Today kicked off the first day of electives where students were able to choose 1 of the four course provided and taught by our RA’s. Community service, Athletics, Life Skills, Photography and Writing/Composition. Then students enjoyed free time in the Georgetown boundary with their new friends. After, students were taken to dinner in the boundary where they enjoyed foods like, burgers, pizza, falafels etc ! Students and staff enjoyed the cooler weather as it was a crisp day with a light breeze. After the RA circle group dinners, our students enjoyed a kahoot game hosted by our RA’s called “Name that song”. Overall it was a lovely day here at Georgetown !
