Week in Pictures, May 16-21

The Pre-primary boys minded their Ps and Qs (and all the other letters before and after!) in May when they presented their play, “Browning A-Z: An Alphabetical Journey Through Our Year in Pre-primary.” Audience members were impressed with the boys’ projection and preparation, finding it hard to believe that the 2015-16 school year has nearly ended and these boys will soon move on to Grade One! Head of Lower School Laurie Gruhn expressed her thanks to all the parents and teachers who helped make the production such a success.

The Upper School Chorus performed at a May 17 reception to welcome incoming Pre-primary parents. The boys sang "Wake Freshmen Wake!" (from The Yale Songbook), "Bonse Aba" (Zambian Song) and "Rollin' on the Ohio."

One of our talented Form IV musicians (center) played the flute in the InterSchool Orchestra (ISO) Symphony Band at Jazz at Lincoln Center on May 18. The ISO Symphony is one of the leading youth orchestras in the New York City area.

 

The fifth graders spent two days at the Brooklyn Navy Yard workshop of Construction Kids where they built Portuguese Caravel models as part of the class’s study of the Age of Exploration. Click here to watch the trip as explained by Mr. Ragsdale and fifth grade boys.

On May 20 the fifth grade boys play a spirited game of dodgeball against their fathers in the Upper Gym. According to Coach West, the boys won the "warm-up game" and dads won when it counted!
