A Message from the Division Head

by Ann Sulzer
Note from the Division Head: June 14

Wow–we made it to the end of the school year! In September it is so hard to imagine a whole year unfurling in front of us, and here we are heading into the summer after another amazing school year in the Middle School. We closed out our year with a day of fun in a bounce house maze, with yearbook signing, Gathering singing, advisory Olympics, and some special lunch and treats. On Thursday morning we celebrated our eighth graders as they move on to high school and recognized them for all they contributed to our Middle School over the last three years.  

I want to appreciate all the students who have learned more about their classroom subjects, their peers, and themselves. I also want to thank all of our wonderful Middle School families for supporting their children through this year of growth–we appreciate your partnership. 

I wish all of you a relaxing and restorative summer. I look forward to seeing some of you in the fall, and for those of you moving on to bigger adventures—I hope you continue to keep us updated about your families. Once an Aardvark, always an Aardvark. Thank you all!
