Upcoming Events and Important Dates:

Tuesday, April 15: Tomorrow marks the one year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings. We shared a moment of silence at Morning Meeting in each building this morning in honor of the victims. Students in Grade Eight suggested that members of our school community wear yellow or blue tomorrow to demonstrate support for the victims, the City of Boston, and the athletic and cultural tradition of the Boston Marathon. Students in all grades are welcome to join some students in Grade Eight in wearing yellow or blue tomorrow.

Tuesday, April 15 - Thursday, April 17All students and parents meet with a student's Advisor for Student-Advisor-Parent conferences to discuss the Quarterly Student Report. These conferences are mandatory and students need to attend. Each Advisor's time for conferences is limited, so please make every effort to attend your child's conference at the proposed time. If waiting for a conference, students may stay at either school building in a quiet study hall until 4:15 pm on Tuesday and Thursday and until 1:30 pm on Wednesday. Please click on either of the links below to read the collection of curriculum narratives from the third term.
