Middle School students enjoyed their first art field trip of the year to the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach. Here, they were able to take a closer look at many masterpieces of painting and sculpture from different eras and genres of art. From Degas to Van Gogh to Augusta Savage and the contemporary works of Nigerian artist Njideka Akunyili Crosby, the students reveled in the colorful imagery of portraits, landscapes, bronze sculptures and mixed media pieces. When as
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the golf team will instead become a golf club starting Tuesday, February 16 from 3:45- 5 p.m. While the students will not be able to compete, they will gain experience and practice at the fundamental skills of the game.

The Second Grade had a wonderful time buying and selling items at the annual Goods and Services Fair held at the Fellowship Hall at the Lighthouse Campus on Friday morning. Students worked alone and in pairs to generate ideas for booths, preparing their items or services, and then taking turns managing the booth. And of course, they get to split the earnings!

Fifth graders have been experimenting with warm and cool color schemes. They created two separate color scheme paintings, cut them up, and then wove them together to examine the rhythm and mo
The Boys’ Basketball team fell just one point shy of making history, losing 32-33 to All Saints Academy. Despite holding the lead for much of the game, a three-point jumper in the last minute put the All Saints one up on the Sharks, and with no timeouts left, the Sharks were unable to get a good look at the basket in the final possessions. The Sharks were led by 8th grader Garrett F. with 12 points, and fellow classmate Josh J. snagged 7 steals. “They had a remarkable season,
Our bunnies have out dug their warren and now it is time for new digs! We have talked before about why rabbits dig but it is mostly just what they do, it's in their genes. It is one of the reasons we teach animal behavior in the garden. We learn that all species have different needs and behaviors, but food, water and comfortable housing remain pretty much the same for all of us. Back to our buns; we know that their desire to dig cannot exceed our desire to protect them from
