Hello Upper School Families,

Here is a little sneak peak of Thornton Wilder's Our Town, this year's Spring Play. It has been so much fun rehearsing with this group of hard-working, talented, and all around amazing students. We hope you can join us for performances this Thursday March 12th at 6pm or Friday March 13th at 7pm. It is sure to be a great performance! Please see updates for the coming week below.

Course Planning
Course planning for next year continues. Parents of current freshmen, sophomores, and juniors, I encourage you to have a dialogue with your students at home as students think about the classes they want and need for next year.

Spring Break
Monday March 30 - Sunday, April 12th: School closed for spring break. The office will be open limited hours during this time, and 3rd quarter grade reports will be e-mailed home during the break. Classes resume Monday, April 13th.

Help Us Help the Earth
This semester, the Roycemore National Honor Society is recycling all of your plastic bags, printer toner/ink, and batteries. You can find bins in the lobby, and if they are not there, please bring them to Cara Marantz or Mrs. Byrnes. We will be collecting until May 15th, so please check your homes for any of the items that we are taking!

Please see below for important reminders:)

Yours Truly,
Stefanie Rivera
Upper School Division Head
