Week of March 12th – 16th Summary

Important Upcoming Dates:

• Art Teacher Sarah Perry is beginning the study of “Land Art” with the students and in celebration of Earth Day on April 22nd is planning to build a community piece in the gardens located at the front of our school. She is in need of small potted herbs (as they are the only thing that our friendly deer do not eat) for example basil, peppermint, oregano, society garlic, etc. in pots. They are fairly inexpensive and often available in the grocery store. She is also in need of rocks and shells to create a pathway. Any natural kind will do. Please have your child bring their one (or more) herb pot and found rock or shell to the garden by the morning of Tuesday, March 20th. Thank you! Email Sarah Perry with any questions.

• The March Community Meeting on Tuesday, March 20th at 6:30 pm will showcase the Upper School Science Fair. Please come!
