A few photos from our Eighth Grade Retreat, held just before Winter Break. We believe in rites and rituals as an important part of the junior high school age (and life!). Who remembers their Eighth Grade Retreat? What was your favorite part... Candle Ceremony? Waking up before sunrise to read letters from your parents? #candleceremony #rites #rituals #sbms #eighthgrade #santabarbaraschools #independentschool #carpediem

Today we circled up to remember Jack and Dave Cantin, two members of our beloved SBMS community who were taken from this world too early. Together we are stronger, and together we will keep their memories and legacy alive. Some jumped in the ocean and everyone threw these beautiful flower petals into the water. Thank you to our friends at @florabundanceinc for donating the flowers.

Students in Marlene's History Alive class (8th grade American history) learned about two of the most influential, artistic genres that bloomed during the Roaring Twenties and the thirties: Cubism and Art Deco. Students also were exposed to the ways in which Art Deco shaped the artistic styles of fashion, furniture, architecture, jewelry, and household goods. After demonstrating how to use collage to add depth, texture, and complexity, students created their own original Cubist collages. #8thgradehistory #8thgrade #sbms #cubism #artdeco #20thcenturyhistory
