From Italy to France, Vietnam, and Japan this summer has seen many learning opportunities for our Seawolves. Continuing the theme of summer learning, ten Tabor students traveled to Costa Rica for an intensive scientific immersion experience with the Seeds of Change organization.
The excited travelers left for Costa Rica on July 30th and immediately introduced themselves to the professional university researchers with whom they would be working side-by-side. Wasting no time, the group jumped into their research projects, such as:
How does the amount of polysaccharides and nitrogen affect the growth rate of the fungus garden?
Which stage, if any, of the Caligo butterfly life cycle, contains the pathogen Bacillus thuringiensis?
Would worker ants accept larvae from other colonies without their queen and broods?
We look forward to welcoming the group home tonight after their educational adventure abroad and we also look forward to hearing more about their experiences when school starts up again in just a few weeks!
This summer three tabor families are hosting new family gatherings. New students and their families are invited to Pick A Party and get to know other new Tabor families. It is a great way to start off the school year with a few familiar faces. Click the Register button below. Proceed to Step 2 to view all party dates and locations and register for the gathering that is most convenient for you.
New International Students will be arriving throughout the day from 10:00 AM on. There is a meeting for new international students and their parents at 4:00 PM where they will meet advisors and dinner will follow at 5:45 PM. Orientation will continue through Tuesday, September 3, when the new international students will join with new and returning American students. Classes begin on September 4.
A day for alumni and parents to come back to Tabor to learn more about volunteering for our great school, and/or to cheer on the Seawolves during their afternoon contests. See the schedule of games here. We are still in the planning stages of this annual fall tradition and hope you will make plans to join us for a fun fall weekend at Tabor.
