It is integral to a child’s development that they have a person in their life in whom they can confide. Having an outlet through which to vent or rave is an excellent way for children to build self-advocacy skills and make them better at articulating their feelings and opinions. At Sanford, our counselors are always able to provide that outlet for students who need it. Learn more about Sanford’s school counseling program: https://sanford.link/2QQs0og.

Attend the free Community Screening of Angst tonight at 6:30 PM. Find out more at https://sanford.link/2QUH1oS.

How do you make sledding in the snow an engineering lesson? John Bell's kindergartners discussed friction before designing their cardboard and duct tape sleds. They learned how the duct tape causes less rubbing against the snow which allows the sled to slide better than only using cardboard. He also demonstrated how applying the tape across the snow causes drag, while applying the tape parallel to the slope reduces drag to help make the sleds slide faster down the hill. It looks like the students had fun testing their sleds!

Poetry is as essential in academics and in leadership development. Our Upper School students just completed a study on understanding and reciting poetry using the Poetry Out Loud: National Recitation Contest. We culminated the poetry study with a competition held last week. Congratulations to our Upper School winners-Ali Rosenthal '19: 1st place, Jessica Ip '19: 2nd place, Camille Decker '20: 3rd place. Good luck to Ali who will compete in the state semifinals February 5th.

Find out why Sanford is special from a Sanford student:
"There’s a culture of acceptance that is uncommon in high school. They accept one another. It’s not about conformity — we’re breaking stereotypes. It’s about being yourself and doing what you want to do.”

Kudos to our teachers who will be presenting at the upcoming Lausanne Learning Institute STEAM Conference in Washington, D.C hosted by National Cathedral School (NCS). Heather Foucault Camm will be presenting a session on ethics and philosophy. She will also present with Beth Whipple and Jim Barnaby on Claim, Evidence, and Reasoning (CER) Framework. Way to go!
