Mountain Day a.k.a. Get out of Class Free Card
First of all, for those of you who read my post last week and commented on my road trip this summer, thanks so much! It was a great experience and I’m so glad we got to hike the same glacier trail and see the same magnificent view!
Anyway, Thursday was MOUNTAIN DAY. I have to say, I woke up completely unaware that there might be a slight chance of MOUNTAIN DAY. (I put “mountain day” in capitals because whenever someone talks about it they always yell with extreme excitement). As the day continued, I heard rumors that today was the day. After a very successful morning for the deceiving faculty during advisory meetings, I was fooled into believing it was totally and completely not MOUNTAIN DAY. We went to our first class, (mine was pottery), and my teacher is ms. Oliver and I have to say, she kept a pretty good poker face but my fellow students were giving her the hardest time about how it was probably MOUNTAIN DAY.
We then heard an announcement that we had to report to Bingham auditorium immediately and by then, our whole class started bouncing off the walls. This is what happened at the assembly…
(There is a video that Mr. Catlin took but I was experiencing some MAJOR technical difficulties with it. BUT it is up on the Gould facebook page if you want to see it! Here’s the link! )
– Mr. Ruby whipped out his famous “mountain day” scarf (assuming you can buy them in the bookstore for anyone interested in Mr. Ruby’s style) and this odd yodeling music blasted in the speakers.
We were given 15 minutes to change and report back to the auditorium. When we got back, we were told of the different trips and whether they were hard, medium, or easy and left on the school buses. There was a little twist to this years MOUNTAIN DAY. We hiked Sunday River. But here is a beautiful view from the top!
Here is another BEAUTIFUL picture below of the chairlift and the fall leaves
And here is another photo of us all heading up!
I would have to say that it was a pretty successful MOUNTAIN DAY! All I saw were happy faces and torn up legs.
Until next week,
