Hello Upper School Families,
Why is my face so red? Anyhoo...here we are at the end of third quarter, a strange quarter to be sure. Spring Break is here and while most of us will not be traveling, we all need a break to breathe! Thank you all for your patience and kindness these past two weeks. Please stay safe and healthy and know I am here if you need to reach out.
Also, since we cannot do this in person, here is a 'homeroom' update on new college admissions news from Ms. Campbell! Huge, loud applause coming your way from afar, my dear Seniors:
Google Classroom - For Parents
If you are interested...parents can get insight into what their students are doing in Google Classroom by signing up for parent alerts. The teacher just needs to go to the People area and click 'invite guardians'. This sends parents a daily summary of GC work.
Q3 Grade Reports
3rd quarter ended on Friday, March 27th and grade reports will be e-mailed home this week. Please keep your eye out for them.
Scholarship Fundraiser: A Live Stream Experience
Auction items will be live starting next week. Volunteers are still needed, especially those with live streaming experience. Please email
if you would like to join the fun!

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. As of now, classes resume Monday, April 13th.
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. Each student should have a sheet for you to sign. Please check with your student's Advisor if they do not have this sheet.
Please see below for important reminders:)
