Students from all three divisions have created an interdisciplinary exhibit of field guides to the Long Island Sound in partnership with Hara Woltz, who was this year’s Hartwell Visiting Fellow. Ms. Woltz is both an artist and scientist whose work addresses the destruction and conservation of ecological systems through a variety of visual media. She spent a week with students in October visiting classes, showcasing her inspiring work, and taking students from multiple classes to the beach to observe the natural landscape and document their observations through poetry, photography, and other media. 

The exhibit will be on display in the McGrath Gallery during Parent Teacher Conferences and we encourage you to stop by to see it when you grab your schedules and a cup of coffee in the morning.
