It all started with an egg. Well – an egg, and some videos on how packages of supplies can be safely airdropped into disaster areas without any damage. Seizing the opportunity offered by teacher Jeannine Wilson to experiment and learn more, our Middle School STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) students, set about to recreate the scenario through a series of trials.

Google has its own team of "doodlers" making its homepage designs, but every year, a student drawing is featured, putting the spotlight on communities across the nation. In determining the winner, Google pulls from entries into its "Doodle for Google" contest, and even though students from the US Virgin Islands aren't eligible to participate, our seventh graders this week still decided to give it a go, creating doodles that spoke to the significance of VI-Puerto Rico Friendship Day and the bond between the two island nations.

How do we make people feel seen and valued at Antilles? It's a simple question - but sometimes looking at things through a simple lens can help build bigger skills, such as being able to listen to others and value their perspectives, according to Dr. Liza Talusan, who led discussions with students and faculty last week on how we can create and be a more inclusive community.

In her office, Upper School Counselor Erin Salzbrun '05 has a wall of post-it notes with aspirations written on them and a sign on top that simply says "take what you need." The wall is full on Mondays, but as students come throughout the week and pluck them off, you'll begin to see holes and then, by Friday, it's often empty. Read more here...

Over more than three decades at Antilles, Verian Tuttle has worn many hats. Starting out as a substitute teacher, she then became a fixture in our Early Learning Center before putting her background in school psychology to good use as our Lower School Counselor. "For me, it's just about making students feel good and connected, and supporting teachers in the classroom," she shared. To achieve that, Verian encourages open discussion at home and on campus about the importance of having good mental health - which, at a Lower School level, often translates into simply reducing stress and anxiety for students so they can focus and interact positively with one another.

Unique to our Upper School program is the philosophy that planning for the future doesn't start in your senior year. Nor does it begin with thinking about what college you want to go to, or what major you are going to pick. Instead, students are encouraged to think intentionally when they transition to Upper School about the kind of person they want to be, the leadership opportunities they want to pursue, and even which community service options can best engage and inspire in them a true interest in giving back.

Removing boundaries and bringing joy to the creation process is pretty important, say Lower School/Upper School art teacher Jamie Hartzell and Early Learning Center art teacher Leslie Penther. Sure, learning the concepts means you have to play by some rules - but one of them isn't having to make something that may be considered conventionally beautiful. Read more...

Between the Fine Arts Festival, mini-concertettes in the Courtyard, and our Spring Concert, Antilles' Director of Bands Brandon Reburn offers his students time for composing, practicing, and actually playing their instruments. But there is still a gap he is hoping to fill: adding music to school spirit and athletic events, which, as a former marching band leader, is close to his heart. Read More...
