7th Science Trip to Green Adventure Project

71 7th grade science students attended an overnight field trip last Thursday and Friday with the Green Adventure Project at Triple C Camp in Charlottesville.  Everyone had a great time over the two days with way to many highlights to put in the video.  Thanks to all who helped out with the trip especially the Green Adventure Project staff.  Enjoy the video!

The Albemarle Jazz Band

Last Monday, April 15th, the Albemarle Jazz Band came to perform for the Sutherland students.  It was a great performance and we enjoyed it a lot.  To start the show, the band members stood in the stands with our students to give the feeling of them being a part of the performance.  It was exciting to see Sutherland alumni coming back to school to perform.  Thank you to all band members who came to Sutherland and gave us a great show!

This ICA, sharks enjoyed making decorative boxes for Mother's Day, getting creative with painting pots, playing computer games, and just hanging out with friends. 

Fun at ICA

Today was an exciting day for the students of Sutherland. It was ICA day. There were a multitude of activities to choose from to have fun. You could be with your friends, or have fun with an activity on your own. Some of the activities were cookie making, flower planting, karaoke, lego building, and box making. It lasts an hour at the end of Friday to let the students have fun once a month.
