ART CLASSROOM: “As we ramp up our ceramics program at Park, this classroom will provide much needed space and tools for our expanded curriculum,” says Art Department Head Nancy Popper.
SCIENCE LAB: Moving from two to three science labs on the third floor will give each of our science faculty their own student-centered and developmentally-appropriate space for students in Grades 1-5.
SCIENCE LAB: Science teacher Meg Armour is excited to strengthen curriculum in cross-curricular ways: “I’ve thought about having students create phenological nature journals throughout the school year. It would be amazing to work with the art department to develop skills to draw the detail that they notice through scientific observation.”
WOODSHOP: The SPARK Campaign will illuminate our classrooms with daylight – an especially significant improvement for the Woodshop which will move from a dark corner of the third floor to neighbor the Makerspace, with easy indoor-outdoor access to the Outdoor Learning Garden.
WOODSHOP: The new Woodshop will foster collaboration by proximity for teachers Dean Laabs and Elaine Hamilton who look forward to bringing together traditional and modern forms of “making” within the Park curriculum.
