Advices from Faith and Practice
“We know ourselves as individuals but only because we live in community. Love, trust, fellowship, selflessness are all mediated to us through our interdependence. Just as we could not live physically without each other, we cannot live spiritually in isolation. We are individually free but also communally bound. We cannot act without affecting others and others cannot act without affecting us. We know ourselves as we are reflected in the faces, action and attitudes of each other.”
— Janet Scott, 1980

Dear Friends,
Many thanks to all of our families, faculty and staff who donated their valuable time, energy and funds to make the Fall Fest such an overwhelming success.  Special thanks to Ashley Doyle and Jodi Stewart-Moore, co-chairs of the event for their seemingly boundless energy and creativity.

On Tuesday, October 23rd, we will be holding our annual Curriculum Night for parents.  This is a yearly event which gives you the opportunity to explore one area of our curriculum in depth.  This year, the topic will be Reading.  We will begin with a presentation/discussion about reading.  Then, we will have a “Reading Fair” in which parents can learn from each teacher about our Curriculum as it relates to Reading.  Parents will have the opportunity to go to any station they like and stay as long or as short as they like.   We really want you to come, so to make it as easy as possible, childcare with dinner will be provided as well as light dinner fare for parents.  We’ll begin at 6 p.m. and end promptly at 7:30 p.m.  RSVP to the front office so we can arrange for child care.  We look forward to seeing you on October 23rd for Curriculum Night.

With gratitude,
Nancy
