Hello Upper School Families -

Welcome to 2020! Let me start by saying what a beautiful holiday send off we enjoyed at our annual Wassail celebration, truly one of my favorite all-school events of the year. Please see below for more fun pictures of all our adorable Griffins. As I write this, I am also reflecting on the past year and enjoying some much needed time with my family. I hope all of you have had a restful and fun break.

With January Short Term starting on Monday, it will be a number of weeks before we are back to a regular schedule in the Upper School, so please take a close look at the schedule below for details on the coming weeks.  Please note that I will not be sending another Newsletter until January 24th.

Monday, January 6  - First day of January Short Term. Please contact Mr. Horine or your project director with any scheduling questions.

Monday, January 27  - Regular classes resume in the Upper School


Grade Reports & Transcripts
Grade reports for first semester will be emailed to you early next week. Please let me know if you do not receive these.

All transcripts will be updated early next week to include 1st semester grades and an updated GPA. If you need a transcript for any reason, please let me know.
