Participating members of the RBHS and HHS Extended Education Experiences communities took a break from their daily routines and instead, journeyed outside for the EEE RetrEEEt Sept. 27-28.

Instead of going to school, the EEE students spent Thursday and Friday at Rock Bridge State Park and Rock Quarry Park, learning about leadership, community building, mindfulness and among other things, how to manage stress and find happiness. Students took classes such as “Mindfulness and Meditation,” “The Science of Happiness” and “How to Know When to Unload.”

By Monday, EEE members were ready to return to their classes with a new outlook on life as well as stronger connections to their peers and mentors.

Aniqa (pronounced On-eh-kah) is a perfect, pleasant and phenomenal photographer for The Rock and Bearing News. But all alliteration aside, Aniqa is one of the most amiable people around. Her smiles are infections, her sense of style is pulchritudinous, and her many talents are just plain precious. She can cut hair like no other and sing and dance at the same time, which explains why our beautiful belle is in show choir. And if singing and dancing isn't already quite the mix, Aniqa can also play the ukulele, guitar and piano (though not at the same time). She loves to hike, and is in the recently resurrected True False Film Club. If you see Aniqa in the hallways, don't be afraid to give her a hearty "Bonjour!" (yes, she'll understand since she's also in French Honors Society), because you'll receive in return a beautiful smile that will definitely make your day.
