A group of students participated in Tenacre’s Math Club this afternoon, using their logic to solve puzzles and problems. Math Coordinator Regina Barrett presented these fifth and sixth graders with a series of challenges that they enthusiastically tackled.
The work of painter Lori Mehta is currently exhibited in the Tenacre Art Gallery (TAG). Ms. Mehta presented to Tenacre students at morning assembly today and then worked with first-graders in art class. Ms. Mehta is based in Wellesley and Cape Cod. While she always considered herself creative, she began her art career once her children - who all attended Tenacre - were older. One of her children, Emma, an alumna from the Class of 2009, helped her mom in the art room with first-graders.
Tenacre students learned lessons in gratitude and kindness today by listening to the motivational message of Kesley Tainsh, a 27-year-old survivor of two bouts with cancer and a stroke. Kelsey was invited to speak about Tenacre’s 2019-2020 Gratitude theme.
Tenacre’s sixth grade class spent the day at MIT today, participating in a structural engineering workshop that is helping prepare them for the Big Bridge Fail, a STEM project in science that starts this week. After the workshop and lunch, students had time to explore the museum on their own.
