Fifth-Grade theatre students performed in front of an eager audience of kindergartners this morning during a Readers' Theatre adaption of the children's book Goldilocks and The Three Dinosaurs by Mo Willems and The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister.

Readers' Theatre offers students a strategic approach to reading, writing, listening and speaking and integrates new ways to learn storytelling basics and explore character and voice on the stage.

"Our 5th graders love to interact with our younger students, and this was an excellent way for them to show the kindergartners a different way of performing while getting them excited to read these books themselves," shared Middle School Theatre teacher Ashley-Bugg Brown.

We're enjoying this sunny weather on campus, but a little snow would have been perfect for the robotic dog sled teams our Senior Kindergarteners created in Makespace!

The SK students used Mouse and Go Robots and various recycled materials to make their dog sledding crews, which tied into a recent lesson on the different types of transportation.

Unlike cars that use wheels, students observed how the bottoms were more like skis and had to brainstorm various ways to make the sleds smooth enough to move with the robot pushing them forward.

"We also explored how the weight of our sleds made a difference in how fast our sleds went and used that to determine speed," A.N.T.S/Makerspace teacher Lindy Roberson shared. "The students had a lot of fun while gaining a new perspective on transportation."

Neither snow, sleet, nor rain can stop our incredible maintenance crew from ensuring our campus always stays in tip-top shape. Even through freezing temps over winter break and today's downpour, maintenance made sure our Lynx have the best learning environment!

Thank you to Mr. Dan, Mr. Patrick, Mr. Kevin, Mr. Irvan, Ms. Tishuna and Ms. Alice for all you do for Lausanne! 💙💛

Lausanne kicked off the new year by welcoming back seven alumni who spoke to our Upper School students during Lausanne's annual Young Alumni Panel today.

The graduates, ranging from the classes of 2015-2022, shared the experiences that led them to choose their colleges, universities, graduate programs, internships and careers.

The panel provided insight into how Lausanne prepared them for the future, what to expect when entering college and if they would have done anything differently if they were to go through the college process again.

Our Junior Kindergarten artists had the opportunity to showcase recent creations with family members and friends during the annual JK Art Show.

The annual event is a part of the Primary Years Programme unit, "How We Express Ourselves." Students learned about various famous artists and used their techniques as inspiration for their own artwork.

Vincent VanGogh, Georges Seurat, Pablo Picasso and Jackson Pollack are just a few who inspired the bright and beautiful pieces on display at this year's show.

It isn't every day that you get to listen to and ask questions of a space explorer. Lausanne Lower School students got just that chance as they heard from Hayley Arceneaux, who took a ride to space on a SpaceX rocket in September of 2021.

Arceneaux blasted off in Inspiiration4, on a mission that marked the world's first all-civilian mission to orbit. The rocket was named in recognition of the four-person crew that raised awareness and over $240 million for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

In correlation with their curriculum, IB Business Management students explored how computer science, engineering and Amazon's warehouse employees help ensure online purchases reach customers' doorsteps even during the holiday season, the retail giant's busiest time of year.

Students had the opportunity to engage in an hour-long virtual tour of Amazon's Milwaukee and Chatanooga fulfillment centers. The behind-the-scenes experience included a combination of live streaming, videos, 360° footage and real-time Q&A with an Amazon tour guide.

As an international school representing 77 countries, it is essential to have a learning environment that enables all students to thrive.

Thankfully, Lausanne has passionate faculty members like EAL instructor Lilly Minor, who continuously work to make a global campus community possible. Through her role leading Lausanne's EAL tutoring program, Minor teaches international students English as an additional language while helping them become comfortable in their new surroundings and introducing them to life in their new city.

"EAL is a very special part of the Lausanne community," Minor said. "These kids come, sometimes, with no family here at all. Some with very limited English and not knowing anyone when they arrive. Yet, they work very hard to be able to not only come to school at Lausanne but to do well, continue to college and become prepared for life in a global environment."

Before winter break, Minor helped her students connect part of their EAL curriculum to the local community when she took the group on a field trip to Theatre Memphis to see "A Christmas Carol." After reading an abridged version of the Charles Dickens novel in class, Minor wanted her students to experience it through a live theatre performance. This year also marked the 45th consecutive production of "A Christmas Carol" at Theatre Memphis, making the field trip extra special for the EAL students, as it allowed them to be a part of a long-standing and beloved tradition for Memphians.

Our first and second graders sent their imaginations on a trip around the globe this morning as they explored different cultures and holidays celebrated worldwide.

With a paper passport and suitcase in hand, students rotated between each first and second-grade classroom to experience a different country, which included the Philippines, Hawaii, Isreal, Germany, France and Sweden. Students received a new passport stamp from teachers at each stop on their adventure and had the opportunity to decorate paper ornaments, create various arts and crafts, sip on hot cider, snack on homemade latkes and even participate in a snowball fight!

Second Grade students have been learning about traditions and Lindy Roberson, Lower School A.N.T.S./Makerspace teacher, wanted to share a little about her experience with dark winters while living in Scandinavia.

After learning about the St. Lucia holiday celebrated in Sweden to bring light during the dark, cold months, the students were presented with a design challenge to create a head wreath similar to the one worn by St. Lucia.

The goal was for the wreath to fit their head and have at least 4 candles ( or whatever they wanted to use to represent candles) on the top of the wreath.

"With no specific instructions, I love to see the different directions kids take," Roberson said. "These challenges teach critical thinking and instill a passion for innovation. I could have never imagined on my own the many ways these would turn out."

As the students headed back to the classroom, they wore their wreaths proudly.

When thinking up innovative ways to learn in the classroom, you don't have to look further than Lausanne students and teachers.

Fifth Grade Language Arts teacher Cass Fernandez wanted her students to do an art piece to accompany their written essays about the symbolism found in the third novel they were reading this year. At the time, eighth-grade STEAM students were also working on digital self-portraits using an application called Adobe Fresco, a digital tool used by professionals to create art.

Madison Thomas '27 was eager to assist and help teach the younger Lynx about the application.

Ethan Hatton '23 found peace this season on the football field after his family experienced tragedy. Despite the pain and emotions of losing a father, Ethan took those emotions and worked through them on the football field.

ABC 24 sat down with Ethan and his family as well as some of the Lausanne coaching staff as they shared how his school and family came together to make sure Ethan didn't have to face the grief alone.

Middle School Students Explore The Similar Themes In The Giver And The Truman Show

As the students walked into class, it was clear that Thursday's class would be slightly different than usual.

The students just finished reading The Giver by Lois Lowry, and annotated different ways that the setting helped to develop the theme. Thursday's viewing of The Truman Show was to compare the movie and the book. In both, the lead characters' societies are not as they appear.
