Dear Sandia Prep Family and Friends,
As promised last month, it is my pleasure to share with you one of the many amazing projects that is flourishing on campus. There is a beautiful oasis on the southeast corner of our campus that has grown, over a period of thirteen years, into an outdoor classroom and living laboratory for many of our students. With the physical labor of many parent, student, and faculty volunteers, along with support from the Annual Fund and various grants, our school garden is now a verdant and productive resource, which is utilized by science and art classes, Garden Club members and SummerPrep students on a regular basis throughout the four seasons.
The garden was first established as an experimental “Anasazi” Garden, by grantees, Karen Lyall and Chuck Buxbaum, through the National Science Teachers Association and Toyota. Their science students researched an ancient Anasazi farming technique, utilizing cobblestones as a natural mulch to prevent soil erosion, weed growth, and evaporation. Over time, with additional grants from PNM and the Albuquerque Community Foundation, Helen Haskell, Dibby Olson, and Karen Lyall transformed the garden into a more productive vegetable garden and fruit orchard, in which the 6th grade students till and plant each spring and where they volunteer over the summer during weekly garden parties. In the fall, when they return as 7th graders, the students celebrate the fruits of their labor during our annual Harvest Festival. Many of our Native American families have donated their time and expertise during these festivals, with the cooking of Pueblo Oven Bread in the student-constructed horno.
As a greater number of students and classes began to utilize the garden, we recognized a need for a shade structure and sitting area for a class or group of people. The Gorham family generously donated the funding for construction of a pagoda/amphitheater. Led by Mike Eras, our Facilities Director, our maintenance and grounds team built this beautiful addition to the garden in 2010. In January 2013, a greenhouse/hoophouse was constructed, under the direction of Joran Viers of the NMSU Extension service. Eager students, parents, faculty and staff participated in this construction, which was accomplished in one day! The greenhouse functions as a season-extender, so that seedlings can be planted earlier in the spring, and crops will continue to thrive during the early frosts.
In the summer of 2013, a SummerPrep gardening class was created, with the help of Kelly Bull, Karen Lyall, and a grant from Whole Foods and Healthy Kids Foundation. With her previous training and expertise in horticulture, Kelly has tasked the students in the Garden Club activity with the harvesting and marketing of the produce to the SPS community. The student club members hosted their first “Parking Lot Market” on Friday, August 22, where students pedaled organically grown tomatoes, basil, and grapes, from curbside to car. Kelly Bull and Karen Lyall attended the 2014 Farm to Cafeteria conference in Austin, Texas and now continue to be inspired by the possibilities for our students to be involved with real-world projects around food production.
Seventh grade science teachers Helen Haskell and Kelly Bull have designed a new science curriculum around global food systems. They are utilizing the garden ecosystem in their study of ecology, botany, entomology, and environmental issues associated with food production. During the first few weeks of school, their students harvested apples and made apple pies, using metric measurements and conversions! Students in Karen Lyall’s health class are also preparing nutritious snacks from the garden, such as green (kale) smoothies and breakfast tacos with chard and tomatoes. “When students are more closely connected with their own food production and preparation, they gain a greater respect and appreciation for it. They are more likely to experiment and try new foods, which is often a challenge with teens,” said Lyall.
The success of the Sandia Prep Garden is primarily due to the many hands of volunteers over the years. Two of our high school students contributed to the garden and surrounding grounds through their Eagle Scout projects. Alexander Adams, class of 2016, constructed a crushed stone path around the periphery of the garden, and Stuart Wygant, class of 2015, planted three large shade trees between the softball field and garden. During the summer of 2014, we enlisted the support of extra student and parent volunteers on a weekly schedule. Families adopted the garden for one week, when they were responsible for weeding and watering, in exchange for the produce. Another group of volunteers worked tirelessly over the summer, constructing an outdoor shelter, which will be utilized for class demonstrations on harvesting, preparing, and cooking food, directly from the garden. That effort was led by Gordon Faulkner, Steven Shain, and SPS parent Andrew Stone. We are truly grateful for the time, money, and energy they devoted to this project. We would also like to thank Betsy Truby ’72 for her generous donation towards this project.
If you have not yet had a chance to tour the garden, feel free to drop by and take a peek. Just remember our rule: if you wish to try some produce, you can’t leave without pulling a weed or two!
Many thanks to all of our garden volunteers.

