Virtual Community

Even though we are separated physically, Tower Hill remains connected as a strong community. Please join our community events and activities as we gather together virtual with green and white spirit!

Diversity and Inclusion

While we are physically distancing ourselves, we can also remain socially inclusive. Below is a list of engaging ways in which we can learn about different cultures, histories and the world around us while staying safe at home:

Brandywine at Home
Learn about the purple marching capes worn by suffragists with curator Dr. Amanda Burdan.

Enjoy Culture and History from Around the World
"Walk" through some of the world's most prestigious cultural institutions, like The Met and The American Museum of Natural History, then go for a "ride" on Disney's new Frozen rollercoaster with the kids. And regardless of your age, we think everyone will enjoy some live footage of pandas playing at the zoo!

SpeakOut Virtual Special Events - “Voices Changing Lives”

Menemsha Films
Rabbi Prinz escaped Nazi Germany in 1937 and became a civil rights activist in America, where he spoke at the March on Washington in 1963 just before Martin Luther King, Jr., proclaiming "America must not become a nation of onlookers. America must not remain silent!" Producers R Squared Productions and distributor Menemsha Films are making the film available for free as a beacon of hope during the COVID-19 crisis.

Green + White Mile Challenge

The entire Tower Hill community is invited to log your walking, running and biking miles for the Green + White Mile Challenge! This schoolwide activity will track our collective fitness, strength and might while social distancing. Together, can we "walk" from Delaware to California? How many marathons can we log? Put on your fitbit, or start a fitness app like Strava, Map My Run or Runkeeper, to log those miles.
  • Walk/run before class/work
  • Walk around the block between classes, lunch or at the end of the day
  • Take your dog for a walk
  • Walk with your family or siblings
  • Keep track of your distances and chart through the link below
  • Walks by anyone in your household count
  • Please include all biked miles as well
  • Share on social media with #greenpluswhite
Starting today, your family can begin logging miles here. Let's go, Hillers! Logo design by sixth grader Claire Zhou.

Tower Hill CAN be of the World: Drive-Thru Food Collection
Wednesday, May 6 and and Thursday, May 7, 8:30 - 10:30 a.m.
Tower Hill is collecting non-perishable food to support local food banks. This all school act of service will be held on Wednesday, May 6, from 1-3 p.m. and Thursday, May 7, from 8:30-10:30 a.m. All donations will be collected in the loop near Kaleidoscope/Alumni House. You won't need to leave your car and can remain socially distant. Tower Hill faculty and staff will be there (with masks and gloves on) to greet you and collect items from your trunk.
 
In this time of worry and deep concern, there are people who are facing hunger throughout our community. Hunger exists in every state and county in the United States. Your local food banks, shelters and soup kitchens rely on the donations they receive to help keep their shelves stocked. Food drives are also a great way to raise awareness about hunger and inspire others to take action. Click here for a list of suggested donations.

BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION WITH MRS. SPEERS
Tuesday, May 12, 5 p.m.
Tower Hill students, faculty and parents with May birthdays are invited to join Mrs. Speers for a cupcake and to blow out birthday candles!
