    Hiking Hawk Mountain: a rite of passage

    October 3, 2015

    An event usually starts with a good idea. Then, before you know it, that good idea becomes a tradition. In the sixth grade at Haverford, such an event is our annual field trip to Hawk Mountain. The event started in 2001 as a part of our science curriculum. The trip is an opportunity for our boys to observe and learn about raptors that migrate over the world famous bird sanctuary. However, over the past 15 years, we learned that viewing the migration is more difficult and often a rare occurrence, while hiking is a guarantee. We also learned the value of the hike in building a relationship with our newest Middle School students.

    Junior Kindergarten has expanded its room with a whimsical tree and bridge as the gathering place at which the day begins. The large, open room allows the boys to learn, work, and explore in the writing, math, and reading centers while the three Jr. K teachers work with them in small groups to build a love of learning and sense of camaraderie. Assistant teacher Mrs. Innocent gives us the scoop on the new space.
