Maple Sugaring Lesson with Daisy Ingraham School

The faculty and students from the science department spent time in the Sugar Shack teaching 1st graders from Daisy Ingraham Public School all about the process of maple sugaring. After tapping 36 trees, the finished product was filtered twice, boiled down, and bottled. Finally, the elementary students were able to taste OA's delicious pure maple syrup.

Chinese New Year Celebration

Happy Chinese New Year! We're celebrating with Chef Dave's Asian cuisine, Mrs. Gilman's paper dragons and cooking lessons from Mr. McKibbens. McKibbens spent the last decade teaching history in China. He has since joined the OA community and yesterday, designated food stations in the dining hall featuring DIY dumplings and hot pot meals. Half spicy/ half mild. It was a big hit with sliced beef, lotus root, sweet potatoes, tofu skin, shrimp, white cabbage and fish balls. Good winter food!

Thanks to Mrs. Neale and the foreign language department for coordinating this celebration!
