Food Drive for ArtAID: Help Fill the Cart - Accepting donations through Monday, Dec. 6!


This year's ArtAID event in Foster Gallery will highlight the issue of hunger from a local and national standpoint.


Gratitude and Viral Marketing by Ben Snyder, Head of Upper School

For me, I remember it starting with Nicole Silver – a student in my Genocide class about 10 years ago. I know she wasn’t the first student to thank me on her way out the door after class, but somehow her thanks resonated as a bit more sincere – even though it happened literally every day as we wrapped up another lesson.


“Giffordleaks” from the Middle School by John Gifford, Head of the Middle School

It seems that perhaps the most interesting information is the information that we are not supposed to know about. The collection of “inside information” keeps numerous people employed, from gossip columnists and paparazzi, to serious journalists and Wikileak founder Julian Assange.


Let's Bring Back Phones with Cords! by Erika Guy, Dean of Students

For a long time, I thought that the single greatest triumph of my adolescence was convincing my parents that I needed a phone extension in my upstairs bedroom.
