2017 All-School Summer Read
Every other year, we participate in an all-school Community Read project. This year's Community Read is focused on the story of Mildred and Richard Loving.
- Lower School students will read The Case for Loving, written by Selina Alko and illustrated by Sean Qualls, on their return to school.
- Middle and Upper School students, faculty, staff, families, and community members were asked to read Loving vs Virginia by Patricia Hruby Powell over the summer.
Look for a number of related activities this fall including author visits, discussions, and a community movie night.

Author Kate Hannigan joined us for a terrific day on April 5th. She engaged 4th, 5th and 6th graders with her stories and thoughts about reading, writing, research and resilience. She also shared her "scroll of doom" a 65 foot compilation of the many rejection letters she got on the way to becoming a successful author.
