Attention Freshman, Sophomores, and Juniors – The PSAT is being given Today. Please plan to report to your assigned testing room by

8:05am. Rosters with rooming assignments are already posted at both the front and back entrances of the Upper School. You should plan on bringing number 2 pencils, erasers, and may choose to bring a scientific or graphing calculator.


The weather is great and lends itself to desiring to be outside.  While the new central lawn is inviting, we cannot play on it on a regular basis for now because the grass still needs to develop a stronger root system. Please know that we need to stay off the lawn until further notice. Spring will be beautiful on the lawn!
