Words from Dr. Carroll… Hershey Park

Seneca Academy’s Fox Singers and The Darnestown Community Band had another triumph at Hershey Park’s Music in the Parks last Saturday! Both groups won first place and Jeannette J. won the elementary soloist award. Thanks to Mrs. Mitchell for her attention and energy in leading these young singers and musicians. We are proud of our students!!


Seneca Spotlight: 5th Grade Trip

On Monday and Tuesday of this week, the Fifth Graders experienced an educational overnight field trip to the Anita Leight Estuary Center in Abingdon, MD.

The activities that the students participated in were connected to their Unit of Inquiry: Water.  Some of the educational adventures included testing the turbidity of the water, identifying fresh water fish from the local environment, canoeing in the fresh water marsh, learning how to follow a trail blaze, and becoming familiar with the birds and reptiles that inhabit the surrounding area.

The fifth-grade class now has a greater appreciation for the importance of the unique environment we call home, the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.
