The Center for American Archaeology at Kampsville spent a day in September with 3rd graders, teaching them how natives lived in the United States many years ago. They showed students how to flintknap (make arrowheads with a copper tool and chert, how to weave with cattail reeds and grind corn into cornmeal. Students also built a shelter on Lilly’s Field using found objects. The program included archaeology, ecology, biology and geology and challenged students to use their critical-thinking and problem-solving skills.
No Late Start for MS and US - Wednesday, February 1
In view of the lost instructional day Monday, the Middle and Upper Schools will run block schedules through the end of the week (C, D, E, and F rotations). This calendar change means that, except in the Lower School, we will NOT run a late-start Wednesday schedule on February 1. Lower School will still have a late start. Middle and Upper School classes will begin promptly at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, February 1.
