Dear Lower School Families and Faculty,
This final week of school on campus is a time of celebration, recognition and gratitude. As I walked the Summit Trail this morning, I reflected on the growth and accomplishments of the students this year.
As students in Linda Pope’s fourth grade class watched a slideshow about the American Civil Rights Movement, the historical images – some inspiring and others disturbing – included a clip featuring American folk singer and activist Pete Seeger signing the Baptist hymn We Shall Overcome.
All families are warmly invited to this poetry reading, awards ceremony, and celebration of the publication of the Competition Anthology. Admission is FREE.
Julia Gratton, CeCe Moreno, Pedro Aguirre, Lexi Julien, Saniya Lakka, and Holden Smith will be reading their poems. Congratulations to Julia for taking the First Prize award for her piece "Georgia O'Keeffe, Abiquiu, New Mexico, 1948."
