First Day of School 2020
What a Phenomenal Day!

While there were a few hiccups here and there as expected, overall our First Day of School 2020 was a resounding success! United as one community of teachers, parents, and scholars, we implemented 100% online learning with grace and dignity, and that is no small feat. We would like to extend our sincere gratitude for the patience and generosity we know it took on your end to make today such a huge success. Thank you.
Facebook Live

Over 1,000 people joined Ms. Finn on Facebook Live this morning to participate in the Pledge of Allegiance and Pledge to the Texas Flag as one community devoted to the virtue of citizenship. Both Upper and Lower School leaders and teachers will be live again tomorrow and every day at 7:45am, and we hope your family can join us.
Zoom Links on Google Classroom

We learned this morning that some families had difficulty helping their students join their classroom's synchronous Zoom meeting due to the fact that the meeting information was not available on Google Classroom. We have now posted each classroom's Zoom meeting ID, passcode, and link to join to Google Classroom so that it will be easier for parents and students to find moving forward.
