A Message from the Division Head

by David Lowell

Welcome back. I hope you enjoyed a restful and restorative break and your children have returned to us healthy and ready to be back in school. This month is a busy time in Lower School with Parent Coffees, Parent University, State of the School addresses, admission events and reenrollment dates. Consult the OES Calendar for details.

  • Grades 4 and 5: Monday, January 27

We will be offering all parents coffee and tea in the Lower School lobby from 7:30 – 8:00am before each Curriculum Coffee. Thank you to Lower School Parent Partnership for supporting this parent community time.

LS Friendly Reminders
