Girls’ Leadership Institute

Dawson School is very fortunate to have Simone Marean, Executive Director of The Girls’ Leadership Institute, speaking to parents of girls ages kindergarten through eighth grade on Tuesday, December 16 at 8:15 AM in Henderson Dining Hall.  Simone’s presentation called “Raising Resilient Girls” focuses on helping our daughters to talk about not-so-happy feelings, sharing mistakes, and solving problems.  Parents from grades K-6 are especially encouraged to attend the meeting.  There will a Q/A time at the conclusion of the presentation with workshop follow-up information for January and February, all at Dawson School.

Assembly and Smoothie Party

Lower School students were treated to a very special assembly on Friday, December 12.  Our Town Council sponsored a short dance program then students were treated to smoothies out on the playground.  Our thanks to both the LS Town Council and Stacy McClellan who graciously purchased the smoothies for the entire Lower School community.

Third Grade Scientists

For a three-week window of time during the month of December, third grade students have been researching a science experiment then presenting their project to the class.  Students select their own experiment, do all of the legwork and research on their own, then schedule a time with their teacher, Mrs. Faye Johnson to present.  Congratulations to all the future scientists of the third grade for their outstanding research and project design.
