Going off to Newbold College for the British Culture Study Tour, I had no idea what a fantastic time I was going to have. Yes, I knew I was going to see new places and learn new things, but I got so much more than just that. I got to meet people from all over the world and interact with them on a daily basis, try new foods, make new friends, and create deeper connections with the friends I already had on the trip. On top of that, each day of the trip was packed with trips to places all over the United Kingdom including London, Wales, Brighton, Oxford, and Windsor. A few of my favorite things that we did on the trip were afternoon tea in the most quintessential English village, a visit to Stonehenge, and getting to see Phantom of the Opera in London. Overall, it was such a fun trip full of experiences, people, and memories I will have for life!

It was a sunny, warm day--perfect for the annual elementary Field Day. Pine Tree and Forestdale students in grades PreK-6 gathered into six teams to start the morning off with some group challenges. They did relays that involved things like running, cup stacking, and carrying water. After lunch, students rotated with their groups through six different stations where they played volleyball and did other activities together. It was a great day!
Students form the Academy Public Speaking class read to the elementary students.
After studying about the American Revolution, and the events leading up to it, students from grades 5 & 6 traveled to Boston to experience some of the sights they had learned about. The students enjoyed visiting the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum, the Minute Man Statue, The Old North Church (which included a private tour of the steeple and the crypt below), as well as Paul Revere's House. To cap off their day, they enjoyed a tasty treat from Mike's Bakery in the North End.
