The Retreat allowed the students to get to know each other through Team Building activities, and to plan their year. Personally crafted Paper Airplanes with two questions you most want to know about someone new served as a great icebreaker for the morning. A game of Whodunit provided hilarity, and a peek inside to what makes the students tick.
Davie Community Foundation President, Jane Simpson, shared with the students about Philanthropy and the history of the Community Foundation so the students had a better understanding of what they were a part of, and the difference they can make.
SURF Board Co-Presidents George Haire and Grace Nixon led the students in setting their Guiding Principles for the Year, as well as setting group goals and personal goals. A fitting end to the day was breaking back up into teams, and challenging each other to a Popsicle Palooza – which team could eat their bucket of Popsicles the fastest in relay fashion.
It is going to be a great, and busy year!
