Our 3 week old chicks are growing fast, and they look more like baby hawks than chicks. You can also watch them until Friday at this 24 hour live feed: Three Week Old Chicks
On Wednesday, 5/4/16, the fifth grade class recited original and famous poems, culminating their study of poetry under the tutelage of their English teachers: Anna Himmelrich and Anne Carr. In anticipation of their poetry night, and in commemoration of playwright and poet William Shakespeare’s 400th anniversary, fifth graders studied the works of contemporary artist Robert Montgomery. Montgomery’s work follows a tradition of conceptual art that brings a poetic voice to the genre of text-art. He is best known for his billboard poems, light pieces, and fire poems.
