As part of the 7th Grade's Age of Exploration block, the students had a very special and fun field trip. They embarked on a sailing ship that was very similar to the ones used in the 1700s and learned hands-on skills like hoisting sails, tying knots and nautical terms.

At the end of the first quarter of Eurythmy studies, the 12th grade students offered a wonderful performance, bringing a poem and a piece of music by Jean Sibelius to life. Eurythmy is visible speech and visible music.
