Special thanks to Madi from Mountain Gate Tea for a beautiful tea ceremony today, immersing our lower school students in the wonders of ancient China. The Pu-erh tea, carefully sourced from 1000-year-old trees, was a wonderful way to connect students to the same brew enjoyed by the Chinese for centuries.

Students in 5/6 science have spent a majority of class time over the last few weeks designing a year-long experiment and collecting data to help them answer the question: “What is the ecological impact that we have when we play on the playground”? To answer this question, students have been collecting data within the new playground extension, the old playground space on the hill, and the area outside the fence. Stay tuned later in the year as students reveal their findings!

Science is sweet! 🍫🔬 Our first and second graders had a blast this week as they explored the fascinating world of geology by taking core samples of different candy bars. This activity was designed to prepare them for their outdoor experiential education trip this week that focuses on the rich mining history of the Telluride region. Tomorrow students will take a jeep tour up to Tomboy Mine to continue their #loveofllearning! #telluridemountainschool #telluride #science

Last Friday, upper school Freeride Committee students got some freshies at Silverton! The fresh powder, beautiful scenery, and amazing crew made for an unforgettable day. Annually, in celebration of completing the Free Ride Committee programming, upper school students ski at Silverton Mountain. This celebration allows students to explore new terrain and learn how to ski backcountry safely from professional guides. #skiing #backcountry #silvertonmountain #telluridemountainschool
