ADVISORY AGENDA 10.17.19 (Math Drops)

“No kind action ever stops with itself.  One kind action leads to another. Good example is followed. A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees.  The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves.” -Ameila Earhart

Attention Upper School students! Cannon is making a mini-movie for marketing purposes and we need YOU! We will be shooting a scene on Wednesday, Oct. 23 on the Green from 3:15 – 5:15 PM (weather permitting). This will be worth TWO service hours, but you must be able to commit for the entire time. Plus, you get to be on the LAWN. If you are interested in participating, please e-mail Mrs. Reiss at and she will give you details.

Math Café will be CLOSED TODAY after school.  We will see you again after Fall Break!
