LS Director Letter: May 19
Posted 05/19/2017 10:00AM

Dear Lower School Parents,  

I am so thankful to be part of a community that embraces opportunity. Last week I had the opportunity to travel with our fourth graders to Camp Weaver for their annual overnight trip. I am always impressed with how eager our students are to learn. What impressed me even more, however, was the way students represented themselves and Greensboro Day School. They listened, asked questions, cooperated, encouraged each other, looked adults in the eye, had good manners, and were incredibly respectful. It is our job as teachers to develop an intellectual foundation in students, but more importantly it is our job to develop ethical and interpersonal foundations that will help them be good people. Our students are good people; they are kind and tell the truth. On this trip, fourth graders demonstrated the importance of including others, taking turns and supporting friends. You can’t find another school that values teaching students these foundations more than we do. This is carried over to our middle and upper school as well. Jennifer Ford, Upper School Dean, recently reflected on this very same thing here

Reminders:

Monday, May 22:  Late start; classes will begin at 10:15 a.m. with carpool beginning at 10 a.m.  As always, we will have our early morning drop off available beginning at 7:30 a.m.

Tuesday, May 23: Lower School Spring Concert, 7 p.m. Students in K-2nd grades will be joined by our Lower School Orchestra (grades 3 and 4) in the Sloan Theatre from 7 - 8 p.m.  All are welcome.

Tuesday, May 30: 4th Grade Celebration - This special celebration in honor of our fourth graders and will take place in the Sloan Theatre from 6:30 until 8 p.m.

Tuesday, June 6:  All School Closing - The whole school comes together to celebrate the end of the year. The yearbook will also be dedicated at this closing.

Wednesday, June 7: Lower School Closing - This end-of-year ceremony takes place in the Sloan Theatre at 9 a.m. Parents are welcome to attend this event. Seats are reserved in the balcony for parents. 

Regards, 

Laura Shue
Lower School Assistant Director
