Lower School Bulletin

Lower School Bulletin 6/3

HAPPENING NOW

Summer assignments for rising 3rd graders and rising 4th graders will be sent out in the next few weeks.

As you may be aware, Angela Marks, our lower school learning specialist, is leaving FSS to start her own non-profit. We are aware that many of you have children who have benefitted from their work with Angela and probably want to wish her well. A group of parents thought it would be wonderful if we could capture our appreciation for all Angela has done. To that end, they will be creating a scrapbook for her. If you want to add a letter, note, poem, picture, drawing (kid art is the best art), or a card - anything that captures your appreciation for Angela - we would be happy to include it. You can drop it off in the Lower School office with Susan Hagner by June 4th.
