“Waterford is pleased to present Peter Beck’s artwork in it’s arts center gallery. We hope Peter’s exhibit will inspire young artists at Waterford”—Colby Brewer, Art Department Head.
Science is an integral part of our Lower School curriculum. We begin integrating science into the curriculum in Preschool. Science concepts are woven into the many parts of the Preschool day, from centers and outdoor play, to snack and small group activities. We know that the natural world is a powerful stimulus for observation.
Class IV students all experience a six week, three times a week, exploratory strings class. They learn correct posture and basic technique while practicing fun and engaging songs. They may choose the violin, viola, or the cello.
Chess in Lower School
Waterford is excited to continue our tradition of Chess instruction in the Lower School. Class III, IV, and V students work with Kristin South, our Lower School Chess teacher, during the first months of school, and students who are interested in Chess competition are then encouraged to join our after-school competition chess program. This program attends several chess competitions throughout the year.

Where were you on September 11, 2001? Upper School students Tabitha Bell and Ty Cramer asked faculty to recall where they were and what they were doing when planes hit the twin towers of the World Trade Center at 8:45 a.m. in New York City. Although the events of September 11 are vividly remembered by our faculty and millions of Americans, current Waterford students have no memory of the day; our oldest students were one year of age when the attacks occurred.
