Weekly Notes from the Head of Upper School, 10/24

Dear Upper School Families,

Every year our Division Heads hold coffees to welcome new families to the school, or to give current families an opportunity to discuss issues related to their student’s education, or even to discuss topics of importance to education in general. On Monday, November 5th at 9 am, I will host a parent coffee. All Upper School parents are welcome to join me in a discussion of Upper School programs and activities. I look forward to seeing you.
