As the school year ends, so does Waynflete’s version of Ben’s Blog. Thanks for your interest in the daily goings-on in Lower School, and for your consistently positive support of students and teachers. New Waynflete communications will emerge in 2017-2018, but with my departure for the International School of Helsinki, Ben’s Blog will have a new “Finnish” look.
Take care, Ben
After a week of packing up classrooms and year-end meetings, faculty gathered at Boulos House to celebrate the year and recognize departing faculty such as Louisa. It was a special occasion to wrap up the school year.
After students left school on Wednesday, teachers frantically closed up the classrooms in Founders to prepare for renovation work that begins immediately. Teachers gathered in front of Founders and Hewes to capture the moment.
4-5’ers reconvene in the gym to complete the lap sit as an entire program. Their year began with this trust-building activity and ended on a high note as they completed it once again. Students then ended their morning celebrating the departing 5th graders.
EC students ran around the playground on Wednesday as the clouds lifted and the sun returned. It was a joyous last day of the school year.
2-3’ers took the opportunity this week to celebrate and honor the Hewes Building, which has housed the 2-3 program for the past 20 years.
K-1 and 2-3 students get to spend a little more time Wednesday morning speaking and singing in Spanish with Señor Dan before summer begins.
