Weekly Notes from the Head of Middle School, 3/20

Dear Middle School Families,

It was exciting to have grandparents and special friends in the classroom last Friday. I very much enjoyed the unique perspectives offered by our visitors and I believe it was a wonderful opportunity for students to see their classroom through the eyes of their grandparent or special friend. Thank you to everyone who participated in this annual Palm Valley tradition. Thank you as well to our incredible Parent Association for providing everyone with a delicious breakfast. Our parents were in the staff room almost all day last Thursday working hard to put that breakfast together and their devotion is very much appreciated!
