9:10-9:50 All School Assembly

Lower School is excited to host our third all school gathering of the school year in the big gym. We’re fortunate to host Wu Man, an internationally renowned musician from China who is performing next week in Portland. The agenda for the assembly follows:

  • 9:10 – Arrival in the Gym
  • 9:15– 4-5 students will introduce our guest 
  • 9:20– Wu Man Performance
  • 9:40– Q and A (LS students will ask Wu Man some prepared questions before hopefully opening up questions to interested MS/US students) 
  • 9:50– Dismissal

Please click the link above to learn more about our guest and consider previewing this experience with students (there is a neat video of her performing with Yo-Yo Ma). Building on themes of identity and resilience, Wu Man’s story is one we hope will inspire.
