Students gathered at the upper field to sled during X-period on Jan. 4. Outdoors Club hosted the event. “Our goal is always just to get people outside and have fun. It was cold, but there was cocoa,” co-president Hannah Scott said.

The blustering, negative degree wind carried the sound of laughter from the upper field as students slid down the hill during X-period on Jan. 4. Outdoors Club hosted the event in spite of the freezing temperature and provided a warm treat for sledders.

“It was pretty cold, but there was cocoa,” club co-president Hannah Scott said.

Outdoors Club aimed to add an element of fun to the first day back from winter break, and had success brightening the days of participants.

“[Sledding] was the best part of my day. I was really excited…It seemed like the best way to get back into school–by doing something fun,” senior Sabrina Rucker said.

A group of about fifteen students came out to the hill.

“I had fun. Hopefully that will be the only part of my senior year that involves sliding,” senior Ned Laird-Raylor said.

In exchange for the frostbite and windburn, sledders were rewarded with hot cocoa and laughter. Through this event, Outdoors Club reminded students to make time for fun and enjoy the natural world–no matter the weather.
