Chesapeake Academy Celebrates MLK Jr.
To celebrate the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy of service to his community and his nation, Head of School, Debbie Cook addressed Chesapeake Academy's student body to review King's contributions to Civil Rights in America, his philosophy of peaceful protest to create constructive change, and his focus on service. Cook commented, "No-one can do everything, but everyone can do something. When all of those contributions are combined like so many points of light, the world becomes a brighter place!"

Using examples of young people whose philanthropic initiative created constructive change, Cook highlighted:
  • Zach Bonner who formed his Little Red Wagon Foundation in 2005 to help underprivledged kids with a focus on homeless youth
  • Katherine Commale who raised money through her program, Nothing But Nets, to send anti-malarial mosquito netting to Africa
  • Tyler Page who saw a program on child slavery in Ghana and raised over $50,000 to rescue over 650 children (Kids Helping Kids with Nothing)
  • Teenage girls in Cincinnati who formed H.O.P.E (Help Other People Endure) to help rebuild a South African village
  • Cradle to Crayons formed in 2002 to provide children with school supplies, clothing and toys which has been supported by many young people.

Cook explained how Chesapeake Academy has contributed in the recent past, listing recent initiatives serving the Northern Neck Food Bank, Special Olympics, raising money through the Clash of Coins to support local families, Socktober, a book collection for free Health Clinic, Walk for Water, and participating in the Festival of the Trees to support the YMCA Guardian Program. She then challenged students to find their own ways to strengthen their community. "The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King set the example," Cook concluded, "Do what is important to help the people of the world."


Reptiles Rock in PALS Performance
Despite multiple area school closings, Chesapeake Academy's Performing Arts and Lecture Series presented two performances of Reptiles Alive! which showcased reptiles from all over the world to an enthusiastic crowd of young children from the Northern Neck and Middle Penninsula areas, including students from the Northern Neck Montessori School, The Learning Center, the Wiley Child Development Center as well as homeschooled students. These wildly exciting and educational shows captured the attention and imagination of students while conveying important biological and environmental background on reptiles which included a snake, monitor lizard, tortoise, a diamond back terrapin, a young alligator, and others! 

Enthusiasm for Reptiles Rolls Right Over to Art Class 
First grade and kindergarten art classes seized the opportunity to use all they learned about reptiles in a PALS performance.  The classes worked on a clay project where they used the coiling method to make snakes based on Reptiles Alive. There were some alligators and tortoises made, too!







Welcome to Chesapeake Academy!
Please join us in welcoming our newest Ospreys to Chesapeake Academy: Callum Stander in fifth  grade, Alexa Stander in eighth grade and Eden Stander in seventh  grade . Parents, Michael and Sabine Stander, have moved their family to the Northern Neck from South Africa. They now reside in Weems and are sure to be a wonderful addition to our school community!

Sharing and growing...priceless!

The Faces and Our Culture Experience
During the fall of 2016-17, Chesapeake Academy hosted one student from Faces & Our Culture, an 8-week cultural exchange program based in Guatemala. Currently there are 18 independent schools in Virginia participating in the Faces & Our Culture Program. Our participant from Guatemala, Ignacio (known as Nacho), enjoyed the rich offerings at CA and his time with the Branson family was truly an exchange of cultures. We hope to continue once again to offer this opportunity to the CA school community during the 2017-18 school year.

Sheila and Grover Branson explain, "A key part of the Faces and Our Culture exchange program is not only the interaction with the student, but also with the student's family. We had a great time getting to know Nacho's family as a whole. Nacho's favorite activity was the NASCAR race in Martinsville. Or was it fishing? Maybe it was canoeing...We have been invited to come visit this year and are looking forward to it! Any family interested in hosting a student should definitely pursue this adventure," 

Chesapeake Academy will be meeting with the program coordinator during February to discuss plans for 2017-18. If you have a child in rising sixth , sevent h , or eigh th  grade next year and are interested in learning more about hosting a student from Guatemala from October - December 2017, please contact Hilary Scott at  hscott@chesapeakeacademy.org .

That is a lot of donning, zipping, stuffing, and wrapping up!  And they did it all by themselves!

