As frost covers the campus each morning and students don UGGs and Bean Boots, the grounds and maintenance crews remains hard at work. As soon as the first flakes fall upon the icy walkways, workers shovel snow and spread salt on the paths. Winter is tough on Deerfield Academy, and we are never more thankful for the efforts of the physical plant than when we slog through the snow and slush to get to class and sports practices. We also greatly appreciate the rapid responses to any heating troubles in the dormitories and those who work in the kitchens to prepare such favorites as the famous Christmas dinner. We at The Scroll encourage you to thank everyone who works every day to make our campus a better place.