“A hilarious and wondrous account of one woman's commitment to loving others first, and her belief that giving such love has made her life unbelievably rich, even as she faces her own death. "…one of the funniest plays of the year as well as one of the wisest and most moving. When the American theater gains a new voice this original, this unexpected, you really must hear it for yourself." – New York Times
"…written with a blazing, tender accuracy that grips you with the force of revelation…"– Village Voice
"…the themes of death, love, duty, care and service are frugally intertwined in a play of considerable emotional resonance. Laughing one minute, we are shuddering with a stealthy empathy the next. Death has rarely seemed more interesting or love so complex." – New York Post

At the end of May 2015, SPS history teacher Arne Vanderburg will lead a group of 10-15 to Zimbabwe and Botswana in southern Africa. This will be his second SPS trip to the region, his third overall in the last two years. Arne is very familiar with the area, as he lived and worked in this area of Africa for eight years.
The destination for this trip is a very rural region of southern Africa, near Victoria Falls. The group will stay in the midst of several thousand square miles of African grassland and savannah. African wildlife, including elephant, giraffe, buffalo, baboon, zebra, kudu and many more species, will be a part of your daily life for almost two weeks.
The trip will include rafting or kayaking on the Zambezi River, visits to local communities and schools, and the opportunity to stay with families in a village. There will also be an excursion into Botswana to visit Chobe National Park.
The trip is designed for high school students, parents, and alumni. If you are interested or would like more information, please contact Mr. Vanderburg at Sandia Prep, email him at email@example.com, or call him at 328-6134.

Fellow members of the Sandia Prep community,
As the new school year begins, the search for our new Head of School is well underway. The search committee has conducted a series of town hall meetings to help define the key attributes of our next Head. Additional meetings are planned for the early autumn. Your participation in these meetings has been critically important and much appreciated; and it has been most gratifying to see first-hand the passion and commitment of our Sandia Prep faculty and families.
To assist us with the search process, we have engaged the services of Tim McIntire of Carney Sandoe & Associates, a well established and highly regarded search firm. Tim is one of CS&A’s most experienced search consultants and lives nearby in Placitas. Tim’s career, prior to leading nearly sixty searches, has included heading two independent schools, serving on numerous boards, and leading an association of schools. His experience combined with his familiarity with the unique culture of Sandia Prep are, as we expected, proving invaluable in the search process.
The committee will begin reviewing candidate applications by the end of August; conduct telephone interviews with perhaps a dozen candidates in September; conduct further in-person interviews in late September or early October; and bring finalists to campus in late October and early November. If we find the right person, we expect to have a new Head of School chosen by December, and expect her/him to begin work at the end of this academic year. In other words, we are on track!
Whether you’ve attended any of our town hall meetings or not, I would encourage everyone to complete the survey available here:
The survey takes only a few minutes to complete, and provides yet another opportunity for you to give your input to the Head of School search committee.
Thanks for all you do for Sandia Prep, and best wishes for the 2014-15 school year.
Chair, Head of School Search Committee

If you are new to Sandia Prep, or to the Teacher and Staff Appreciation Snack Program, here’s a brief overview:
Program basics: You provide a snack for staff and faculty at Sandia Prep for JUST ONE DAY during the school year. You and your family (or a group of 2 or more families) may sign up for more than one date during the school year if you choose. We need at least one snack per week throughout the school year.
Food should be portable for teachers and staff, easy to grab and go on a plate or napkin. Utensils and serving spoons need to be provided as well. If food needs to be chilled or heated please provide the necessary equipment.
Quantity: 100 people
Menus: Can be elaborate or simple - your choice.
Examples: Cheese/cracker platter, fruit platter, veggie platter, quiche, baked goods, burritos, trail mix, yogurt parfaits, dips/ hummus with pita, bagels and cream cheese, popcorn, shortbread with toppings, sandwiches... Homemade or store bought – you choose!
Delivery: Deliver food by approximately 7:30 a.m. (morning is preferable) on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday during the week you signed up.

Food is placed on tables (tableclothes and center pieces are optional) in the Faculty Lounge (behind the office and next to the Commons).
For those of you interested in participating this year, you can easily sign up at www.mysignup.com/prepteacherappreciation or contact Tina Valentine 948-0760 if you have further questions.
