Gearing up to film Williston Northampton’s convocation in a couple of weeks. You probably didn’t know that Brad Hall, a Saturday Night Live alum, is also a Williston Northampton alum. I was filming the Williston commencement a couple of years ago when Mr. Hall came back to campus to give the commencement address.
Capping off a very entertaining talk, Mr. Hall got out his guitar and left the students with some memorable musical advice. He brought down the house.
No, we did not make this. As much as we mean to be ambitious each year, we never got around to making our own. But each year, we bid on a house (or two) at the Hartsbrook School Holiday Fair in Hadley, MA. This is what we won this year, put together by some students at the school.
Taping today at the Hartsbrook School in Hadley, MA. Got a little bit of wet-on-wet watercolor painting in the two kindergarten classrooms. So sweet! Also, some of the kindergarteners were hauling around big wooden boards and things to make slides and pirate ships in their classroom.
Then, off to the eighth grade for a physics class. Learning about water displacement, their challenge was to shape a 8-by-8 inch sheet of aluminum foil so that it could hold the maximum number of pennies while floating in water. Looked like a lot of fun. When I left, one group had reported floating 104 pennies in their boat. Try it at home!
