Where'd You Learn That?...From ice fishing to calligraphy to tapping a maple tree, Community Day exemplifies experiential learning
Beyond The Classroom
Sharing Passions and Expertise
The offerings on Community Day are numerous and span a broad range of interests and activities, as faculty members are encouraged to share their passions, interests and expertise with our students.
Chinese teacher Mr. Luo shared the art of Chinese calligraphy, teaching students the basics of this ancient writing technique with specialty brushes and ink. Mrs. Delgado led a class on the basics of American Sign Language. French teacher, Ms. DelFosse, blended her passion for cooking with her Belgian roots, and taught boys to make Belgian waffles from scratch. And, Rev. Hall shared his mastery of Carolina barbecue to smoke ribs, craft the perfect sauce and make hot skillet cornbread. In the arts wing, Mr. Weinstein and Mr. Weisman taught the basics of woodworking. And, Mr. Russell shared his passion for music by leading a workshop on "music from the underground." Mr. Beattie led a hike up Lion's Head Trail in Salisbury, and rock-climbing enthusiasts Mr. Morsch and Ms. Paluszek taught boys the basic of bouldering.
What's the Point?
The students at Salisbury, the top all-boys school in New England, live full lives on the Hilltop and devote their time to academics, athletics, and the School community. By stepping away from our usual routine and engaging in meaningful work, getting outdoors, and sharing passions, Community Day allows students and faculty to forge bonds and embark on a more well-rounded educational experience, while fostering the Salisbury brotherhood.
