Student-Faculty Dinners The first student-faculty dinner will be held on a Sunday evening towards the end of February. The subcommittee devoted to this issue, headed by Eddie Kang ’07, has not yet come up with a definitive date. This first trial dinner will host approximately 50 people. Interscholastic Relations The Interscholastic Relations subcommittee, headed by Eddie Diaz ’07, has talked with other boarding schools such as Exeter about holding regional dances. They discovered that many other schools do in fact hold regional dances. This spring, Student Council plans to host one as well. Blue Pages Jim Elder ’07, head of the Blue Pages subcommittee, says that they plan on updating the information this term and expanding it during spring term. The final goal is to have a copy of the Blue Pages in students’ mailboxes next fall.
