Dear Parents of Lower School Students,

The 2019-2020 school year has come to an end. It is very bittersweet as we the faculty were not able to have the traditional send off to summer for the students. Let me reiterate how much we have missed your students being on campus. Thank you for staying in contact with the teachers, for your support, and for allowing us to help educate and love your children.

Usually, the teachers give you the summer reading assignments so that you all can have the information readily available. While we will send you the information, we thought you may need a little break. You will receive a letter in July which informs you of your student’s homeroom, school supplies, a calendar, etc. You will also find the summer reading assignments in the July letter. However, we will post the assignments on the website soon so that if your child is ready, he or she can begin. Please reach out to the teachers or me if you have any questions. In advance, thank you for encouraging your student to read. Even if he/she does not begin the assignments right away, reading is always an a positive activity. Please encourage your child to read this summer.

Blessings,

Laura Kinslow
