Dear Hunnewell, On April 27 our students will participate in a celebration of the music residency followed by an opportunity to participate in The Hunnewell Day of Play. During an all-school assembly yesterday afternoon, the students were introduced to the Magnificent Day of Play (see attachment). Needless to say, their excitement was palpable. The Bates School launched their Magnificent Day of Play on December 10, 2014. Toni Jolley, Principal of the Bates School, and her staff have generously shared this idea with us and helped us plan for our first Cardboard Challenge. The Cardboard Challenge is a global event inspired by the creativity of Caine, a nine year-old boy, who created his own cardboard arcade. You can see additional information at http://cainesarcade.com. Over the next two weeks the students will be planning their projects with Mr. Knapp during art class. They will also generate a list of materials they will need to bring in with them on April 27. Their ideas and the list of materials needed will be shared with you. You can help and participate in the following ways:
- Start collecting those cardboard boxes and paper towel tubes.
- Volunteer on April 27.
More specific information on how you can help will be sent early next week. Sincerely, Ellen Hunnewell Day of Play
