Picnic draws great crowd

New and continuing students enjoyed a potluck picnic at the La Follette School on August 30 after the school's formal orientation program. The La Follette School Student Association sponsored the picnic, and vice president Justin Rabbach (shown below at the grill) took the lead on organizing with support from student services coordinator Mary Cate Treleven and the school.

Today (August 31), students plan to gather at 7 p.m. on Picnic Point for a bonfire and marshmallows. Thursday's all-day activity is a ropes course. On Friday a bike tour and golf outing are on tap.
