Pasatiempo Writing Contest
We are thrilled to share that two of our 8th Graders won the Pasatiempo Teen Writing Contest! Hazel Hitt won for poetry, and Cora Thompson won for fiction! Congratulations and thank you both for sharing your voices! Thank you to our middle school English teacher Joseph Smith for inspiring another generation of talented writers.
Arts & Sciences Principal Todd Stiewing was featured in this Fordham Institute article about how schools are taking the challenge of covid and turning it into the opportunity of outdoor learning. Let’s get kids outside! Learning is an adventure!
Get a Glimpse of Wintercomes
Our annual Wintercomes celebration is an opportunity for students across the grades to present their learning to family, teachers, friends, and community members in an authentic way. Students spend the fall semester diving deeply into their learning expeditions with their classmates, and developing projects that they then present at Wintercomes. Local filmmaker Arturo Anzures visited our school during Wintercomes for the past two years and created this short video that beautifully shows the magic of this event that is unique and essential to the Arts & Sciences experience.
Senator Heinrich inspired by Arts & Sciences students
Senator Martin Heinrich visited our school this spring and spoke with students about issues related to climate change. See the video of his speech on the Senate floor on July 8, 2019, and read his Op-Ed in the Santa Fe New Mexican.
Here’s an excerpt from the Op-Ed:
“Last month, I sat down with some of these young leaders in a classroom at the Santa Fe School for the Arts & Sciences for a discussion on how we should confront the climate crisis. I was impressed with the students’ depth of knowledge on climate science and their observations of how climate change is already impacting their daily lives. Their eagerness for action at both the local and global level gave me great hope.”
