The Lower School community gathered on September 2 for the annual opening picnic, which offered a relaxed way for students, teachers, and parents to break the ice before the official start of the regular school routine. The classrooms looked in order with fresh and colorful displays all set for a year of learning. And while the picnic fare and outdoor activity were decidedly kid-friendly, more than a few of the grown-ups thoroughly enjoyed the finger food, swings, and playground fun. We welcome all of our new families and look forward to a fantastic school year!
