Greetings and Happy Mother’s Day!

 

Thank you for the outpouring of appreciation to our teaching team last week.  The treats and treasures you sent added joy and buoyancy to each day.

 

Congratulations to junior Annabel Swansey whose piece entitled “The Fencer” was selected as 3rd Place Winner in the 2022 Virtual Congressional Art Competition for North Carolina’s Fourth District.  Her artwork will be on display in Congressman Price’s office in Durham.

 

BEHIND THE SCENES:

 

On this day that honors mothers, it is of note that Mother Nature ruled last week!  In spite of our preparedness for contingencies, both the Evening of the Arts and the Upper School Dance had to be rescheduled.  I can’t thank our team enough for their winning attitudes to regroup and re-plan and the students for being such good sports about it all.
