Running Away to Join Smirkus

Senior Sorrell Nielsen has been involved in circus arts since she was 5 years old when her older brother, Tristan, and his friends needed circus props and started throwing around Sorrell and her sister, Greylin. Sorrell and her siblings attended the Pine Hill Waldorf School where the circus program was a big draw for all of them. Sorrell’s siblings inspired her because she was intrigued by the many possibilities in circus arts. Sorrell continued to follow this passion, learning to juggle, unicycle, balance on rolling globes and tightwire throughout her studies at the Pine Hill. After years of …

Warrant Article 13: 220-91!

This year more than 300 people attended Wilton Town Hall Meeting. Many of the warrant articles were routine: capital improvements, repairs to town buildings, and approval for highway maintenance. The warrant articles were presented, a representative would speak about its merits, and then the Wilton residents would vote. Each item took 10 minutes, tops.

Warrant Article 13—to appropriate up to $80,000 from the Town of Wilton towards the purchase of the conservation easements on 155 acres of land on top of Abbott Hill—took far longer. Joe Broyles, a Wilton resident and member of the Wilton …

If you are a Wilton resident, your presence at this meeting and support for Warrant Article 13 is vital. A vote for Warrant Article 13, which would raise $80,000 towards the cost of the conservation easements on the 160 acres, is a vote for conserving prime forest and farmland. This land is home to high quality soil, diverse wildlife habitats, Souhegan…

February Model UN Conference

On February 15, High Mowing School hosted a Model United Nations Conference. High Mowing students were joined by peers from Alvirne High School and Monadnock Waldorf School to debate one of the more difficult geopolitical issues of the 21st century: China’s Claims in the South China Sea and the islands in dispute between China and Japan.

This conference was a gathering of the UN Security Council, one of the UN’s six principal bodies. The Security Council is tasked with maintaining international peace and security. To prepare for such a complicated topic, the students start researching weeks…

The Eagle is Back!

eagle paintingThe eagle is back! Last year at exactly this time, I was witness to a baldheaded eagle ravaging our hen house. And now one year later, he has returned, observed from the main building’s third floor windows, circling the High Mowing fields in all his glory, perhaps looking for the chickens. For me, the return of the eagle (coincidently, on the anniversary of my father’s birth) has personal significance related to my father’s death three years ago. My beloved father, a Native American Cree, was on his death bed surrounded by family in our summer retreat cabin on a lagoon by the Eagle River in …
