New York City: Urban Studies
This year, we focused on the renaissance that has hit Brooklyn over the past couple of decades. Our focus has been the role of transportation in creating Brooklyn. We studied how the Atlantic Terminal has provided a hub for the new Barclays Arena and the residential project that it is part of.
For our trip, we visited the area around Barclays, Brooklyn Borough Hall and the New York City Transit Museum. Students were able to experience the transformations that they had been examining in class.
SWS Farming Initiative
This year, for the Day of Service and Learning, we added to our physical plant, building two hoop houses where we were able to grow a late crop of lettuce. We also built two compost bins that will help us to improve the quality of our soil and therefore our produce.
In the Spring, we will once again produce food for our Senior Send Off.
