Focusing on “their spark,” or what interests them, the recent fourth grade collaboration focused on how kids can help achieve the UN sustainability goals in their own communities and lives.
On occasion, concerns may arise regarding a student’s academic, social, or emotional well-being. We encourage a team approach in working with our students. The Lower School Directors, Director of Student Support Services, parents, homeroom teacher, counselor, nurse, learning specialists, and reading specialists may all be part of that team. Homeroom teachers meet with the counselor, nurse, and specialists whenever consultation or direct support is needed. The Learning Specialist and Counselor also consult to parents regarding students' academic experience and progress, developmental issues, and referrals to outside supports.
The School Nurse’s office is located on the first floor of the Bridgman House.
