Garden Delights

One of the nicest things about our garden is the opportunity to do more than just get your hands in the soil (although that’s really fun!). Our children write in their journals about the crops, such as identifying bugs that help or hurt the plants. #communitygarden #fruits #vegetables #herbs #bugs #hurtorhelp #chestereastside

Pythagorean Math Lesson – Camp Phoenix

Our seventh-ninth grade campers learned about the Pythagorean Theorem (you remember a2 + b2 = c2 – the sum of the areas of the two squares on the legs (a and b) equals the area of the square on the hypotenuse (c)). A drawing and a little construction paper help to make it clear. #mathclass #pythagoreantheorem #triangle #summerlearning #chestereastside

From Math to Science!

The morning’s math morphed into science, as the seventh-ninth graders calculated the proportions of the planets. From Mercury to Neptune (any maybe even Pluto), our kids can figure out their size. #math #science #planets #proportions #chestereastside

Community Garden is Producing

Fruits, veggies and the herbs that season them always taste better when they’re from your garden. Our children have begun harvesting the spring crops, like carrots. Can tomatoes, cucumbers be far behind? #garden #springcrops #summercrops #harvest #delish #chestereastside

Visual Arts Club – Camp Phoenix

Cézanne, Monet and Renoir have nothing on our seven and eight-year-old campers. The Visual Arts Club focused on Impressionist painting and their waterfalls definitely display the movement’s focus on thin brush strokes, ordinary subject matter and an emphasis on light and movement. Next stop – The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. #impressionism #summercamp #metropolitanmuseumofart #painting #chestereastside

U.S. Representative and Civil Rights icon John Lewis

U.S. Representative and Civil Rights icon John Lewis came from humble beginnings. He worked tirelessly to bring change in the United States of America. He stood for justice in the power centers of our country. His stature loomed large in the Halls of Congress, and his integrity was without question. Chester Eastside, Inc. continues Representative Lewis’ legacy of working for a more just society, and today we honor his memory. #RepJohnLewis #USHouseOfRepresentatives #CivilRightsIcon #honor #chestereastside
