CommuniTeach and Day of Service
Perhaps the best feedback came from the kids, who were all smiles.
Head of Upper School Flynn Corson offered “heartfelt gratitude for the inspiration that was our day of service. We gave fuller meaning to the concept of Community Service today as our entire Upper School community lent helping hands to so many other communities beyond the boundaries of our campus. I’ve already heard so many of our students raving about the fun they had and the differences they made. Nothing could be more gratifying than witnessing the gratification they experienced through giving of themselves.”

–Rawm being unbelievably slippery in a game of playground tag
–Ima and Bruno teaching gamesmanship, respect, and manners during kickball
–A chorus line with Henry, Charlie, and Lars to “Fly me to the Moon” on the (chilly!) walk down
–Hope helping to build bridges out of spaghetti and marshmallows with a crew of 2nd graders hanging on her every word
–Mr. A. breaking every step-count record in existence with his shoelaces tied together with an entire lower school chasing after him (that’s a video that everyone should see)
“The ninth graders’ work at the lower campus was meaningful because our service fulfilled the school’s motto life through service. We set an example for the younger children about helping people, therefore, when they grow up and have the ability, they will cherish the sense of caring through service.
