Annual Summer Reading Book Assembly

On October 1, the Lower School held its annual summer reading book assembly. During the summer, each grade reads a different book. When school begins, teachers and students focus on interdisciplinary curriculum related to their book. In the assembly, students share something about their grade's books with the school - often in the form of related songs, drawings or oral presentations. "This is one of my all-time favorite assemblies," said Principal Annette Raphel.
