Students Enjoy New Spaces on Campus
Students are enjoying the new and renovated spaces made possible by the generous support of donors through the Our Common Bond campaign. From the moment students are welcomed into the new Upper School entrance they are greeted by inviting spaces, and it has been exciting to watch them use and enjoy the new facilities. View photos and a video from the dedication ceremony held on Aug. 27, and learn more about the campaign.
