Lower School Notes for May 25-29, 2015

People will accept your ideas much more readily if you say that Benjamin Franklin said them first.


Closing Ceremony

For the first time in its history, Dawson Lower School students concluded their year with the Closing Ceremony in the Arts Center Theater.  This venue provides greater seating for all and allows our students to be “on stage” for one final performance and recognition for the 2014-15 school year.  Many thanks go out to the faculty who coordinated the program, Mrs. Donna Deininger, Mr. Scott Raedeke, Mrs. Kim Haines, Ms Kristen Medler, and Mrs. Diane Yelvington.  At the end of the program, students were dismissed to their parents, families for the summer.

Lower School Field Day

Congratulations on a very successful end of school year Field Day for our Lower School students.  While the weather did not cooperate, the morning activities were great fun for our students inside the gym complex.  Stations were run with the guiding hands of our sixth grade students.  Great fun was had by all and a warm round of thanks goes out to Mrs. Katie Boyle, Dawson’s Lower School Physical Education Teacher, for the great planning she put into this annual event.

Start of Summer Programs

Each summer, Dawson has a full slate of summer programs.  The first of the summer activities will begin on Monday, June 1 and run through the end of July.  For more information, go to the school’s website, home page.
