A Sierpinski Triangle is a fractal based on an equilateral triangle, made by dividing the triangle into four smaller triangles and removing the central triangle and then repeating for each of the three remaining triangles. If you repeat this process forever, you get a fractal. 7th and 8th graders created a 3D version of the Sierpinski triangle called a tetrahedron. Check it out!

Calvin and Hobbes

Meet Calvin and Hobbes—two Russian Tortoises who live in Teacher Tippi’s room. A few weeks ago, the students in Service Club learned how important it is that the tortoises spend time outside. As an act of kindness to our animal friends, the group took Calvin and Hobbes outside on the first really warm Spring day. The tortoises had such a great time exploring that it was decided that their outings need to be a regular event! While out at recess, curious students from preschool through 8th grade gathered together to spend time with Calvin and Hobbes and ask many amazing questions about their diet, bodies, habitat, and behaviors. Everyone had a great time enjoying this outing—especially the tortoises!

Kindergarten Art Show

The Kindergarten class enjoyed art so much that they explored the impressionists as their end of the year study. Students learned about Monet, Degas, Renoir, Van Gogh, and Mary Cassatt. They discovered that the artists enjoyed painting outside as they walked to the pond at Haverford College to see how it feels to create pictures on a beautiful sunny day. This study connected their love of nature that they have been immersed in throughout the year. It also helped in understanding that master painters spent their lives doing what they loved, no matter what other people said about their work at the time. Kindergarten created their own outdoor art museum and invited their families to enjoy their artwork displayed outside and an end of year party.
