Showcasing Arts, Athletics & Innovation

On January 19, Tabor admissions will host our annual winter open house that has typically focused on Arts and Athletics. This year, we are adding innovation to the list of programs. This will be a great way to start the New Year, and to provide an opportunity for prospective families to continue learning about Tabor.
Tabor is well known for our strong programs in arts, music, and athletics, but we hoped to shine a spotlight on another area of our program that we are less publicly known for, our burgeoning Maker’s Lab. Over the last few years, our courses in engineering and computer science have made the Maker Lab a hub of activity and innovation, and one of our most popular offerings.
Students in our engineering classes have collaborated with our Marine Science faculty to build equipment used in our research of Sippican Harbor. A “seabot” (our school by the sea ROV) was created two years ago through a Lemelson/MIT grant, and each year is refined to improve upon its original design, adding new probes as needed. In addition, students are making an electronic drift buoy that can be released into the ocean, track currents and other conditions, and transmit the data back to marine scientists at Tabor.
Beyond the Maker Lab, prospective students are invited to meet coaches, watch a rehearsal of our winter musical, Heathers: The Musical, and/or create an art project with our arts faculty in the Braitmayer Arts Center. After, we hope everyone will stay on to cheer on the Seawolves during their afternoon athletic contests starting between 2:00 and 4:00 PM. Girls’ squash and hockey, wrestling (co-ed), and boys’ hockey and basketball are home.
Learning about the programs and the people who will be part of a student’s experience outside the classroom is an essential component of the secondary school search process. Often, students are able to maximize their success and experience within the classroom when their experience in all other aspects of their life on campus is happy and filled with robust opportunities and strong mentorship and friendship. This is why this event is so important to our school, and why we look forward to it every year.
All in all, we are looking forward to an active and creative day, full of bold ideas, camaraderie and fun. Come join us on January 19 in the Stroud Academic Center, 242 Front Street. Registration begins at 12:00 PM. Come see what piques your interest in Tabor.

  • Community Weekend

  • Saturday School Day with Dennis Febo

    On our first Saturday School Day of the new year, we will enjoy working with Dennis Febo, a guest speaker who will help us raise social consciousness through his talk and various small group activities following. 

    Audiences describe Dennis Febo as 'Genuine,' 'Engaging,' and 'Extraordinary.'  "He delivered a powerful message in a very humble manner, and I think that was what I appreciated most," said a student who attended one of his workshops.
    A native of Brooklyn, NY, Febo was raised in many different parts of the United States and Puerto Rico. Through experiences with the disparities of poverty, racism, and prejudice, Febo had an early goal to help people reach their true potential through education on social consciousness and culture.
    Beginning in high school, Febo targeted youth in disadvantaged communities through art, music, and entertainment. Knowing youth internalize messages provided through the arts, he hoped to explore the social conditions in which students are a part, and how they could overcome them through unity and work.
    Continuing this work in college through Lambda Sigma Upsilon Latino Fraternity, and after as he earned a Masters of Arts in Humanities at the University of Buffalo, Febo found that his speaking abilities were able to draw the attention of many, allowing him to organize on larger social levels as he discussed topics including race, ethnicity, the mind, identity, and social consciousness. Today, he does this work through his consulting group Guazabara Insights. http://www.guazabarainsights.com/
    We look forward to spending a morning with Dennis Febo and learning from his insights!
