Can you find the pig?
For the second year, Seabury School participated
in Tacoma's city wide treasure hunt, Monkeyshines.
Local artisans (and Seabury students!)
produced and hid various glass art pieces
and other trinkets around the city.
It was a great opportunity for the students to discover
the joy of giving and, for a few, receiving.
The yearly event coincides with the Chinese Lunar New Year.
This year was the year of the pig.
We spent our All School (PreK-8) Gathering making pigs.
Ms Monkey's workshop
Golf ball pigs
Each so unique
Perler bead pigs and painted rocks
Each student has something to hide.
A perfect place to hide and seek, Browns Point Light House Park
Here's a good spot.
A beautiful place to find treasures and only 5 minutes from school
Bright sun, brilliant blue skies, smooth water, diving birds,
majestic Olympic Mountains, slight breeze, a few pockets of leftover snow - a perfect day to go treasure hunting!
Found! Beautiful glittery painted rocks!
Fun with friends
Local history - the 100+ year old cottage
Even if we didn't find our own treasure to keep,
the day was a success.
We experienced the old adage,
"It is better to give than to receive."

Maybe next year we'll find one of these,
an official Monkeyshine glass globe!
We'll be back to try!!
