Week in Pictures, January 20-February 5

As part of the annual Interschool 10th grade trip, Browning sophomores spent three rewarding days at Frost Valley YMCA Camp in the Catskills, where they engaged in workshops concerning gender, equity and inclusivity with members of five other single-sex schools (Brearley, Chapin, Collegiate, Nightingale and Spence).

The Varsity Basketball Panthers earned their second win of the season on January 20, 54-50, against league opponent LFNY. The varsity squad spent the morning with the first and second graders, who attended the afternoon game to show their support!

On February 1 the second grade boys traveled to the Museum of the City of New York where they participated in a program that covered NYC's history from 1609-1898. The boys were able to examine artifacts and draw conclusions about how people have transformed the city from a trading post to the five-borough metropolis it is today.

ABC News political reporter Shushannah Walshe met with the fourth graders on February 2 and answered their questions about recent events in the news.

As part of their social studies unit on the Pilgrims’ arrival in the New World, a museum teacher from Plymouth Plantation visited the third graders. Dressed in character dating to the time period of the Mayflower’s arrival, she showed them artifacts from that era, which they examined in order to better appreciate life during those early days in America.

Lower School boys participated in the first-ever Read-A-Thon fundraiser on February 3, with proceeds to benefit Room to Read. The boys will each read for approximately 180-300 minutes in total. Room to Read operates in collaboration with Asian and African governments to develop literacy skills and provide supplies for libraries in these areas.

It was another great weekend for Browning Hockey, as the first grade Mites beat Riverbank on Saturday and St. David's on Sunday. The Mini Mites (first graders, Pre-primary and preschool siblings) won their two tournament games on Sunday against the Ice Cats and Ice Hawks.
