On Wednesday, July 25, 2018, Primary children will visit the Princeton Art Museum. The purpose of the trip is three-fold: to expose the children to real art, to teach them art museum etiquette, and to inspire their creativity.
On this day, students will depart from school at 9:30 am and arrive back to school at 11:15 am. They will have lunch upon their return.
We will not be visiting the gift shop. Please do not send money with your child. The trip will take place rain or shine. If it is raining, the children will need raincoats; please do not bring umbrellas.
What to bring/wear:
- Wear comfortable walking shoes (no flip flops)
- Wear raincoats as needed (no umbrellas)
Please submit your permission by Monday, July 23rd.
Last year, Eliza Hammer, our Ecobinding and Elementary Afterschool teacher, led the children in creating beautiful mandalas to celebrate peace and individuality. The images were so beautiful many parents and children wanted to do something more with these. Scarves were made and sold at the annual online auction and a quilt was designed to hang in the Admissions meeting room as a talking point in sharing the unique creativity of each child. The quilt will be hung next week in the Dogwood Conference Room. Stop by to see it!
