One-Act Plays: Watch Party April 9th

In the fall, several students participated in a playwriting elective with the hope of creating an original 10-minute one-act play. When everyone returned from our winter recess, students came together to produce and perform "The Album" by Roxanne (grade 11) and "All These Weeks" by Ruby (grade 12). "The Album" is composed of a series of monologues in which three people share memories of their own version of a man who’s passed away. In "All These Weeks," four friends in a high school get caught in gossip and misunderstanding and have to decide whether they will reconcile.

Art Walk: Meet Peter Small Through His Sculptures

on October 3, 2020 By CJ Spirito | art show public event
  Peter Small was a prolific sculptor and produced hundreds of pieces throughout his life. He began working with clay in the 1980s, and the human head was his most constant subject. He enjoyed experimenting and perfecting new techniques, such as the "ribbon" technique (in some of the sculptures above), which involved creating delicate patterns with "ribbons" of clay to form a more significant structure. Peter passed away in 2013, and about 20 of his sculptures found a new home at RPS.  We are very grateful to have these art pieces on our land and are excited to share them with others.  We hope you will join us for an Art Walk to learn more about Peter and his work.   When: Saturday, October 10, 2020 from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Where: Rock Point School, Burlington, VT
