Our Heartfelt Thanks!
We would like to extend a very special thank you to our Lower School community for helping to make our Let’s Glow Spring Fling a tremendous success.  Our final count…160 of us gathered together for this fun-filled evening! What wonderful Lower School spirit!! We greatly appreciate all of the delicious refreshments many of you contributed. Special thanks to our Co-Chairs, Jill Millard and Missy Boss, as well as all who worked so hard to help decorate, set-up and clean up (including our Plant Operations crew, Todd deWardener, David Carter and Wayne Fougere), our photo-booth photographer, Upper School student, Heyuan Ma, and our DJ, Evan Rodriguez. Most of all, thank you to our students, whose laughter and enjoyment made the evening perfect!  Stay tuned for more event photos.
