Director’s Notes                                                               June 10, 2015

Hi all,

What a fantastic last week of events! 8th grade art show at Moody’s, Celebration of Learning, and the Great Skate were all incredibly successful. Many thanks to the many hours of work it took to make all the events successful; big effort from students, staff, and parents. All of you should be proud of the accomplishments.

First round of Passages on Tues were very successful. Students presented with poise and clarity, highlighting and reflecting on their achievements. Round two is tomorrow (Thurs) so if on campus please be respectful of noise levels; ideally keep things quiet from 8-9 am and 12:30-2 pm. Thanks. Continue reading DN June 10, 2015
