Merci for an unforgettable Marché

Thank you, to all those who organized, volunteered, contributed in countless ways, and came out to Marché in support of the PTO and their incredible efforts on behalf of our students. It was a fun day, and it was energizing to see all the joy, on and off stage. Even the sun joined in and shined on us!
Community is a powerful word, and this event is another reminder of how inspired and inspiring our community is, of how we connect to create meaningful memories, and of how far we can go when we go together. For Lycée and our students, possibilities are endless, and all of this is thanks to you!
Here’s to always having loving ways and perfect days!

TOC Zoo Update: Students learn responsible fishing practices.

This afternoon, students went to go fishing with Madame Monica.

She split the class into two groups: the responsible fishermen and the irresponsible ones. At every trip, the irresponsible fishermen caught more fish than the others.Then they counted how many fish were left in the ocean.  It was a good opportunity to do math. Plus, between every trip baby fish were born. Of course, there were more babies born with the responsible fishermen, as more grown-ups were left in the ocean. It was very exciting, especially for the irresponsible ones who made a lot of money…At the beginning only. Unfortunately at some point they realized their ocean was running out of fish. Indeed there were not enough adult fishanymore to renew the fish population and so couldn’t make money anymore. 
 
So they had to decide: fishing the same way or reducing the daily amount of fish caught. They committed to taking smaller numbers and accepting regulations and the irresponsible fishermen were able to save their jobs. Unfortunately, sometimes, changes come too late, and there is nothing that can be done to save species or jobs.
The responsible fishermen avoided issues like this. They can still go fishing and make money without being worried about their future.

The overfishing activity helps students to understand the consequences of overfishing our lakes and oceans and how humans have to use resources in a smarter way.
 

We hope that at the end of the zoo experience, students will understand that humans are a part of an ecosystem where million of living things coexist. We may not understand how important they are but we know that our happiness depends on living in equilibrium with nature. Life can be better for everyone and as individuals we have the power to make this happen. Our descendants are dreaming of being grateful to us.
