Spanish Theater Performance

By Bénédicte Brouder

This morning, the Middle School students from the Spanish Theater Club performed an adaptation of the Three Little Pigs in Spanish, for the enjoyment of the preschoolers. The adaptation was humorous, inventive, and fun.

What is best than a theater project, which students embraced and took complete ownership of, in order to put language in action?

Congratulations to Chloé, Lilou, Kaylie, Jimmy, Nathalie, Emilia, Nolween, and their Spanish teacher, Ms. Patino for their creativity, hard work and efforts, good acting, and elegant and balanced modesty! It was simply perfect.

Integrating 3D printing in the learning experience

By Bénédicte Brouder

François Tregouët recently presented the SDFAS 3D printer to the students of the Math club. The goal for students is to learn how to effectively integrate 3D printing in their learning process by effectively building/making elements/objects.

This is a great opportunity to apply mathematics to 3D geometry, and also to calculate costs and times of production.

Students will use their coding skills to define the structure and shape of geometric solid shapes. They will also calculate volumes and plastic needed in order to 3D print.

We plan to build a “Menger sponge”, working in collaboration with the students enrolled in the Maker Space Elective: our goal is to fix the damaged foosball table, which is in the Middle School recess area.

Students are very excited to discover this new technology!

Visite à la ferme – classes de 6ème

By Bénédicte Brouder


Mardi 1er mai, les élèves ont eu l’opportunité de visiter une ferme organique pédagogique, Wild Willow Farm. Répartis en petits groupes, ils ont appris l’intérêt de la culture organique, comment les fermiers ont pensé cette ferme pour protéger l’environnement. Ils ont appris l’intérêt d’avoir des fleurs entre les cultures, d’avoir des chèvres dans la ferme. Les fermiers font leur propre élevage de vers de terre pour leur compost.Toutes ces notions sont dans notre curriculum de 6th grade en sciences françaises.
