The Lower School Community Kicks Off Fall in Style
Last Saturday, blue skies and sunshine reigned over 450-plus participants in the first-ever Lower School Fall Festival and Picnic. Terrific fun was had by all as Tony Furtado and his bluegrass trio provided a musical backdrop to kids playing family-friendly games and indulging in popsicles. It was a wonderful community-building event where families new and old connected. There was even a pie contest with over 25 entries! Congratulations to Bridget M. '25, whose apple pie was judged to be the best of the fest.
Thanks to co-chairs Sarah Ellis and Desiree Bliss for sharing a few photos from this new school tradition.
