Dear Green Hedges Families,
Looking outside of my office window in Kilmer House, I see the vibrant green leaves on trees and the immaculate groundskeeping of Mr. Kidwell. I see the Science & Native Garden in full bloom, thanks to the watchful tending of Mr. Fisher. I hear birds chirping and feel the wonderful warmth of Spring in the air. Of course, there is one thing that is sorely missing--the laughter, joy, and spirit of your children. I can imagine that this time of year would be full of lunch periods spent outside, lessons in the Science & Native Garden and the outdoor classroom, Grade 3 practicing the Maypole outside my office, time spent gardening and tending to plants, and much, much more.
While we are not able to be on campus enjoying the sights and sounds of Spring, I find solace in knowing that some of our traditions, old and new, will still take place. They may not look the same, but the spirit of each remains intact--bringing together our families, engaging in meaningful activities that serve the greater community, and fostering cross-grade connections and bonds. Teacher Appreciation Week was a wonderful example of celebrating our faculty in an innovative way and I thank the Parent Association for showing them so much love!
The events below are for our students, parents, and families and I hope that each one of them brings happiness, comfort, and a sense of familiarity to you.
