The Bayeux Tapestry – French IV Project: 13 Years in the Making

The Bayeux Tapestry depicts the events leading up to the 1066 Norman invasion of England as well as the events of the invasion itself. It is believed that the tapestry was commissioned by Bishop Odo, the half-brother of William the Conqueror. The tapestry attempts to justify William’s invasion of England so this may be seen as a piece of embroidered propaganda.

Parent Huddle: Looking at the Vaccine and what the Future Holds

This week, our community at Hebron Academy focused on rolling out the vaccine and looking ahead to the future. We discussed:

  • Understanding the impact of social media misinformation during vaccine rollout
  • Evaluating how COVID impacts different communities
This Week at HAMS- April 12

This week, we began holding our weekly morning meetings in person in the athletic center. We started our “8th Grade Reads” this week with Kate, Gavin, and Alberto reading pieces of their choice. We also took some time at the end for some fun games!

Athletics Update

Unfortunately, with the weather that's moved in we are forced to cancel the games scheduled for Saturday, April 17th. We will, however, reschedule baseball, softball, and girls and boys tennis to Tuesday, April 27th. Softball and girls tennis will host, while our baseball and boys tennis teams will travel that day; all games will be against Kents Hill School. 

Nutrition from the Ground Up!

Ms. Ashley Paulson’s ninth-grade health and wellness class was joined by Ms. Amanda Miller who led the students in a farm-to-table nutrition lesson as they worked on a spring community garden project. The students learned about nitrogen, carbon, and earthworms as they relate to healthy soil and the creation of nutrient-dense food. 

Spring Sports Competition Schedule: A few Updates

A couple of scheduling updates from the Athletic Office. We happily re-scheduled two games on April, 24th to make time for our students to get their vaccination shots in the afternoon! The updated times are as follows: 

Paige Bourgoin commits to play hockey at Curry College

“Paige was an integral part of Hebron Girls ice hockey program. Paige’s strong skating, work ethic, and team-first mindset set her apart from others in the league. We will miss her as a leader in the locker room next season. We wish her good luck next year in beginning her college hockey career at Curry College.”

 
Over 70 students Obtained First Covid Vaccine

We are thrilled to report that over 70 Hebron students were able to obtain their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine this past week. “Our goal was to get all eligible students aged 16 and older vaccinated before the end of the school year and we are pleased to report that this is likely to be a reality.”

Tea Miles Commits to play Hockey at Salem State

“Tea has been an important part of our Hebron Girls’ Hockey Program during her prep school career. Her size shot and defensive play propelled us to win some close games last season. She works hard on and off the ice and will be missed next year. We wish her all the best as she starts her college hockey career.”

The biggest lesson I have learned is to appreciate the little things that we take for granted every day, whether that be attending classes in-person to being able to play sports. The pandemic has shown us that the world is an unpredictable place, and all we can do is to be grateful for what we have now.

This Week at HAMS- April 5

This week, we began holding our weekly morning meetings in person in the athletic center. We started our “8th Grade Reads” this week with Kate, Gavin, and Alberto reading pieces of their choice. We also took some time at the end for some fun games!

2021 Commencement: RSVP by April 18

We are really looking forward to celebrating the graduation of our seniors and postgraduate students in the coming weeks. We are even more excited to share that we will be able to welcome parents to campus on May 15th for the commencement ceremony!

 

Spring Activities/Sports- Week of April 5th

We are excited to offer a variety of afterschool sports and activities for HAMS students in the spring term. Students can choose from the following activities: track and field, boys’ and girls’ lacrosse, baseball, softball, and dance. HAMS students have been sent a form to fill out if they would like to participate in one of these activities. 

Spring Sports Competition Schedule

We are thrilled to report we have an interscholastic competition scheduled for boys and girls tennis, track and field, softball, and baseball! We’ve collaborated with our MAISAD school partners, all of whom take part in similar health and safety protocols in their respective communities, and feel confident in our collective ability to safely engage in the aforementioned sports this spring. 

New Departure Date for Underclassmen

As you likely read in last Friday's Hebron Connected, we recently finalized our plans for the Commencement ceremony for the class of 2021. The graduating seniors' number one priority for that special day is, understandably, the presence of their families. In order to make that a reality, we must ask our junior, sophomore, freshman, and HAMS boarders to depart a day earlier than planned. 

This Week at HAMS- March 27

The 7th grade Latin students came to class this week bearing the fruits of their labors, a Roman domus. The design of these homes can still be seen in new residences throughout the Mediterranean - it is a design that works! The students used architectural sources for their buildings.

Creven Ferguson Commits to University of Charleston

“Creven has been an integral member of the Hebron Men’s Soccer Team. Finding a place in one of the most successful programs in New England when he first arrived, Creven’s athletic prowess, defending strength, and tactical awareness was among the best that have come through the program in my tenure.
