Message from the Principal

Dear Families,


The faculty have just finished the third term checklists, and they will be online at the beginning of the week.  Look for an email on Monday.


As we head into break, here's a checklist for the next two weeks.  I hope you and your children get to travel to:


●       The outdoors – wherever it may be

●       A museum

●       Longwood Gardens – always plenty of places to roam there

●       Your couch – with a stack of books

●       The movie theater  - to see A Wrinkle in Time, if age appropriate

●       The Westtown lake – to hike the lake trail

●       An art store  - for sketch books, new markers and watercolors

●       The kitchen  - to cook up a new or favorite dinner

●       A coffee shop  - to linger together – maybe even to "Westtown's" coffee shop, The Buttery in Malvern

●       Your favorite playground

●       A friend's house

●       A bookstore to reload the couch


In the next two weeks, I hope you discover something new with your children, see something you have not seen before, laugh and have the time to just be.  May your break be filled with curiosity, play, sleep and exercise.


Onward to spring, despite the snow of the last week,
