Winter Break Arrives!

Winter Break Arrives!

Students stayed late to decorate the Upper School campus with sparkly lights. Magic!

Winter Break has arrived, and today’s 2pm assembly will include student performances and all sorts of festivities before Lark makes her long-awaited announcement that Break has begun!

We’ll be open until 4pm today, and we have loads of good books that want to be taken on vacation.  

Have you checked out the CatlinSpeak staff’s latest vlog?  They’ve got their own, special version of a holiday classic:

Last night, a group of students stayed late to decorate the whole upper school campus with sparkling strings of lights, creating a very festive and beautiful sight for us all this morning.  Thank you!

Have a restful break.

Take Me With You: Books for Winter Break

tolkienwindow

With less than two weeks to go before the big vacation, it’s time to gather up some good reading to enjoy during those gaps between visiting relatives, sleeping in, and, for the lucky ones among you, lazing about in warm sunshine.

All Things Tolkien:  Have you encountered the fictional world created by 20th century author JRR Tolkien?  This Oxford professor and language creator built enormously rich worlds peopled with orcs, wizards, hobbits, elves, and humans.  The Tolkien Society provides a biography if you’d like to learn more.

In a few weeks, the new film version of the Hobbit will be released.  Why not read some of the books before the movie comes out, and become a knowledgeable critic?

What’s new on the bookshelf? Click the titles below for reviews from GoodReads!

If you like an old, snarky classic, David Sedaris’s Holidays on Ice will make you laugh.

Come by soon, as we close for Winter Break on Friday, Dec. 14th at 4pm.  Have a restful break!
