    Hard-working students and faculty continue bridge construction in preparation for Appalachia Service Project

    Posted May 23, 2016

    In preparation for the Appalachia Service Project (ASP) trip this summer, the team has been learning how to use tools under the guidance of Mr. Walt Cupit. After a couple of hours of training, student participants and teachers decided to continue working on the bridge that was started by the Sophomore PBL group earlier in the year with the STEM-to-Civics Charter School from Trenton. Last weekend, after hours of hard work, the ASP team succeeded in putting three massive beams in place. A team of seven girls along with Mr. and Ms. Barnhardt, Mme. Hoppenot, Dr. Fagin and Dr. Medeiros continued working on the bridge on Friday during the Afternoon of Make. Using 430 nails, they hammered 45 planks into place to form the walking platform of the bridge. Just a few more hours of teamwork and the bridge will be ready. What an amazing job and major accomplishment! See photos from the project.

    Grade 6 takes a walk for water in the shoes of Sudanese women

    Posted May 16, 2016

    On Thursday, the Grade 6 girls participated in “A Relatively Short Walk to Water.” For part of their PBL on water conservation and scarcity, the girls read A Long Walk to Water in English class, which is about the women of Sudan and the long journeys that they travel to obtain clean water for drinking and cooking. Many women in Sudan travel four hours each way, sometimes twice a day, to get water. The activity consisted of walking to the upper fields to collect jugs, bringing the jugs down to the stream to fill them up, then perch the jugs of water on their heads and return to the upper fields, where they walked as many laps as they possibly could while carrying the water. The girls then returned to the stream and poured the water back and spent time reflecting on the challenge of the activity. See photos from the water walk in the gallery.
