This week, Erica Moore, Director of Diversity, visited Veronica Wachter’s first grade class to read and do a literature extension around the book, I Love My Hair. Students enjoyed discussing texture, color and hairstyles that they have. This activity was a perfect complement to the first grade’s “Me I Am” theme that helps students discover how they are alike and how they are different, and how to appreciate those similarities and differences and still be friends.
No Late Start for MS and US - Wednesday, February 1
In view of the lost instructional day Monday, the Middle and Upper Schools will run block schedules through the end of the week (C, D, E, and F rotations). This calendar change means that, except in the Lower School, we will NOT run a late-start Wednesday schedule on February 1. Lower School will still have a late start. Middle and Upper School classes will begin promptly at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, February 1.
