Student Activities

Our Grade 8 Students Are Having a Blast in China! Since landing, they've been to the Temple of Heaven, the Summer Palace, the Forbidden City, the Great Wall, and Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan province, in addition to having lunch with a Chinese family, doing a little shopping, and going out for dinner. Keep making great memories!
National School Walkout: All of our sixth-grade students participated in the National School Walkout on March 14, the one-month anniversary of the tragedy that occurred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. We are very proud of our students' initiative ... they handled the protest with care, compassion, and sense of responsibility. Bravo!
