School-Wide Community Service Project Benefits Trenton Area Soup Kitchen

On Friday, January 23, the Princeton Day School community came together for a school-wide community service event to benefit the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK). The Middle School students made 800 lunches for TASK on Friday morning. The Lower and Middle Schools collected extra Halloween candy after the holiday, which was also included in the lunches. The Upper School students collected toiletries and magazines, which will also be distributed at TASK. The lunches and toiletries kits will be delivered to TASK on Saturday, January 24, and twenty PDS families will be on hand to help distribute the lunches and kits. Interim Head of Middle School Alesia Klein, who helped organize the community service project, noted, “These lunches will help feed our neighbors who desperately need food…. My favorite quote from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is: ‘Life’s most urgent question is what are you doing for others?’ I’m proud of the PDS community coming together to give back.” Click here for photos.

Dr. Temple Grandin Visits Princeton Day School, 1/21

Princeton Day School was honored to welcome Dr. Temple Grandin, Professor of Animal Science at Colorado State University and highly influential animal researcher, as well as bestselling author and autism activist, to campus on Wednesday, January 21. Dr. Grandin gave a fascinating lecture to Upper School students and faculty on a wide array of topics including, but not limited to, her work with animals, the evolution of the autism spectrum, the importance of studying outcomes when it comes to our education system, untapped future job opportunities (hint: learn how to code and study mechanics), and different ways of thinking. “I think in pictures and, when I was younger, I thought everyone else did, too,” remarked Dr. Grandin, who illustrated a wonderful rubric for typifying the different ways that different people think, be it spatially or verbally, associatively or linearly. She highlighted that difference does not denote deficiency, noting that it is exactly these differences which lead to innovation. She gave several examples of successful ventures founded by people diagnosed with austism and ADHD, including IKEA and, arguably, much of Silicon Valley. Dr. Grandin also stressed how exposure to different things is critical to success, especially for young people. “I learned about animals because I spent time on my aunt’s ranch growing up,” noted Dr. Grandin. People often become good at what they are exposed to, so device-free, unstructured play time can open up a world of possibility. The school is grateful to Science Department Chair Dr. Silvia Strauss-Debenedetti for arranging to have Dr. Grandin visit the campus.
