The Studio School

Ice Skating/Winter Picnic

Students and teachers enjoy celebrating the arrival of winter, typically on the last Friday before our Winter Recess. The elementary school and middle school teachers take their classes ice skating in Central Park, followed by a grand finale Gatherings class.

The Early Childhood Program children remain at the school for a special lunch, and celebrate with a picnic based on The Winter Picnic, a book written by Studio School co-founder Robert Welber. The menu echoes the book with boysenberry jelly sandwiches and lemonade. Weather permitting, the children eat their picnic outside in the yard. Mr. Welber often makes a guest appearance to read his book aloud and talk with the children.
