Marine Invasive Species Monitoring

Pictured above: Cristina Kennedy and Gary Sousa consult on which organisms are present on a floating bumper attached to Tabor’s boat dock.
This summer, two Tabor teachers are exploring their own lifelong love of learning and getting a little salty at the same time. Tamar Cunha (science) and Gary Sousa (history) have learned how to aid the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management in its MIMIC Project.  MIMIC, or the Marine Invasive Monitoring and Information Collaborative, represents a partnership between the CZM and groups of citizen scientists who want to gather vital data about the distribution of marine invasive species along the New England coast.  

Earlier in the summer, Tamar and Gary met with Cristina Kennedy, the Coastal Habitat and Water Quality Specialist for CZM, to learn protocols and gain familiarity with the species under observation.  Each month, Tabor docks will be checked for a set of 18 different key species, and the intention is for this work to continue through the fall, with students in the Marine Field Ecology classes becoming trained to participate as well. 

Careful data collection is vital to public and private scientific organizations, and Tabor is proud to partner with yet another institution that can benefit from the skills and knowledge that our students and faculty bring to the table.

  • School Photo Day

    Tabor Academy has granted CoffeePond Photography permission to be on campus to take official student school photos on Monday, October 26. The photo session in the Fish Center’s field house will be a contact-less event. Photographers will be masked at all times and will maintain a minimum distance of 8 feet from students. Students will wear a mask until seated for the photo and will need to adhere to physical distancing while in the Fish Center. 
     
    Students will be assigned a designated time to have their photo taken based on their academic schedule. Students should check their emails for their appointed time slot and additional details regarding COVID protocol as the photo session date approaches. 
     
    Students, especially seniors, should be in more formal dress attire as these photos will be used for the yearbook. Boys, please wear a jacket and tie. 
  • Back-to-School Night - Module B

    On the evening of October 28th, Module B teachers (students current classes--blocks E, F, G and H) will host a “Back to School Night” opportunity via Zoom to give families a chance to meet the classroom teachers, put a face with the name, and learn a little about what is happening in each of their child’s classes.

    Please save the date for the evening of 10/28 and look for more information soon. 
    You do not need to register for this offering.
  • Virtual Fall Family Weekend

    The traditional Family Weekend will not be held on campus this Fall, and will instead be reimagined using virtual technologies for our families to learn about their students’ experience. The Parent Engagement team is developing opportunities for parents/guardians to connect with each other and with the school and will be announcing them soon. If you have ideas for virtual or remote events, please share them with us by emailing Liz Cheney lcheney@taboracademy.org.
