Adolescent Community: Physical Expression
From Dr. Bilezikian, Director of the Adolescent Community:
We will be sailing on Lake Michigan tomorrow for this week’s Physical Expression.  Students should come with swim attire and regular clothes.  There is a changing facility at Wilmette Beach.  Sunscreen will also be a must.  We will be fixing sack lunches here before departure, no need to fuss with that.  I anticipate that, barring traffic issues, etc., we’ll be returning by 3:30 carpools.
The image below is what your students look like preparing for this.  There are projects in process on:  history of sailing, physics of sailing, sailing techniques, modern sailing, and aquatic safety.
