One of my favorite questions is: "What does a day in the life of a librarian look like?" In addition to being a quiet spot to study and learn, the library is also a shared community space where students can gather for meetings and lead group discussions. Today was a good example of the many ways a librarian works with student scholars and researchers at The Hewitt School.
As Hewitt guides girls to become the bold leaders of tomorrow, we have been expanding sustainability and environmental literacy as a core component of our curriculum and community practices. Our middle school girls have great concern for the health of the planet and are discovering a genuine sense of purpose by actively working to implement sustainability initiatives throughout their school community.
Hewitt's seventh and eighth grade Shakespeare Workshop offers a unique opportunity for small but mighty groups of young actors to gain confidence by experiencing all the steps necessary to give life to the Bard's 400 year old plays. The students wrestle with the meanings of the texts, but even more importantly they wrestle with a deeper understanding of metaphors present in Shakespeare's writing.
Hewitt Athletics saw an increase in the number of skilled and determined students participating in fall sports, and it was clear that our middle and upper school teams worked their hardest this season no matter the outcome. The positivity and excitement of the season shone through at each practice and game and it was clear that Hewitt athletes were proud to be a part of their respective teams.
