Weekly Notes from the Head of Middle School, 12/19

Dear Middle School Families,

Last week’s Fun Friday was an international extravaganza! We had dishes from all kinds of exotic locales including Australia, Turkey, Ethiopia, India, Russia, Italy, Poland, Portugal, and Mexico as well as Native and local delights. Thank you to everyone who participated and made the special effort to treat us to such an amazing smorgasbord! Oh, and the movie was fun too!

As we wind down and prepare to embark on our winter holiday, I want to wish everyone a safe, healthy and magical break. May it be full of love and laughter and all the best for an excellent 2019.
