Bravo, Jonas! Encore!
Stay tuned for one more performance.

Natalie DiBello and our WSMF mask makers have delivered the first batch to Mt. Auburn Hospital. From Natalie: “Donations to hospitals started going out this week. Here are some happy nurses at Mount Auburn Hospital. They are wearing the cloth masks I made over their surgical masks for extra protection.” Thank you to everyone!
School Director Search
We are excited to share the prospectus co-created by our governance committee to launch the search for our next School Director. As many of you know, we have the support of a search firm that is investing its time to help us navigate the search process. The firm recommended that our first step in recruiting and hiring for this critical role is to ask our community members to get the word out through their personal and professional networks. Please view the complete prospectus on our website and keep us informed if you know anyone who may be a great fit for our school as we build momentum towards a bright future.

Forts & Cozy Nooks
Early Childhood Faculty Kate Hill has provided inspiration and information on making tucked away forts, nooks, and cozy spots to play with dolls and stuffed animals, make puzzles, color, enjoy books, and day dream. This is a fun building project you can do together. A bit of practical wisdom is once you’ve built it, your child will snuggle in for independent play. Read more on The Chalkboard.