Snow Day/Snow Play in Kindergarten!
Carpe Diem is the name of the game, and kindergarteners dressed themselves up and dove into the frozen state of water! What is an icicle? How is it formed?  Why is snow so heavy?  So much to learn and discover! Who could be sad to be back in school when the day is filled with climbing snow mountains, making snow angels and snowmen, measuring snow with nonstandard measurements  (the snow was 2 stormtroopers deep in Nathan's yard and 3 pinecones deep by Angus' home), and rolling down Crocket's Hill like snowy logs! Students also made cookies for their snacks with hot chocolate to cap off a perfect day! 


An assortment of snow people appeared on the soccer field!  Love this wet snow!

Jacob Hodsden gets creative with shapes.
Shaping up in First Grade
Continuing their study of Geometry, first graders used various geometric templates to create a "holiday" picture. The children then traced the shapes and colored the picture. Their final task for the assignment was to use the "Geometry Shapes" paper in their Math Binders to make a list of every shape used in the picture, spell it correctly, and count how many times each shape was used.  This thoughtful creativity spawned snow men, Christmas trees, and Santa's sleigh--all made up of circles, triangles, squares, rectangles, rhombuses, hexagons, and trapezoids.  

Mrs. Scott drops into the second grade and gets a report on the progress of the Mayflower from Valerie and Jimmy!

Second Grade Studies Settlement Patterns
Second graders set sail as they study the voyage of the Mayflower and the settlement of Plymouth. Through mapmaking and discussion these little learners trace the historic voyage from England to Cape Cod. They have spent time comparing this settlement to the one in Jamestown, specifically noting the similarities and differences between the two.  Next they will begin to create a Lapbook of the 13 colonies as they gain a better understanding of America's origin.
Third graders tackled the challenge of creating a snowman from the book There Was an Old Lady who Swallowed Some Snow!

Entrepreneur Jules LaSalle-Bryant believes dreamcatchers will become a hot selling item at the upcoming VCPE Market Days.

Hannah Ditch and Anna Carey enjoy the process of planning, developing, and marketing products for Market Days.  We can't wait to see what they come up with!
This month, the third and fourth graders are teaming up to work on an author study on Andrew Clements. Students, in six multi grade level groups, were given one of three different books written by Clements. The students enjoyed teaming up on this project, not only learning about the author but also practicing how to discuss literary elements with a group.

Los Tres Reyes Magos Delight and Intrigue Eighth Grade Spanish!
After researching how Christmas is celebrated in Spanish speaking countries, Chesapeake Academy eighth graders shared what they discoved in presentations using as many as four distinct media that engaged student involvement, and provided a student takeaway. Exploring topics that captured the cultures of the Spanish speaking world, students stretched communications skills and broadened world views.

Christmas observances in the featured countries span a 12-day period and peak with Epiphany on January 6 and the arrival of the Los Tres Reyes Magos (the Three Kings). Chesapeake Academy's eighth grade Spanish class sang along with the favorite Christmas carol of Spain, enjoyed a live in-class Argentinian tango demonstration; pondered the economic problems impacting Christmas in Venezuela, watched Christmas Eve fireworks in several countries, and shared an audible class gasp at monkeys called bush babies that are commonly featured at Christmas dinner in Equitorial Guinea. The class handled a beautiful Guatemalan Christmas table runner woven by the family of recent exchange student, Ignacio Carranza and tasted student-made watermelon agua fresca from Spain, pastry from Argentina and Columbia, and a delicious pasta salad from Puerto Rico.

Students were intrigued by the idea that the Three Kings, not Santa Claus, are the givers of gifts in these countries, and that the gifts are received on Epiphany, not on Christmas Day. The idea of observing all 12 days of Christmas was met with unanimous approval!

Michael Branson and Orie Bullard compete in a Kahoot, an online game, to test their recall of the material from the presentations.  What fun to see the class results instantly!

Larkin and Mani served as radio hosts, while Callie, Joness, and Spencer were the guests.  Jared, Adair and Elizabeth manned the production team.

Radio Activity Period Charms the Airways!
Sixth and seventh graders are taking their radio experience live this week! In small groups, students have taken on the task of planning and producing a live talk show for 103.9 WWND. Students are either serving as hosts, guests, or production as they plan scripts, music, and advertising for their shows. The first group, CA Productions, chose the topic of Chesapeake Academy for their show, which went live on the air on January 12 at 1 p.m. Students talked about what is going on in the Middle School right now, practicing their "radio voices" and managing the microphones and other equipment. This team was professional, entertaining and right on target!  Their show will replay at  1 p.m. on  Saturday, January 14, and at  5 p.m. on  Sunday, January 15, so tune those dials to 103.9! 

