    Vote for the CANterbury VolCANo at CANstruction

    The High School Projects in Engineering class spent the day building a volcano out of canned beans and potatoes. The hot lava running down one side is canned ravioli. The beach surrounding the volcano is made of bags of brown rice. Manwich tree trunks support lime Kool-aid palm fronds. And everything is surrounded by wavy water made of...bottled water. The volcano also erupts steam every few minutes, thanks to a machine hidden in its crater. The volCANo, which is part of the annual CANstruction competition, now must stand the test of time. Literally, it has to prove it is structurally sound by not collapsing overnight. While it takes a day to build the structure, the students spent weeks planning their design in class.

    Over and over we hear from alumni that the heavy emphasis on writing at Canterbury in the high school years more than prepared them for writing in college. But an emphasis on writing is not just in the High School. It also exists in the Lower School and Middle School, where teachers work with their students to lay the foundation and prepare them for Canterbury's High School writing curriculum. The annual Lower School Writers' Conference is just one way the teachers work with students on their creative thinking and writing skills. "The Writers' Conference gives students the opportunity to showcase the stories they have worked so hard to write. It is a chance to put all the skills they've practiced during the school year into a finished product," said Mrs. Corson, Grade 1 teacher. Each child in Lower School writes a story in his or her classroom. The students also have the chance to write an independent story at home. The finished stories are read by judges who choose two winners from each classroom, two independent winners from each grade level, as well as winners from stories written in special area classrooms, such as the Lower School Library. The top award is given to a third or fourth grader that writes a longer story, or short chapter book. This is the Hamlin Award, given in honor of Nancy Hamlin, (a beloved former second grade teacher). The judges are looking for stories that include good content, interesting characters, correct conventions and are creative. All winning stories are included in The Pencil Box, a school publication.
