performances were judged based on three criteria: 1. incorporation of West African dance moves, 2. whole group participation, and 3. overall quality. The winning group was Noli’s, dancing to “Pumped Up Kicks” by Foster the People.
Featuring: Theodor, Liam, Noli, Katie, Eliza, Charles, Sam K, and Ariana.
Saturday, March 1st, students took to the ice for an epic all-school broomball tournament. First round games were played in the afternoon. Then, after dinner, there was a torch lighting ceremony and a procession down to the pond for the finals, played by torch and moonlight. Jacob’s team conquered in the end, led to victory by the light of his flaming red hair. Californian Sam surprised everyone with four goals. He turns out to have a secret ice hockey past, which no one knew about because do they even have ice rinks in California?? (Apparently they do). Ben G., also known as “the Mid-Western Wall,” was the MVP for the tournament, in recognition of his exceptional goal tending and facial hair. Feel free to be jealous that whatever you did on Saturday night was not nearly as epic.
“It doesn’t matter/Who you are, where you come from./Here, broomball is life.”
