Kent Place second-graders have been studying the people, animals, and geographies of our world’s continents — as they are today and from many years ago — as part of their science and social studies curricula, and this week they went on an exciting field trip that would bring their lessons to life. Equipped with their backpacks, notebooks, and adventurous spirits, the girls visited the Museum of Natural History, in New York City.
The Dragon fencing team competes at the varsity level in the New Jersey Independent Fencing Association (NJIFA) league and as part of the New Jersey Interscholastic Fencing Association (NJIFA) and the New Jersey Independent School Athletic Association (NJISAA) prep A league.
On the team are both experienced and novice fencers — all of whom enjoy learning and honing their skills with epée, foil, and saber weaponry. Our fencers have had tremendous success locally, nationally, and internationally; in recent years, individuals have ranked among the best in the world.
Come fence with us!
