Greetings from the Upper School

April 19, 2019

Dear Upper School Families,
What a great week at The Upper School! We had a great turnout at Wednesday night’s Heritage Festival where we were able to celebrate the various cultures present in our school. On Thursday morning, we heard from our students running for the 2019-2020 student forum and we're excited to announce the newly elected leaders Thursday afternoon.
I hope that everyone has a wonderful long weekend and Easter holiday!

Best Wishes,

Matt Jacobs
Head of Upper School