The next group of students will be debuting their live show at  1 p.m. on  Thursday, January 19, as they discuss books, movies, music, and other exciting entertainment recommendations.  This is too good to miss!

Oliver McAninch and Sadie Hassman show off their mastery of simple machines as they save the jellyfish fields!
Rube Goldberg Takes Simple Machines to the Max
As a culminating activity that incorporates motion, simple machine, energy, and forces, eighth graders had to construct a Rube Goldberg project with a task of either filtering harmful nutrients from our local waters, or slowing down beach erosion from our local beaches.  Their projects had to contain at least 10 steps and solve their task.  The students worked in groups of four, planning, building and fixing problems they encountered along the way through collaboration.  Each group designed their projects around a theme, and were very pleased when their final project worked to solve the task they were assigned. 
Algebraic Antics
Algebra students combine teamwork, problem solving, and strategy to successfully complete an inequality scavenger hunt hidden throughout the school.  As they prepare for their exam, students are each building a resource web page as part of the course page online.  Each web page topic includes practice problems, examples, video links, games, and a recording of the student explaining problem solving.  Students will use the resources to study for their exam.

What Makes Chesapeake Academy the Place I Want to Work?
I teach at Chesapeake Academy because the school's values match mine when it comes to children's development as learners and human beings. We expect our kids not only to answer questions and retain content knowledge but to ask questions, explore new places, jump off the monkey bars, follow their interests, play on sports teams, be friends, and be on the go. It's a place for children to be people.

Whenever I hear an NPR piece highlighting the importance of recess and movement to the brain, I think of our middle school participation in break, recess, P.E., and sports teams as well as our continual academic scavenger hunts, regroupings, trips to the outdoor classroom, etc.

When I hear about the desperate need for problem-solving and resilience in today's college students, I think of our problem solving journals and STEAM projects and the struggle to work with challenging texts alongside historical and current events.

I love being able to adapt curriculum and make choices based on the individual students in front of me and the world around us. There is an expectation for breadth, but there is also the room and expectation for depth and reflection.

Ospreys Around Town!
The Osprey Flock is full of cool birds, and some of these Ospreys make their marks in unusual ways outside of school as well as in the nest. This courageous and determined bird defies winter and endures some chilly temperatures to achieve a greater purpose!
 
Spencer Cammarata, '19 has particpated for the last five years in a Polar Plunge to raise money to fund events and activities for our local Special Olympics group.  After collecting pledged sponsorships, Spencer, his mother (Chris Cammarata), and a team of intrepid friends jump into freezing water on a January day! What then, you wonder? Spencer explains,  "I run as fast as I can to our room to get into a hot shower to get warm again! I am glad to do what I can to support my brother, Ryan, and the Special Olympics.

More Talented Ospreys Around Town
Sailing since the age of eight, Reese Bragg '17 is an accomplished sailor, competing on the Fishing Bay Yacht Club Optimist Race Team.  An Optimist or "Opti" is a small sailboat made for one person age fifteen and under.  Reese competitively sails in various regattas and championships throughout New England, Florida, and the Chesapeake Bay among other areas.  She qualified for the USODA Team Trials which was held this past spring in San Francisco, competing with the top Optimist sailors in the Country.   When asked what attracts her to sailing, Reese responded, "I love making my own decisions in the boat and being independent. And travelling to different places is part of the fun."  The Braggs just returned from Miami where Reese competed in the Orange Bowl Regatta, an international competition. Looking forward, Reese plans to continue sailing in high school and anticipates learning new roles in new boats!
What is Discovery Day at Chesapeake Academy?
Discovery Day is a fun and creative hands-on experience for community children on cold Saturday morning's in January and February. These events are offered as a means to bring together early childhood and elementary school families in our greater community with enriching, age-appropriate art, science, math, movement, and music activities centered on popular children's literature. 

Chesapeake Academy's first Discovery Day, on Saturday, January 28, will feature teacher-guided activities centered around the book, The Dot, by Peter Reynolds. Discovery Days are sponsored by the Early Childhood and Lower School teachers at Chesapeake Academy and the Wiley Foundation and are open and free to all children ages 3 - 6 in our community. 

