All About the Lower School!
The last few days have been all about the Lower School. On Friday, I joined sixth grade parents as they decorated student lounges for a big reveal on Monday. These Huskies will be making the leap to Middle School soon, and I think we all just wanted them to know how proud we are of them. Also, who doesn’t love a celebration?
Over the weekend, I hosted grade-level picnics for the second, third, fourth and sixth grades. Although the rain ended things early, it was so nice to see everyone and to meet some of the people I only know from their email address!
On Monday, the Lower School honored John Thomas with an indoor celebration parade. The students had been preparing for weeks by making posters and practicing celebratory chants. It was all a surprise, and I’m sure Mr. Thomas was touched by all the students lining the hallways and cheering for him along the way. This will be a moment we all remember!
As a parent of a senior who has spent his entire educational journey at Flint Hill, a few parents have asked me things about my son and his time in the Lower School. Did he have friends? What level of math was he in when he was in fourth grade? Did he have lots of homework? The truth is that when I look back, I really only remember one thing: he was happy. He felt both anxious and excited to go to school everyday and was proud to be a Husky when I picked him up. All the other “stuff” worked out. So, my advice to all parents, but especially in the Lower School, please enjoy each moment. You won’t get this time back, and it all goes by so quickly.
