Tomorrow (Wednesday, March 25) is Fine Arts Day at Awty!

We ask all Awty teachers, staff, and students to help us celebrate Fine Arts Day on Wednesday, March 25, by wearing an "art-themed" shirt – a treasured souvenir T-shirt from a memorable concert or play, one with a design that shows your wild side, or perhaps even one you made yourself. Set your inner artist free and show us by taking a selfie! Either post it on Facebook/Twitter or send it to Awty’s Director of Communications by 5:00 p.m. on March 25. If you post the selfie on Facebook/Twitter, make sure your post is set to public, tag Awty in your post, and use the hashtags: #awtyramslovefinearts and #celebratingfineartsday. Thanks for supporting the Arts at Awty!

Nous demandons à tous les enseignants, le personnel et les élèves d'Awty de nous aider à célébrer la Journée des beaux-arts le mercredi 25 mars en portant un t-shirt "à thème artistique" - un t-shirt souvenir d'un concert ou d'une pièce de théâtre mémorable, un t-shirt avec un dessin qui montre votre côté sauvage, ou peut-être même un t-shirt que vous avez fait vous-même. Libérez l'artiste qui est en vous et montrez-nous ce que vous savez faire en prenant un selfie! Postez le sur Facebook/Twitter ou envoyez-le à la directrice de communication d'Awty avant le 25 mars à 17 heures. Si vous publiez le selfie sur Facebook/Twitter, assurez-vous que votre message soit public, marquez Awty dans votre message et utilisez les hashtags : #awtyramslovefinearts et #celebratingfineartsday. Merci de soutenir les beaux-arts à Awty !

Awty Earns Green Sustainability Grant

Last spring, Awty's Sustainability Program Director Olivier Logette and STEAM Program Director Robert Sload partnered with Green Mountain Energy Sun Club to create a unique sustainability project that affects the entire Awty Community. The “Container Project” converts two 20’ shipping containers into fully functional growing facilities/laboratories.

Delivered during fall break, the hydroponics container is a ready-made, state-of-the-art hydroponics laboratory. The environmental controls ensure that optimal light, temperature, and nutrients maximize plant growth. The aquaponics container, currently under construction, is essentially a fish farm. Students in our newly created aquaponics/ hydroponics elective were actively involved with the design and flow modelling phases of the project.

The new solar array located on the PAAC roof powers both containers, giving the project a net zero energy footprint. While primarily a learning center, the vegetables and fish harvested from the project will serve as locally sourced ingredients for the dining halls on campus.

We have waited to announce the project until we had tangible elements to share with the community. Look for the containers between the PAAC and the Lower School. Please stay tuned for further updates as the project develops.
