Into the Light by Mark Oshiro | GoodreadsManny is a homeless, queer Latinx teen who was bounced from foster home to foster home before being abandoned by his adoptive family in the Southwest wilderness and forced to learn how to survive on his own. He has found a safety he doesn't quite know how to trust with the road tripping Varela family when an unidentified body is found near a secretive Christian nationalist compound in Idyllwild, California, a compound that Manny is all too familiar with: it's the last "home" he had before his family rejected him and left him to die in the desert.

A Message from the Division Head

by Sarah Grenert-Funk
Need to Know September 29

I want to express my deepest gratitude for everyone who was able to attend Back-to-School Night! It was truly heartwarming to see the Upper School buildings and Great Hall buzzing with activity and filled with families eager to experience a day in the life of their child. We are incredibly fortunate to have such dedicated and involved families who are eager to come together in community with us. I hope you enjoyed the evening and please remember you have access to information about your child’s courses by checking out the website for each class on the Parent Portal. 

Thank you once again for your enthusiastic participation. We look forward to many more opportunities to come together throughout this year. I also hope you will take what Athletic Director (and parent of Quinn ‘27) Dennis Sullivan said at Back to School Night to heart and come out for athletic events, the plays, fine arts nights, and other opportunities to celebrate not only the children in your life, but their friends and classmates as well. In that spirit, we hope to see many of you at Catlin’s Homecoming where our boys and girls soccer teams will be playing at 4:30 and 6:30.
