Dear Parents:

We were delighted this week to host another exceptional Science Fair. Jane Coles, Dr. Turk, and Laurie Dunton deserve special recognition for their Herculean efforts to guide our students to this finish line. With projects focused on everything from ant repellent to basketball dribbles, our students gained valuable experience through the entire process, culminating with them explaining their projects to judges, faculty members, and other guests. It was excellent to see such positive energy around the event—and many students are already talking about next year.

We also were treated yesterday afternoon to wandering 10th grade poets from Josh Canning’s class. They recited poetry to audiences around campus, including in the main office and the lower and middle schools. Just like with the Science Fair, it’s always fun to have our students demonstrate their learning in front of a real audience.

Have a wonderful weekend – and be glad we are well south of the polar vortex!
