Looking Ahead

Thursday June 14th - JS Games Morning hosted by the YPA -- NEW!
We look forward to a fun-filled morning at Oriole Park. Parents are asked to ensure their children have a hat, water bottle and proper sunscreen and are welcome to join us as volunteers, or to attend if their schedule allows. The YPA is looking for some more volunteers for the Junior School Games Morning on Thursday, June 14th. It will be a fun-packed morning with games, sports, crafts and more at Oriole Park! Please see link with sign-up options. If you have any questions, please contact Lara Teoli ( or Kate Corrin (, YPA Junior School Co-Chairs.

Junior School Friday Assembly (10:45 in Junior School Gym) 
This year, in place of our Grade 1 to Grade 5 students attending the larger, longer closing ceremonies at the Middle/Senior School, we will gather our entire Junior School student body (JK to Grade 5) for a final Friday assembly to be attended by students, teachers and staff.  The focus of this assembly will be less about ceremony and more about reflecting on our year together as a school community. While our space in the Junior School Gym is unable to accommodate parents at the final assembly, we will live stream the event for families who wish to watch and then throw our doors open to our entire parent body in the afternoon for our class parties (details below).

Junior School Class Parties (1:30-3:30)
All parents are welcome to join us for the class parties in the afternoon and then take your child(ren) home at dismissal. We do hope you will join us then!

Our staff, in collaboration with the YPA, have worked hard to incorporate these fun new ideas into our cherished traditions to create a series of end of year festivities that offer something special for everyone. We believe these changes will enable our parents, students and faculty to celebrate a wonderful year of growing and learning in a variety of settings and ways. We look forward to seeing you all very soon!
