Today, Middle School students worked diligently during math class to earn raffle tickets by answering trivia and solving problems related to pi as well as completing review assignments. In the afternoon we held a raffle. If a student's ticket was chosen, they got to pie the math teacher (or Mr. Krebs) of their choice. Happy Pi Day!


Fifth graders had quite the day today as they toured the National Inventors Museum. They learned the differences between copyright, trademark, patent and intellectual property and completed a fun scavenger hunt!

Prekindergarten's field trip to the Leesburg fire station was quite the adventure! The students loved seeing the big trucks and all the interesting equipment, as well as meeting the real-life heroes who fight fires.


It’s International Women’s Day! Cheers to all of the incredible women in our lives, including our Head of School Dr. Odell, Early Years Director Mrs.Cross, and Middle School Director Mrs.Stavish.

Let It Snow!

Our kindergarteners through third graders have created beautiful winter artwork that is currently lining our hallways in the lower school. The children have used a variety of techniques including dry brush, collage, and salt and watercolor to create an interesting gallery of art. We are all hoping it will serve as inspiration for our weather to give us a few flakes!

Third grade loved presenting their Explorer projects this week. Students completed a written biography of a famous explorer and then pretended to be that explorer when they presented information about their lives and accomplishments.


It’s Groundhog Day! The students in first grade realized that Punxsutawney Phil’s name is the same rhythm pattern that they have been learning in Music class with quarter notes and eighth notes and created a song to celebrate!
