PICTURES THIS WEEK: I will be putting a lot of pictures on the blog at different places, but there will always be more at the bottom of the blog. 

  1. One of the best parts of being in a Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12 school are the times that the Lower School students get to spend with their Upper School Griffin Buddies. On Thursday, they collaborated on decorating and writing cards to children in hospitals.  What a wonderful experience for everyone and greatly appreciated by the children who receive them.

2. The 4th Grade celebrated reading with "Flashlight Friday" . The students brought in sleeping bags and other comfortable items and flashlights. They all had such a great time reading with their flashlights! 

  3. The snow has arrived and with it lots of fun at recess! 

4.  Even our youngest children participate in service. In our Extended Day Program, the youngest group created 156 letters to Veterans.  I know they too, will be appreciated.
