A Message from the Division Head

by David Lowell

The Great OES Book Swap has come and gone, but not before bringing great joy to many Lower School students. They selected their "new to them books" and began new adventures with the turning of pages. Thank you to all of you who donated books to GOBS and especially to Rebecca Thompson and her FOESL friends who made it all happen.

If you were unable to attend the Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast last Wednesday I want to express my appreciation for all the support volunteers have provided in Lower School. With over 250 volunteers conducting over 2500 hours of service, we could not be the good school we are without your good work.

Though it is still early spring, planning for the 2019-20 school year, our sesquicentennial year, has begun. Please note the schedule for Moving into Coffees below.

Moving into Coffees
To help orient you to your child’s grade to come, we offer a series of Moving into Coffees starting in early May.  See the table below for dates, grades and locations of the coffees.  Note that the coffees are listed in Grade level order, not calendar sequence. Review the schedule below and plan to attend the coffee for the grade level that your child will be moving into next fall.  At the coffee, you will have the opportunity to hear from the teachers and students, as well as meet parents who will have children new to OES in 2018-19.
