Book Recommendation for Parents:

Many of our faculty members just completed a book study of Boys Adrift: The Five Factors Driving the Growing Epidemic of Unmotivated Boys and Underachieving Young Men by Leonard Sax, MD, PhD. Dr. Sax is also the author of Girls on the Edge: The Four Factors Driving the New Crisis for Girls. Our teachers gained some wonderful insights into what challenges are faced by many of today’s adolescent males and how to address those in the classroom. In the spirit of Read Across America Day, we want to pass this along as a reading suggestion for parents.


From the Cafeteria:

We are excited to be introducing new menu items each month! Please continue to check the attached menus for details. March Breakfast K-8 2017.doc  March Lunch 6-8 2017.doc
