Photos from Lower School Bulb Planting

A wonderful tradition at Princeton Day School is the bulb planting project in the Lower School each fall. Our PreK, K, and 1 grade students put on their gardening gloves, get out the trowels and, with the help of their parents and teachers, plant daffodils, tulips, and other bulbs in the ground for a wonderful show of flowers in the spring. Here are some photos from today’s planting

Monarch Butterflies at Princeton Day School

Upper School Science teacher Barbara Maloney organized a cross-divisional project focusing on monarch butterflies, which culminated in a butterfly releasing party on Friday, October 10, with at least 150 students from all 3 divisions and a beautiful cake decorated with butterflies baked by our own Chef Brian Mochnal. Mrs. Maloney worked closely with Interim Head of Middle School Alesia Klein, who has been a part of Monarch Watch, an education, conservation, and research program based at the University of Kansas that focuses on the monarch butterfly, its habitat, and its spectacular fall migration for many years. Mrs. Maloney said of the project, “Last year, our mission to help the monarchs migrate to Mexico, became a part of the curricula in the 5th grade with Maryann Ortiz and Linda Rubens, in 9th grade Biology with Carlos Cara, myself, and Carrie Norin, and in Upper School Energy Systems with Brian Mayer. All of the students received butterfly larvae and took care of them, cleaning their containers and feeding them milkweed, for close to a month. They all watched and documented their metamorphosis from caterpillars into beautiful butterflies. Before their butterflies were released on their journey, each butterfly was carefully tagged on its wing, with an ID number. All of the data sheets will be sent to Monarch Watch and we will be notified if and where our butterflies have been found.” Garden Coordinator Pam Flory had an important role in the program by planting three large fields of milkweed for the hungry caterpillars. In the Lower School, 1st grade teacher Karen Pike prepared her students by reading a book about monarchs before attending the party. At the party, a 5th grade student read the a Native American Legend about butterflies and the PDS girls a cappella, led by Brooke Heap and Adina Triolo, sang a traditional song, “Goin’ Down To Mexico (The Monarch Butterfly Song).” Mrs. Maloney remarked, “We then released the butterflies and as we watched them fly far up into the sky we were all amazed by their breathtaking beauty.” Here are some photos from the event on the Colross Lawn.

Princeton Day School Presents “Confluence: Contemporary Indian Art” at the Anne Reid ’72 Art Gallery

The Anne Reid ’72 Art Gallery at Princeton Day School is pleased to present the “Confluence: Contemporary Indian Art,” curated by Meena Dadha, on view beginning today, October 14 through November 14, 2014. There will be an opening reception with an informal discussion of Indian culture with Sumit Ganguli on Saturday, October 25, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. This event is free and open to the public. “Confluence: Contemporary Indian Art” is a well-balanced selection of contemporary art that represents the best of modern art in India today. This collection was brought to the United States by Ms. Dadha of Prakrit Arts, Chennai, India. The artists in this exhibition represent many different styles while maintaining their Indian identity. Some artists work in realism, some are modernist, some idealistic and some abstract. Gallery Director Jody Erdman noted, “We are truly fortunate to have such a rare collection of contemporary Indian art on view at Princeton Day School.”
