From Chad Long: Thank you to Jenna Schlatter for creating the great bulletin board by the wooden benches. The pictures of staff members reading are being greatly enjoyed and talked about the students. What a wonderful way to promote life-long reading!

Many accolades from various colleagues to Ms. Lund for writing, directing, and organizing the LS Drama Troupe to share an incredible performance with the Lower School!