While these events are not for current Chesapeake Academy students, we encourage our Ospreys to share this opportunity with families with young children between the ages of 3-6. If you know of a family that may have interest in attending our first Discovery Day (HINT: you could submit a referral form to earn a $1000 tuition credit!), please have them contact Hilary Scott at 804.438.5575 or hscott@chesapeakeacademy.org to reserve a spot!  

Get Ready for Galumpha!
Mark your calendars!  Chesapeake Academy is delighted to present Galumpha to the Northern Neck and Middle Pennisula communities on Saturday, March 11 at 2:00 p.m. Combining stunning acrobatics, striking visual effects, physical comedy and inventive choreography, Galumpha brings to life a world of imagination, beauty, muscle, and merriment. The performers create a sensory feast of images ranging from the ridiculous to the sublime, drawn together into a seamless whole, consistently bringing audiences to their feet. Galumpha is a triumphant mix of art and entertainment, offering world-class, award winning choreography (Edinburgh Festival Critics' Choice Award, Moers International Comedy Arts Prize).

Galumpha performs acrobatic modern dance emphasizing shape-building in which one performer lifts the other two off the ground. The resulting poses appear as spectacular feats of physical strength, but in fact are more reliant for their success on skeletal cantilevering than on brute force. The Galumpha performers create pieces collaboratively through choreographic games and long brainstorming sessions. Mutual trust, regarding both physical and emotional safety, is paramount.

Formed in 2002 by Andy Horowitz and Greg O'Brien, Galumpha delivers a fast-paced, athletic brand of movement, distinctive for its ingenuity. Highlights include "Velcro" (as seen on The Late Show with David Letterman, Crook and Chase (TNN) and the 2002 MDA Jerry Lewis Telethon) and "Clackers" (seen on MTV, Showtime, the A&E Network, Just for Laughs in Montreal and by over one billion television viewers around the globe). Other pieces feature experiments in human architecture set to music by, Rachmaninov, Mahler, and the virtuoso Czech band, Jablkon, making for an exceptionally entertaining program.

The word "galumph" (without the final "a") was coined by author Lewis Carroll and first appeared in print in his 1871 Children's novel, Through the Looking Glass, as part of the poem-within-the-novel, Jabberwocky. The originally nonsensical word has fallen into frequent usage, and is currently defined by Webster's Dictionary as "to move with a heavy, clumsy tread."

Galumpha has performed in most of the United States and in most Provinces of Canada. They have also performed in Chile, Venezuela, Israel, Singapore, Japan, South Korea, England, Scotland, Ireland, Spain, France, Luxembourg, Belgium, The Netherlands, Finland, Russia, Hungary, The Czech Republic, Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, and even Lichtenstein!
Reservations are required and can be made by calling Connie Smith at 804.438.5575.  Tell your friends!

Mr. Ian York, CA Athletics Director
Coaches' Corner
On January 4, CA hosted SCW Varsity Boys and Girls Basketball teams. In the girl's game, Elizabeth Stanley led CA with eight points while her sister, Adair, was able to pull down six rebounds in the CA victory over the visiting Seahawks.

In the second game of the evening, the boys fought hard and found the prize within sight, but they were unable to complete the comeback in time, falling by five to SCW. Michael Branson led the way in scoring with six points while Ashton Hollingsworth was just behind him with five points. Orie Bullard was able to grab five rebounds for the Ospreys. Although the guys were disappointed in the five point loss, this big improvement over the matchup earlier in the season showed improving skills.

On January 12, the CA basketball teams traveled to Ware and were able to come away with victories for all three of the Osprey basketball teams! In the first game of the night, Spencer Cammarata led all scorers with six points while Joness LaSalle-Bryant and Stewart Hollingsworth each pulled down three rebounds. This was the first victory of the season for the JV team. 

The girls won 19-14 in a game that was tight until the very end. Abby Souders led all scorers with nine points while Emma Smith came away with six rebounds. The Ospreys were able to control the ball and make enough key plays down the stretch to come away with a hard fought victory.

The varsity boys team beat Ware 37-35 in OT!!! The game was back and forth with both teams taking small leads at different points throughout the game. Ashton Hollingsworth was the leading scorer for the Ospreys with ten points.  The corner three pointer he made as time expired in regulation sent the game to overtime. The overtime period showed more of the same as neither team was able to pull away. With eight seconds left on the clock and the game tied, the Ospreys were able to set up in a press and get a turnover which Michael Branson quickly put in the basket for the game winning shot!

It was a great night to be an Osprey! 
CAPPA Update
