Hands On Pond Science

Village School second graders enjoyed a walking field trip to Manning Pond to collect samples of macroinvertebrates. Back in their classroom they observed different species and tallied their specimens before returning them to the pond. They were excited to report their findings, from water boatmen to mayflies, to a handful of pollywogs.






Children are at the heart of all we do. We nurture a child's curiosity, ignite enthusiasm for exploring, develop tools for inquiry, for invention, for achievement. We welcome families into a community-wide collaboration to help our children grow into their best selves - responsible citizens and stewards of the greater world, makers of the future.
