First graders performed their class play, Borreguita and the Coyote. It takes place in a clover patch at the edge of the mountains in Ayutla, Mexico. A little lamb, Borreguita, tries to trick the coyote so he does not eat her. Such tricks include convincing the "strong" coyote to hold up a ledge of rock at the edge of the mountain while the lamb runs away.

Tenacre kicked off Gwyn Loud Science Week yesterday with workshops for fourth and fifth grades. This morning, pre-kindergarten and kindergarten participated in their workshops; and tomorrow, second, third, and sixth graders will take part. This annual tradition provides special, hands-on sciences classes for every student at Tenacre. This year, PKers learned about dinosaurs and paleontology, while kindergartners worked with the science with bubbles. First graders learned to build simple structures; second and sixth graders worked with physical matter; third graders investigated light; fourth graders learned how to build a magnetic levitation device; and fifth graders tested windmills and their effectiveness with different variables.
