Actors and actresses by night, scientists by day!

Our fifth-graders are are making models of invented animal adaptations to help them survive climate change, while our sixth-graders are busy cleaning up a mock oil spill! And, using their iPads to document the process from start to finish.

Tonight the Upper Elementary play was exciting and well performed. Hope you saw it in person or live-streamed. Proud parents and thrilled guests enjoyed the evening. ...

Yesterday the first-graders visited the Hall of Birds at the American Museum of Natural History! Please ask your child all about the birds they saw in various biomes AND about their current African bird study. ...
