Mr. Kehoe’s Favorites

GHA Tradition: I love the Color Run at the start of the school year, where the whole school celebrates being back together!

Neighborhood Spot: Our family loves Bella Bella Beach on Fox Island. On a sunny day, there is nowhere else I’d rather be.

Outdoor Activity: Our family loves to kayak around the sound. We have two double kayaks and are getting more adventurous in our expeditions each time.

Place to Read: I love to read in the nooks of the big cedars on campus when there is some peace and quiet.

Childhood Memory: Hiking with my Dad in the hills of Scotland where I grew up.
