Sarah Schecter, Head of Lower School

October 12, 2023

Dear Lower School Parents,

It was great to see so many Lower School families at the Homecoming game last week. The Lower School students had a blast running from tent to tent and playing on the practice fields and on the playground. It was good to see them having some freedom and fun. 

It is hard to believe that the first grading period is complete. Fall Break is a good time to recharge our batteries so we can return ready for all of the excitement of the fall holidays. We had a fantastic first quarter. The children are working hard and learning so much. I visited several classrooms this week, and it was a joy to see all of the progress.

Owlfest is October 25 from 3:30 - 5:30 p.m. in the quad. As a reminder, we wear uniforms to school that day. Since this is a whole school event with our youngest owl friends; please no scary costumes. 

If your child loves science, consider signing up for our STEM Showcase. You will find more information at 2024 STEM Showcase Application.

Have fun over the break,

Sarah Schecter
