This week, our classrooms launched their first project-based units of the school year in STEM. The hands-on, inquiry based units are as follows: Float your Boat! Density & Buoyancy (K/1), Astronomy (2/3), Evolution & Adaptation (3/4) and Kitchen Chemistry (5/6). Lots of exciting learning ahead…..be sure to check back for more updates on their projects!
On September 21st, students honored the United Nation’s International Day of Peace by “planting” pinwheels for peace and participating in a variety of peace-related activities and discussions.
We are excited to launch our first official sports team- middle school cross-country! Led by Coach Erin Capps, the team has been practicing on trails in the area and is looking forward to competing in several meets this fall. Go VT Day!
Our school garden thrived over the summer, thanks to lots of sun (and rain!) and to the Vermont Day School campers who helped to take care of it. This morning, our K/1 class harvested 17 cucumbers from the garden beds. Looks like they might have some pickling in their future!
Vermont Day School is thrilled to be kicking off its 3rd school year with an outstanding group of students, parents, faculty and staff! Here is our first day of school photo:
