Mark Slade ’02 always knew that the Northshire would be his home. Despite being drawn to travel and adventure, Mark never questioned whether or not he would make Manchester the place he chose to live, work, and raise his family. Mark’s mother, Bonnie Baird Oulette Slade is a 1967 graduate of Burr and Burton, and Mark married his high school sweetheart, Kate (Coniglio) Slade ’02. You might say that Burr and Burton runs through Mark’s veins, as he and Kate have four children, and their oldest is currently a ninth-grader at Burr and Burton.

Over spring break, the science department offered its first ever ecology trip to Costa Rica. The science department has not been able to have an ecology-focused trip for more than six years, so the students who went were in for a real treat!
The trip started off in Pacuare, Costa Rica, where students stayed at a scientific research base called the Pacuare Reserve. The students slept in cabins with no electricity, completely immersed in Costa Rica’s environment. Over the next three days they had one important job: protect the turtles.
