You’re Excused Then.

Whether it’s hiking through the Shenandoah mountains, camping on Assateague Island, caring for a snake, bird or turtle in the Lower School, or exploring in the Valley, we strive to instill in our students a sense of awe and appreciation for the natural world.  A recent exchange between Mr. Love and a tardy student shows we may be making some progress:

Mr. Love:  Hurry up, you’re late for class!
Student:  Well,  Mr. Love, I had stopped to look at a white-breasted nuthatch pecking on a tree.
Mr. Love:  Are you sure it was a white-breasted nuthatch?
Student:  Yes, it was walking down the tree, upside down.
Mr. Love:  You’re excused then.

You’ve got to love Spring at The Heights.
