Nashoba Brooks School welcomed current and prospective families as well as friends in the community for Winter Weekend 2019, a festive three-day lineup of activities.
The ‘80s Dance Party kicked off the weekend for current students and families on Friday night. The night started with a pizza dinner and continued with a DJ who played the greatest ‘80s hits. Many students (and parents) dressed in retro attire and danced the night away.
On Saturday, a record crowd participated in S’mores & More, with close to 300 people in attendance. In addition to a S’more-making station, hot chocolate bar, and wintry-themed photo booth, activities included community service projects, coding, winter art, storytime by the fireplace, a drama workshop, and sports activities. Attendees also enjoyed a performance by Nashoba Notes, an a cappella group led by Middle School music teacher Christel Michaud.
“We are so happy to offer this winter celebration to our entire community,” said Head of School Danielle Heard. “It is wonderful to see so many friends of the Nashoba Brooks community and share highlights of our program.”
The weekend ended on Sunday with an ice skating party at Middlesex School’s rink where current Nashoba Brooks families enjoyed an afternoon gliding on the ice. Hot chocolate and good conversation brought the weekend to a warm close.
