Weekly Notes from the Head of Middle School, 2/12

Dear Middle School Families,

It has been an action-packed week in Middle School preparing for  Valentine’s Day, helping Kindergarten students learn how to tie their shoelaces and participating in our Hundred Day activities with our Buddy classes.There are so many rewarding moments in the life of a teacher, but watching our middle school students playing with their younger buddies is incredibly gratifying! To see how their preschool and kindergarten buddies light up whenever we get together warms the heart like little else! We have the kindest Middle School anywhere and I could not be prouder of these students.
