Please note that the doors to the School Auditorium for the Opening Day Assembly will open at 10:15 am. The all-school Opening Day Assembly includes the rose ceremony, a lovely tradition whereby the high school seniors welcome the new first graders into the lower school as they begin their journey through the grades. No video taping or photography please. All parents - especially new parents and 1st grade parents - are welcome to refreshments in the Main Entrance Lobby prior to the assembly. (If you are here that morning, we encourage you to drop by the Business Office to replenish your child's Cafeteria and Bookstore accounts. Extra help will be on hand in the Business Office.)
