Over the last two years, a group of upper school students has traveled to Sandy Point State Park on a Thursday in late January to participate in the Polar Bear Plunge. The Polar Bear Plunge is a public event that allows people to “take the plunge”, diving into the near-freezing Chesapeake Bay in order to raise money for the Special Olympics.
Opening in 2017, Mt. Washington’s Woodrow’s Bar-B-Que has already grown to be a notable restaurant that’s less than ten minutes from Boys’ Latin. Its 4.8 star Google rating and the reviews, for the majority, have nothing less than good things to say about this southern-style eatery.
It’s long block on a Friday afternoon. Students are ready for the upcoming football game at 3 p.m.. The student sitting at the front desk is almost fully asleep, while the student in the back of the room is already asleep.

The 9:55 bell rings. Morning break has begun. A mass exodus of students head down the hill from the Upper School to the school store, buying bags of chips, M&Ms, sodas, and iced coffees. This journey down the hill to the school store has been a staple in the Boys’ Latin community since the early 1980s.
