Hanging Out!

Anyone on campus on Wednesday heard lower schoolers passing the word: “Today is hang test day!” A twice-annual event in lower school PE, the hang test challenges students to use their upper-body strength to hang from the pull-up bar attached to the Barn for as long as they can. Students complete this task once in the fall and then try to surpass their previous time in the spring term. Older students and younger students alike are thrilled by this challenge, and all day long, students share triumphs and new goals with each other. Upper schoolers who have long since left the lower school stop by to see how the hang test is going, and more often that not, they still remember their own personal bests for the hang test! Our older students often help out the younger students, as you can see in the photos below, where third graders model good form for their kindergarten schoolmates. Students are already looking forward to their next hang test day in the fall!
