Dear Upper School Parents/Guardians:

I hope that your family had a restful and fun winter break. We’ve been getting back up to speed on campus, and everyone seems back in the swing of things as we end our first week back.

Two highlights of the week, which are worth asking your children about, were the “Wellness Week” events that have taken place and the assembly program we had yesterday with Alan Lokos.

Mr. Lokos shared a stunning story of events in his life and how he was able to persevere through them. I won’t spoil the story by telling you about this, and if you have not heard about it, please ask your child. Here is a link to a recent CBS News segment that featured Mr. Lokos:  http://www.cbsnews.com/news/the-quiet-power-of-meditation/

I wanted to alert you to a couple of things that are time sensitive.


One is that we have extended to Monday the deadline for the spring athletic trips. If you are planning for your child to be on the softball, golf, baseball, or lacrosse trips, please return your form and deposit on Monday.  Registration forms for the trips are available online at www.d-e.org/athletics or by clicking on the links here:


Also attached by clicking here you will find the exam schedule for January, and the general information for the three days of exams, January 21,22, and 25.   Next week, the specific rooms and proctors will be available for students to view.
