This Week in Upper School September 8

Welcome to the first week of classes! 🙂 

I hope you all had a wonderful summer.

Below is important information for the first week of school – especially for 10th, 11th and 12th grade students who are activity leaders.  You will need to meet with your activity faculty advisor this week to prepare for the upcoming Activity Assemblies.  Please feel free to see me if you have questions.

Have a great week,

Cathie 🙂
