San Miguel Program
The fantastic crew from Stony Kill Farm came to San Miguel Academy with a variety of fun and interactive activities including an omelet making competition between the 5th, 7th, and 8th grades using fresh eggs and vegetables from the farm and local cheese. SMA 6th graders are wrapping up their two week camp at Storm King Art Center. As fifth graders last year, they spent every other week at Stony Kill Farm where they had the opportunity to be immersed in farm life which is a highlight of the 5th grade year at SMA. We are grateful to our educational partners who enable us to provide our students with experiences and programming that spark curiosity and a love of learning. #sanmiguelacademy#defyingtheodds#breakingthecycleofpoverty#learnbydoing#experientiallearningStony Kill Foundation Storm King Art Center See MoreSee Less

San Miguel Program
San Miguel Academy sixth graders are enjoying a two week camp at Storm King Art Center. The program, designed for San Miguel Academy, dovetails our Project and Place-Based Learning curriculum. Yesterday, one of the activities centered around ‘Momo Taro’, a nine-part, forty-ton granite sculpture by Isamu Noguchi, inspired by a traditional Japanese folk tale about a hero who emerged from a peach pit to become the son of an elderly couple. “The full realization of Momo Taro depends on the interaction of visitors, who are invited to not just touch, but to enter, to sit, and to unite their bodies with the work—to participate in its existence. Noguchi’s flat bench provides a welcome site for rest and contemplation. The “center” of the piece—the hollowed-out granite “peach pit”—serves as a peaceful retreat. Even on the hottest summer days this interior remains cool. Noguchi expressed his wish that visitors, especially children, would not only climb into the cavity but also sing inside it and enjoy its special aural resonance.” It was indeed a hot summer day, so water breaks were frequent! We’re so grateful to our educational partners who make it possible for our students to experience the wonder of learning through exploration and interaction with our natural world. See MoreSee Less
