The students and teachers at The New School started a four-part dinner series as a fundraiser for their intensive programming.  The dinners planned by each advisory and include a five course meal, beverages, and unique themes for entertainment.  The first dinner was a season-specific Harvest Dinner, consisting of locally grown produce and fish.  Jason Romagnoli, of Luniere, graced the stage with his sweet melodies.  Dinner two took on a bit more of a twist with a Murder-Mystery Theme.  Attendees were given parts to play as they socialized and dined, all while trying to figure out the one who committed the crime.  The most recent dinner was a lively gathering of Trivia Night.  So much excitement ensued, that the students decided to make the fourth and final dinner of the season another Trivia Theme!  If you haven’t made it to one of these dinners yet, be sure to reserve your spot for Saturday, March 10.  Seats are limited!

Intensives:  Students plan, prep, and study a topic through a three-week deep immersion.  This year, students will be participating in one of three options. As an extension of Pre-Columbian History taught last fall by Brad Lopes, one group will journey to Oaxaca, Mexico, as both a language and cultural immersion.  A second group will be travelling south to Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina, working on a farm and supporting relief efforts in the hurricane-devastated regions.  The final group will be staying local, participating in a physics-based intensive and creating a Rube Goldberg Machine.  To find out more about the trips, join us at our annual Silent Auction, Saturday, April 28 from 5pm-9pm at 40 Main Street in Biddeford, where students will present their experiences!
