Red Mill and Hunterdon Art Museum
This is a photo taken of the 5th grade trip to Clinton through a grant submitted by the Team 5 teachers and approved through the ATEF. The students had an amazing day at the Red Mill and Hunterdon Art Museum. They had so much fun learning about the local history of the mill and also exploring the grounds. At the Art Museum, the students were able to view an artist's showcase which featured encaustic art which originated in Ancient Egypt. The students were also able to carve their names and nationalities into clay arches that will be fired and hopefully added to the other 1,000+ arches that comprise the threads of the exhibit.

A Starry Night
A Starry Night event was planned for the 7th grade to show the Alexandria community what they learned from their Astronomy Unit in science.  Alexandria families from Pre-K to 8th grade were invited to the after school event.  The New Jersey Astronomers Association and the Amateur Astronomy Club were also invited to share their expertise of the constellations, bring extra telescopes, and show the students a wide variety of experiences outside of the classroom.  With such telescopes, students could see the craters of the Moon, solar flares of the Sun, the rings on Saturn, the spots on Jupiter, nebulas light years away, and thousands of other astronomical objects in the sky.
