In August, Head of School Chris Elliot received an ALS ice bucket challenge from a Tenacre second grader. Mr. Elliot decided to enlist the help of sixth graders to come up with a “creative” plan to carry out the challenge. During recess today, sixth graders were happy to pour two buckets of ice over Mr. Elliot’s head while the entire student body watched and cheered. Afterwards, Mr. Elliot challenged Tenacre students to earn money doing chores or use their allowance or to donate to a charitable cause.

Tenacre’s Student Council issued a “zero waste” challenge to all students at lunchtime in October. This week, Student Council is weighing all of the food waste from everyone’s plate. Yesterday, students and staff left 4.4 pounds of waste. Today, they left 7 pounds. The goal of the week is for students to eat all of the food on their plate—leaving a “clean” plate when they were finished.

A trio of musicians performed at Tenacre this morning for students. They played music from around the world, showing students on a map where the music originated. Students were invested in the performance and enjoyed participating.
