This week a group of WSB’s younger students created a piece of abstract art that would have made Wassily Kandinsky proud. They have humbly entitled the piece “Fort.”
“Fort” is constructed of discarded wood, rain water, earth, clay, melted ice, dirt, and sandbox sand. It is currently available for sale at the low starting bid of $1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 x 10 (to the infinity power). All proceeds will benefit the Waldorf School of Baltimore. The lucky high bidder will have “Fort” recreated in their personal living room by a team of WSB students. Please contact their agent, Ms. Edna Emmet, for further details.
Last week, Ms. Jerram’s 4th grade visited The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore. Highlights were the giraffe and monkey houses (and of course the giant tree slide), but the feature presentation was the phenomenal new penguin exhibit. Students spent a great deal of time studying and drawing the penguins. The trip was exceptionally exciting due to the surprise snow flurrying. Please enjoy these photos:
Yesterday, our school transformed into a winter wonderland of extraordinary proportions. During recess, our students (and teachers) were able to explore the mesmerizing metamorphosis that occurred during the night before. Some students let melting icicles drip into their mouths from the ice-encased branches, while others slid across thousands of frozen blades of grass.
