I am so happy to announce the birth of my baby girl, Audrey Lee, to my beloved Quest family. She was born on January 19th, 2012 at 1:30pm and weighed a tiny 5Ibs 11oz and 19″. Two months later, she is now 11Ibs and 22″! We are deeply in love with her and hope to introduce her to you all one day.
Last Friday, the Upper Elementary Class created one-of-a-kind, handmade, felt puppets to be included in our upcoming auction. Check out their handi-work!
Lower Elementary studied the different parts and types of mountains and yesterday, the children were very excited to make their own mountain out of clay. Trish guided them in art, to create a clay mountain, then they labeled all of the different parts of their mountain. Next week they will start studying volcanoes.
On Thursady night March 8, the middle school class presented a dramatis personae performance based on conversations imagined between the founding fathers. The setting was a tea party at Dolly Madison’s house. Students discussed, in character, many of the issues that were important to the formation of a new nation.
Students also presented their independent research projects. The middle school has spent the majority of the year studying the effects of water quality on local ecology. For the science fair, students were tasked with extending what they had learned and exploring a related topic more deeply. Student research was excellent and adhered to a strict scientific rigor. While not all results were what was expected, everyone found a great deal of success.
