What is the Spiral of Light?

What is the Spiral of Light?

Inside the Great Hall, the early childhood teachers will have arranged pine boughs in a large spiral, decorated with crystals, flowers and shells. When all the attendees have sat down and settled, an angel will appear, carrying a single lit candle. With this, she will enter the spiral and light the flame in the center. (more…)

New Patio Tables & Umbrellas

New Patio Tables & Umbrellas

Two new eye-catching patio tables with bench seats and umbrellas have been given to the school by the Freysinger, Dowley, and Brewer-Siljeholm families. Their gift is intended to complete the bluestone patio which was built in 2017 with community donations from the Enhancement Fund. Constructed by Forever Redwood, a California-based company, the tables are made from pieces of redwood and douglas fir in a style called Mosaic Eco-Wood. This pattern takes leftover pieces of old growth timber that are traditionally scrapped due to their small size and reclaims the wood as fine furniture.

Quad Project Starting This Week

Quad Project Starting This Week

Thanks to the inspiration of alumni parent Anita Brewer-Siljeholm and vision of the school community, the handicap parking/dismissal area will be converted into a beautiful outdoor community space. The quad project will start today and, for this reason, we will be closing the area off through mid-June. The handicap parking spots will be moved to the paved parking area closest to the pathway to the school. Some of the uses for the quad will be: an outdoor classroom, a meeting space, and rental venue for weddings and parties during the summer, fall and spring seasons. During Phase One of the quad project, to be completed by the end of this summer, a fence and path along the paved parking lot will be installed, as well as a grass area and canopy. Phase Two of the quad project will include landscaping details, new plantings, and lighting. The landscape design for the quad is on display in the community space. If you would like to be involved in the planning and fundraising for Phase Two of this project, please connect with Facilities Manager, Jack Hogan and/or Caroline Horner.  Any further questions or ideas about the quad project, please contact Jack Hogan.
