We had several amazing events this week to share! First, as part of our Global Read Aloud initiative, we arranged a special visit on Tuesday from featured author, Varsha Bajaj, who flew here from Texas to visit a small handful of schools in the Hudson Valley. She presented to all age levels throughout the morning – she was phenomenal! Then, on Wednesday, our 1st –4th graders wowed the crowd with their amazingly spirited Winter Concerts! We even livestreamed them to families and had them recorded -- see the links below! Next up are our middle schoolers this coming Wednesday. We can’t wait to see you at the school, but if you or another family member can’t make it, we’ll blast the link out to the concert livestream the day before, and once again will record it for future viewing.
