    Looking Ahead: What is Wintermission?
    In February, students and faculty will depart from the normal curriculum for a week-long term called Wintermission. A stimulating change of pace in the depths of winter, this co-curricular program gives faculty and students a chance to delve into a single topic in depth, often with an experiential approach.

    Next Chapter
    Next Chapter, our student book club is currently reading House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer. Copies are available in the Currier Library Workroom.

    This coming-of-age dystopian novel set in the not-too-distant future, was highly accalmined, wining the the National Book Award, Newbery Honor, and Michael L. Printz Award Honor Book, among other prizes.

    "Farmer's novel may be futuristic, but it hits close to home, raising questions of what it means to be human, what is the value of life, and what are the responsibilities of a society. Readers will be hooked from the first page."--Publishers' Weekly,
