Rock the Block: A Thank You
A special thank you to the many families and friends who came to celebrate Rock the Block this past weekend. This was our most successful event to date. The Parents Association, Rock the Block Committee, and all volunteers worked very hard to make this great day happen, and as a school and community, we are grateful for everyone's contributions.
I would like to acknowledge and thank our local business partners who contributed food donations: Artopolis, Che Bella, Fairway, Famiglia Pizzeria, Havana Central and Mel's Burger. These companies share our commitment to supporting the neighborhood and we are proud to partner with them.
Be sure to look at The Gallery to view hundreds of photos from the day, and to post any you may have taken yourself. As Rock the Block demonstrated, when many people come together to create, the results are only enhanced.
Thank you again. We look forward to our School events coming up this year, and to Rock the Block 2013.
- Amani Reed
Family Conferences: Tuesday, Nov. 6
A reminder that family conferences are coming up. Please note, there will be no school on Tuesday, Nov. 6 to accommodate them. Please return your child’s MAP questionnaire to classroom teachers/advisors, if you have not done so already, so they can review responses and be prepared to discuss. Children in grades 1-8 participate in conferences, which in the fall are focused on goal-setting.
Winter Arts and Crafts Sale: Call For Artists
The School will hold its annual Winter Arts and Crafts Sale on Thursday, Dec. 13 from 3:30 - 6:30 pmin the Art Studio on the fifth floor. This is a chance for our talented community to share work, and an opportunity to buy local, handmade goods directly from artists during the holiday season.
We are looking for artists who would like space at this event. To sell work, you must be an adult directly affiliated with The School (including faculty and guardians), and all items sold must be handmade. Tables have included ceramics, paintings, drawings, photographs, fiber arts, jewelry, stationery, handmade toys, and more.
If you are interested, please email Eleana Pellegrino with what you would like to sell. Artist signup will be on a first-come, first-served basis due to space restraints, and each type of craft (ceramics, paintings, etc.) will be closed after four artists have signed up, to keep the sale balanced.
