Hello 8th Grade Parents,

Below are a few important reminders for this week.

US Transition Zoom Meeting – Tues, May 12 7:00pm

From Cory, Izokaitis, Head of Upper School: We hope you had the opportunity to watch the video sent to you last week that introduces you to the departments in Upper School. While we would have preferred to meet you all in person, the recorded version had to work this year. What the video could not do, however, was offer an opportunity for us to have a conversation.

With that in mind, we are offering a ZOOM meeting next Tuesday evening, May 12th at 7:00 pm. Please consider joining where Mr. Dow (Academic Dean), Dr. Losambe (Dean of Students) and I can shed light on the transition and also answer questions you might have.

Here is the link for the meeting.

Closing Ceremony Photos – Alternate Photos Due Wed, May 13

The recorded closing ceremony will be available to download and view May 28 at 5:00 p.m. It will include the reading of eighth-graders’ names while displaying their school headshots. If you would like to submit an alternate photo for the video, please send the photo to Mr. Arnold by Wednesday, May 13. It should be a current photo and appropriate for school. Please include your child’s name with the photo.

Class of 2024 t-shirts – Due Wed, May 13

Robban Fleege once again has shared his amazing talent with the class of 2024 and designed an awesome t-shirt to commemorate the completion of Middle School (please see below for mock-up of the design using the fifth grade list of names for placement only). Your generous support of the Class of 2024 and PACA has enabled each student to receive their t-shirt at no cost. Parents may purchase additional shirts for $20. Please use the following links to confirm your order by May 13th.
