Kathryn Otoshi, the acclaimed children’s author of “Zero,” “One,” and “Two,” visited Tenacre this morning to share her stories with every Tenacre student. Otoshi talked about important messages of tolerance, bullying, and standing up for yourself and others during her talks with students.

Fourth graders performed their play this morning, loosely based on the book, "Market Day," by Eve Bunting. In Ireland, Market Day happens once a month, and it is as much a social event as a shopping one. Tess and Finn are excited to go, and try to figure out how they will spend their Market Day penny. Along the way, they see some sheep, a rambunctious dog, a horse, the lace woman, and more. Will they see Madame Savannah, the fortune teller? If so, what will she tell Finn about whether he will grow taller?

Tenacre’s environmental club (called RAG – Random Acts of Greenness) helds its first meeting during lunch today. More than 40 students from fourth, fifth, and sixth grade attended. Students kept busy with a variety of activities. Some students harvested sunflower seeds from the Tenacre garden, removing them from the sunflowers and soaking them in salt water. Others tallied the amount of trash that was collected at the beach cleanup a few weeks ago, and a third group participated in a trash pickup on campus. All in all, it was a productive meeting!
