Uniforms and Dress Code Sep-27 to Oct-31

As Term 1 starts coming to a close we would like to remind you of the uniform and dress code guidelines. With the new company we have allowed some leeway in the uniform guidelines as we all got any new pieces shipped, exchanged, purchased from Kula Threads.  As of Term 2, all students should have the compliant jackets and unform pieces.  Kula Threads have just a very few orders that will be filled by then.  If you have anything that needs to be exchanged please do so with the company.  Girls who have been in the old jackets, or ones that are not monogramed with the school logo have been asked to get the compliant ones.  

Also please review the free dress guidelines as to appropriate Friday wear. 

Thank you!



German class Oct-07 to Oct-21

Guten Tag,

Thank you for everyone who has shown interest in my upcoming German class. Our first class will be on October 21st at 3:15 PM (until 4 PM) in the French Room (BH6). It will run every Monday throughout Term 2 (except Nov 11 [Veterans Day] and Nov 25 [I won't be on campus that day].

So far we have 7 students and 2 teachers joining us but you can still join as well if interested. Just let me know.

This class will be a basic intro to German language, customs, music and art. German is spoken by more than 95 million people in the world and this class will be a soft academic (no homework) class :-)

Ich freue mich euch allen Deutsch beizubringen (I am looking forward to teaching you all German).
