Crazy Sox Day: On
Friday, March 7, we will be
honoring Dr. Seuss with a day-long
celebration in the library. We will be

art, and voting for our favorite Seuss
character. It's Crazy Sox Day,
so wear your wackiest pair! A special
Seuss lunch will be served. Theodore
Geisel was born in Springfield, MA 110
years ago, and went on to publish 46
books for children. His unique
characters and rhyming text have
launched many a reader. Happy Birthday

The Fifth Graders and Spring
Sports: The upper school
sports program is again welcoming 5th
graders to join our spring teams! This
year the upper school will have a chance
to try different sports before break and
make their choice. If interested, 5th
graders may take
Monday March 31 and
Tuesday April 1 to try out two
different sports. We ask that the
student make a decision and report to
on Wednesday April 2. For the
girls, the choices are lacrosse,
softball, track and field, and ultimate.
For boys, the offerings are lacrosse,
baseball, track and field, and
ultimate. Practices run from Monday to
Thursday from 3:30-4:30.
Participation in games is possible, but
will depend on the numbers of the team,
safety issues with the strength of the
opponent, and priority to upper school
athletes for playing time. The charge
is $125 for the term. Please
contact me with any questions.
Warmly, Alex Bartlett
