On Wednesday, November 21st, SHS students participated in SPLASH, an activity-based experience designed to bring students of all ages and interests together. Approximately 27 different workshops were conducted, and students could participate in two different workshops before attending the annual SHS pep rally.

Some of the more popular SPLASH activities included a nature walk with Mr. Scavotto, drum circle with Mr. Gruschow, memes with Mr. Blake, and ping-pong with Mr. Pumphrey and Mr. Z. Ms. Naylor led an arts and crafts session where students created Tootsie Pop turkeys. Students who were seeking a more relaxed setting participated in full sessions of yoga with Mr. McNeil and Ms. Colangelo. Meditative coloring, mindfulness meditation, and ballet basics were also offered.  

Students who expressed an interest in leading SPLASH workshops were encouraged to share an interest or talent with their peers. Seniors David Sullivan and Ryan Song worked with Ms. Lesniak and Ms. Ames to present a workshop on conspiracy theories. Senior Ryan Frankel worked with Ms. Lima and Mr. Gross to organize a workshop entitled “German 101.” Co-teaching with Ms. Murray, junior Erin Logan taught a session on American Sign Language (ASL). Currently studying ASL through online education, Logan is interested in pursuing American Sign Language in college and during her professional career.  

Modeled after the annual MIT Splash! Academic Outreach Program, this year’s SHS SPLASH program was organized by math teacher Phil Blake. According to freshman Ben Short, SPLASH was “a good way to wind down before break.”
