Join us for Field Day on Friday, June 1, at Von Colln Field! Was your Tiger on time, and in school 95% of the time? Then look out for a "Field Day Ticket" on green paper. This means they DON'T have to pay the $5 fee to get a shirt and pretzel! So please look for this ticket in your child's backpack or homework folder. (if you would still like to contribute, the HSA would be grateful) Don't forget, you can also volunteer during the day; from walking the students from the school to the field and back, chaperoning the event, and helping with the various games and activities. Help us make this Field Day memorable for all of our Tigers! https://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050e4aafae28a02-bache9

    Bache Kindergarten Families: Bache Martin Field Day
    Join us for a spectacular end of the year celebration on the Parkway! The annual Bache Martin Field Day will return to Von Colln Field on Friday, June 1st. Students from K to 8th grades will walk down to the field for a day of fun and games.

Henri Edmond Cross was born on this day in 1856. Originally named "Delacroix," he changed his name to the anglicized "Cross" to avoid confusion with the earlier artist. In 1884, Cross co-founded the "Société des Artistes Indépendants" where he met and befriended the neo-Impressionist painters Seurat and Signac, all of whom are represented in the Barnes Foundation collection. These artists, inspired by new optical theories, emphasized the use of separate, but interwoven touches of paint and a bright palette of contrasting hues to achieve greater vibrancy of color in the viewer’s eye. 🎨 Henri Edmond Cross. “Two Women by the Shore, Mediterranean,” 1896

    Yanni Is Still Chilling, 25 Years After the Acropolis
    PHILADELPHIA - The mustache is back. Yanni, the Greek-American god of sweeping, symphonic-ish musical light syrup, says he goes back and forth about keeping his signature facial flourish. He shaved it off a few years ago; it's disconcertingly absent from the cover of his 2016 album "Sensuous Chill."
