Seventh grader Loro Lado recently took advantage of an assist by eighth grader Banks Benitone as the elder statesman oversaw a full-scale break down and re-build of Loro's locker contents. With the detritus relegated to the ash heaps of the dumpster, the refurbished contents will now serve Loro opposed to him being subject to what was akin to a geological dig.
Don't be fooled by what you see here. The previous locker check of eighth grader Watts Miller was so unseamly it would have caused a sailor on shore leave to blush. Unfettered by the opportunity to create a new reality in the span of the first half of Lower School Assembly (that's 10 minutes for you common folk), Watts rose to the occasion with such alacrity that he earned a Front-of-the-lunchline pass for a week.
The experienced duo of Miller/Benitone (left hand extended to his reclaimation from the previous disaster zone), mentored classmate Roderic Lewis (right hand holding back the inevitable avalanche) into the MYLGA exercise. The eighth grade hallway remained reserved for the extraction/orderly re-assembly until the Period 4 bell singnaling the next class. Roderic is willing to show allcomers the results of his work.
Planning their work and working their plan is a Lower School discipline we aim to instill in the boys as they prepare for life in the Upper School and beyond. While an organized locker does not guarentee success, it clearly sets the stage for better functionality.
