PES 7th graders experienced their annual hands-on learning excursion to St. Christopher Camp in Barrier Island last week while 5th-6th graders visited Camp Thunderbird. Our 7th graders learned about local wildlife and its habitat, enjoyed seining in the estuary and wading through the salt marshes, investigated local ponds and lakes for amphibians, explored the beach and collected jellyfish, and played many team-building games and sports. The 5th-6th graders learned about arthropods by collecting ants, millipedes, and tiny spiders; worked in fishing pairs to catch and release 6 sunfish; played various games and completed an obstacle course; and ended with a big meal together before a campfire finish. #pesfieldtripfriday

Congratulations to our May Artists of the Month! Our 3rd grade winner created a mixed-media sculpture entitled “Twisted Tranquility” which was recently featured at the Mint Museum. His wire tree sculpture showcases exceptional talent and creativity, drawing inspiration from the beauty and tranquility of nature through meticulous craftsmanship and innovative use of materials. Our 7th grade winner was inspired by the renowned artist Romare Bearden in making her vibrant collage entitled “A New Break Through,” an interdisciplinary collaboration project with Humanities that showcases a masterful blend of imagery, symbolism and storytelling. Thank you to Pleasant Mill Pediatric Dentistry for sponsoring this program. #peswelldonewednesday
