  • Dalton Science Reserves, Conserves and Serves

    Anyone who has moved knows that it is a perfect time to take stock of stuff that is necessary and stuff that is not, which leads to deciding what to do with the leftovers. When the Science department moved from the 4th Floor to 11 and 12, they faced that same dilemma. They had perfectly good stuff that they no longer needed. That's when Science Teacher Evie Harrison spear-headed a resourceful initiative to donate items no longer needed by the Science department to schools in greater need.

  • Puppets Confront Anthropocentrism in HS Fall Play

    by Bob Sloan
    Our planet is currently hurtling on an unwavering trajectory toward mass extinction. And while every day we accrue more information and data, more facts, figures, and charts explaining how this is happening and what the consequences are, we curiously cannot seem to invest ourselves fully in slowing the process down. Perhaps this is because data and information reinforce the very construct that is at at the root of the problem -- our anthropocentric approach to planet.

  • Mandarin Students Practice Their Skills

    On a beautiful and sunny Tuesday in May, our Mandarin 3HS class took a field trip to Flushing, Queens. Our first stop was the Hua Lian Tsu Hui Temple where we were lucky to witness the morning rituals and prayers performed by members of the temple’s clergy. The temple was beautifully decorated with intricate gold decor and sculptures of important gods and goddesses. During our tour of the temple, we learned about which god corresponds to the year we were born (like a horoscope). The temple provided us, as a class, with a more realistic understanding of Chinese culture because we were able to witness everyday people in their religious environment.
