Yesterday during recess, kindergarten students took advantage of the snowy weather to work together in creating a classroom mascot:

Student photo to be used in Dr. Day's upcoming book

More kudos for seventh grade photographer, Alex Lein...

"I've known of Alex's passion for nature photography since he was in the fifth grade. When he heard that I was writing this book, he asked if he could submit a photo for it. I told him that I was writing about the 50 most commonly seen tree species in New York City and that I needed a photo of the goldenrain tree trunk. His submission is beautiful (above) and was accepted by the editor at Johns Hopkins University Press. Very exciting!" ~ Dr. Day

What We Are Learning in PreKindergarten

Students in PreKindergarten measured and weighed themselves after the New Year. They are comparing how much they have grown from the beginning of the school year to now.


As well, they have been experimenting with mixing colors. Using eye-droppers, the children combined drops of red, yellow and blue water (the primary colors) into empty cups to see what new colors they could make.
