Dining Room Refurbishment
Following up on the addition of French doors, new paneling and serving stations in the summer of 2013, we will be installing a new floor and new furniture in the Dining Room during the summer of 2015.
New Lower School Playground
Starting this spring, lower and upper school students will begin working together on idea generation and design thinking about a new playground for the lower school. We anticipate that this work will conclude by the start of school in September 2015 and that a community-based construction of the new playground will be completed before the holiday break.
Physics in the new SciBox
As part of the longer term plan to improve learning spaces for science and technology on campus, we will be redesigning our current physics lab to become a SciBox like the one currently in use for Harvard University’s conceptual physics program.
The team of Tom Curley, Director of Innovation and Technology, Dr. Brian Sullivan, our new physics teacher (see bio below) and Professor Logan McCarty from Harvard has been working on plans to create what will become a hub for student experimentation and learning in both conceptual and advanced physics, and home to new opportunities like our Lego Robotics program for middle school students as well.
Outer Doors to Coburn and Grover Cloisters
We will be replacing the outer entrance doors of both Coburn and Grover Cloisters that lead into the Honor Room.
