On Sunday, the Class of 2019 embarked on their five-day journey to Southern California. After a long bus ride, we arrived at Brandeis Bardin at around 4 p.m. We had some time to get settled and then all enjoyed a wonderful dinner together.

After dinner, we played some games and participated in a grade-wide drum circle. After the drum circle, we joined a capoeira class lead by Amir, a capoeira master based in Los Angeles. We worked up an appetite and ended our night with some ice cream.

It's been a fabulous day, and we are looking forward to more great activities in sunny, Southern California.
