“Calhoun Rocks” was the mantra for 2018's Calhoun Fest, held days before Thanksgiving. The event offered students and faculty a chance to reflect on who we are and what we value as a community.
It was a morning filled with cross-divisional activities—math games, Mandarin lessons, physics projects and recycled-material fashion shows—with students teaching students. In between activities, students, faculty and staff were invited to paint “Kindness Rocks” with a word or words that represent something meaningful or unique about Calhoun. The hand-decorated rocks were formally presented at an all-school assembly at the end of the day, complete with musical tributes, speeches, and the video, What We Love About Calhoun, featuring students from across divisions.
It was a magical way to officially launch a new era for Calhoun, with our new Head of School, Steve Solnick.
