New Roots students played their steel drums to celebrate the inauguration of Dr. Orinthia Montague, the fourth president of Tompkins Cortland Community College.
Led by Upper School students in 11th grade, we collaborated with Water Resources Institute, Toxics Targeting, and others to demonstrate what’s possible if we set our intention on clean water for all people.
Boyton Middle School invited our students to perform live during a school-wide celebration and present workshops on the history and development of the steel drum.
We’re now accepting online applications through the enrollment page of our website. We invite all community members with students aged 12-18 to consider New Roots as an option for secondary education.
Svante spent over an hour with our students discussing questions related to race and social inequality, as well as City of Ithaca sustainability and transportation initiatives.
