Discovery classes are opportunities for students to widen the scope of their curriculum, allowing them a broad selection of classes and groups where they can discover interests they have been cultivating or didn’t yet know they had. This year their Discovery classes—which meet once a cycle—named First Lego League, Classic Movies, Virtual Stock Market, Graphic Design, Visual Story Telling and Visual and Performing Arts. It’s so fun to try new things!

In Lower School Morning Meeting, Mrs. Lindsey gave a demonstration about virtues and character, showing that it’s much harder to put the toothpaste back in the tube once it’s out, just as it’s much harder to take back unkind words once they are said. Chapin practices it's Five Virtues every day, which means we learn how to put ideas like respect, responsibility, kindness, perseverance, and honesty into real-life day-to-day action. It's now always easy, but it's always worth it.
Chapin School Princeton celebrated the achievements of its students in two separate ceremonies. This year has been full of the best kind of challenges—the ones where students and faculty push themselves to learn more, to think differently, to listen closely, to have fun and to become even more amazing than they were before the first day of school. The Recognition Ceremony and Prize Day wer e just a thumbnail snapshot of all the ways character, curriculum, and community are truly who we are.
