For the eleventh year in a row, headmaster Adam K. Man and his wife Beth invite seniors over to their house for dinner in the first weeks of school as a warm way to start the year off. The gatherings are intimate as they are split by gender as well as by two-three-or-four year seniors. The Mans started the tradition as a way to get to know seniors and to listen to them reflect on their time at Forman. And to get teenagers to talk, it helps to feed them as Mr. Man notes. "Every year, the four-year seniors just naturally slide into a trip down memory lane," says Man. "They'll say 'Remember that time in Lodge' and then the stories just flow."
