In the tenth year of this anticipated annual tradition, the Middle School student-led Day of the Dead fiesta turned the Great Hall and Library into a corner of Mexico on Friday afternoon.  

Student Holiday on Monday

No classes will be held on Monday, November 6 as it is Teacher Conference day.
Note: As there is no adult supervision in the library or on the playground, we ask that Lower School children who are accompanying their parents at conference time wait quietly in the hallway outside the classroom. 

Around the Halls....

Check out our Media Gallery for photos of the Middle School Day of the Dead fiesta, field trips, and learning that took place at St M this week!
