Celebrating the Stars @ Winterfest

Dozens of TPS families celebrated the Cosmos at the Schuylkill Center's star-themed festival on Saturday, December 13.  Crafts included making star ornaments with Head of School Justine Hoffman and preschool teacher Maureen Glaccum, taking a twilight walk, and checking out native animals at a live animal show. There was a bonfire and s’mores under the stars, and art teacher Rick Jacobsen supervised a telescope for a closer look at the night sky. Middle school teacher Wendy Furry and TPS parent and astrophysicist Mordecai Mark Mac-Low led a walk about the history of the universe. The Franklin Institute’s chief astronomer, Derrick Pitts, concluded the evening with a talk about the wonders of a starry night.

We would love to see more photographs from the event. If you took any, please send them to [email protected]. Thanks.
