Chesapeake Academy hosts Virginia Aquarium

Chesapeake Academy hosted the Virginia Aquarium as the second event in its Performing Arts and Lecture Series (PALS) for 2009-10.

Following the play “P.T. Phylum’s Amazing Animal Adaptations,” early-childhood students from Chesapeake Academy, the YMCA Preschool, Kathy Shearin Preschool, Kingdom Kids, The Learning Center, and the Northern Neck Montessori School rotated through educational hands-on visits to both the Touch Tank and traveling saltwater aquarium truck to view an assortment of marine animals, including sea anemones, baby sharks, crabs and turtles.

PALS events are funded in part by The Wiley Foundation, Target department stores, and the Rappahannock Foundation for the Arts.
