Middle School Notes – January 17, 2018
Dear Middle School Families,
During our advisory lessons over the past week, we focused on the theme of “celebrating differences” under the umbrella of diversity, equity and inclusion. Links to the specific activities are available here. As a culmination, we used our town meeting yesterday to celebrate the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., featuring student-selected and -presented quotes and a musical performance from the Upper School Student Council Association president.
Updates and Reminders From Last Week’s Newsletter
Spring Break Camp
Believe it or not, spring break is just around the corner. Spring Break Camp at Flint Hill School will run from Monday, March 19, through Friday, March 23. Students will explore a daily theme through literature, experiments, creative arts, a cooking activity, journaling, and kinesthetic movement and play. A daily field trip off campus will allow students to extend the theme through experiential learning. We hope your child can join Mrs. Dhar, Mrs. Patrick, Ms. So and Ms. Reilly for a fun-filled week! If you are interested in enrolling your child in the Flint Hill Spring Break Camp, for students in Grades JK-6, please register here. Space is limited, so you are encouraged to register your child/ren as soon as you are able.
