    Students Enjoy ‘Winter Wonderland’ at Mid-Winter Semi-Formal

    Although it wasn’t snowing outside on Saturday evening, January 21, Blair’s Romano Dining Hall was transformed into a winter wonderland for the annual Mid-Winter Semi-Formal. The fun started at Sharpe House, home of Head of School Chris Fortunato, his wife, Erin, and their family. Students from all grades enjoyed mocktails as they held dearly onto white roses handed out by none other than Mr. and Mrs. Fortunato. Students also posed for photos, which were taken by photography teacher Tyson Trish.

    Combinatorics: College-Level Math & Creative Problem-Solving

    Combinatorics is an advanced mathematics topic that students typically do not encounter until they reach college, but this year, Blair is offering the class for students who wish to continue studying math beyond the Advanced Placement (AP) curriculum. The course was developed by math teacher Benjamin Delwiche, who holds a BA in mathematics and an M.Ed. in curriculum and instruction from Boston College, and it introduces students to abstract and applied mathematics through strong emphasis on creative problem-solving techniques, and collaborative learning.
