  1. One of the signature programs in Middle School is P3, Personal Passion Project.  One of the Middle Schoolers, Julia, decided that her passion was to assist in the Junior Kindergarten room. She is a magnet for the children. They just love her and she is learning so much.


  2.The Second Graders are learning about people who have made a difference in our world. One of the people is Helen Keller.  To understand how difficult her life was being both deaf and blind, they did experiments navigating the world of Lower School with their eyes and ears covered.
