What’s even better than a snowday? A snowday shared with 80 of your closest friends and classmates, of course! That’s exactly what Foxcroft students who stayed on campus enjoyed this weekend. And it’s fair to say that the three feet of snow didn’t put a damper on their fun. In fact, it seemed the girls’ spirits were as high as the drifts — which were massive!

Murder-mystery games, baking and Wii marathons in the dorms, plus dodgeball, ping-pong, music-making jam sessions and hot chocolate galore in the Athletic/Student Center gave the girls plenty of options for fun things to do through the hours of seemingly endless snowfall. When the snow finally stopped falling and the sun came out Sunday, scores of girls hit the “slopes” to enjoy some terrific sledding, and then warmed up while roasting s’mores around an outdoor firepit.

Foxcroft’s maintenance crew worked tirelessly to keep the main walkways around campus clear. The Dining Hall staff not only kept everyone fed, but created some fun with make-your-own eggs, a coffee bar and rootbeer floats, among other special treats.

Still, three feet is a lot of snow and travel beyond and to the campus is still a challenge. With this in mind, Monday classes havewere canceled for Monday, Head of School Cathy McGehee informed students and parents Sunday evening.
