Student Art

Student art is on display in the halls and lobbies of the school. Here are a few examples, snapped on the fly by St. Dunstan, as he hurried off to his post.
Christ School's Fine Arts Department inspires students each year to discover new talents and practice known interests, and the output is impressive, including drawings and paintings, etchings, pottery, weaving, and photography.
Look for some of the school's artists' work in this spring's Struan literary magazine. Results of the annual competition and publication date to be announced soon. Look for it here, as St. Dunstan keeps his eye out for interesting events.

The NEW New Oak

Last fall we planted a replacement to the old oak tree, under which generations had gathered to get on the bus for trips. St. Dunstan blogged about it but had to lose the first blog and its posts. We lost the first new tree as well, but it was recently replaced by a healthy young specimen. It stands on the site of the old oak. Christ School friends can continue to gather at the oak tree, hopefully for generations to come.

A Boy's Best Friend

We had a Dog Day Morning today before leaving for our Easter holiday. I was able to meet Elvis, Bosley, Moe, Marley, Bosco , and more. If I missed your dog, let me know, and we can arrange a special visit. A blessed Easter to you and yours.

Touch of Home on Thursday

There's a nice touch of home coming to school tomorrow, Thursday, April 5. It's the last class day before the Easter Vacation, and I'm looking forward to the treat for the day. We'll be back in school next Wednesday. Happy Easter to everyone from St. Dunstan's.

Welcome to the new library weblog

This new weblog replaces the former "St. Dunstan's Notes" and begins here, in April of 2007. Check here (or subscribe to the blog's feed) for pictures of the campus and news of what's going on in the library and the school.

The picture is of the librarian action figure, available from Archie McPhee. It's modelled on Nancy Pearl of Book Lust fame. Nancy Pearl is a wise public librarian practicing in the Pacific Northwest and the author of Book Lust and the Booklust Wiki.

Your library owns one of these action figures, which is available for action by request at the front counter. The library, however, is not a "Shhhhh" place but rather an active place of learning, puzzle doing and chess playing. And lots of good books to check out.

Coming soon: the new "new oak tree."
