Gym A was occupied by green screen filming on Tuesday. Students were invited to come dance, perform special tricks, or simply wave on camera for the 2023 “You Got In” video. The video, which will welcome newly admitted students and families later in the year, is directed, choreographed, and produced by students.
There were no Upper School classes on Wednesday due to winter parent teacher conferences. For more information regarding signing up for conferences, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
