Mindfulness instruction begins today for ALL classes. Thank you to the many families who have donated and who still plan to donate to the Family Giving Campaign. Experiences like this are beautifully unusual and most welcomed and your financial contributions allow it to happen! Thank you!
Girls Leadership Evening Program begins. I am looking forward to hearing back from our families who are participating in this program. I am always encouraged when a program like this becomes available to our schools. Giving attention to the importance of empowering our young girls, especially in today's climate, is critical.
