MS/US Students compete in 2019 Cities in Space Competition

Author: Heather StClair  • 

On Friday, November 9th, a group of our Middle and Upper School students traveled to Austin, Texas, to compete in the annual Cities in Space competition. Held each fall, the Cities in Space™ Competition coincides with the New Worlds Conference, and offers students access to those who currently work in the space industry and space-oriented academia. Hosted by New Worlds Conference 2018, students from across Texas came together to present, compete and learn from one another about building a new world beyond Earth and how to create a surviving and thriving community. In addition to presenting their own projects, students had the opportunity to listen to speakers at the conference, and to interact with scientists, engineers, NASA experts, New Space leaders, and astronauts.

Harvest Day in the PS Gardens!

Despite the near-constant rain, our Preschool friends were able to celebrate a fantastic Harvest Day this past week! After many months of nurture and care, Mrs. Westbrook was able to help our youngest students harvest almost 20 pumpkins of various sizes from our own gardens located next to the Preschool building. After a bit of cleaning up, these pumpkins went into the PK-1 and PK-2 classrooms where they will be used for learning activities over the course of the next week or so!
