Learners inspiring learners
This week, students and faculty have been focused on maintaining academic learning expectations while also putting the final touches on a very important show, the annual holiday program at EAB! Students from K3 all the way to Grade 12, Ms. Celiane, and teachers are helping to prepare a show that will inspire us all to take risks, demonstrate new musical skills that have developed throughout the first semester, and to be on a stage or sing in front of a large audience. Please be sure to arrive early on Saturday, December 10 for the 6PM start of EAB 55 Years: Disney Magic. We will not only celebrate our students but also 55 years of our learning community!
Please share this live stream link with family and friends so they can also share the magic.
Students should arrive at 5:30PM and go straight to their classroom to meet their teachers.

K5 & 1st grade: Traditional costume from any country
2nd & 3rd grade: Pajamas and accessories

Engaged in learning
Did you know that we require children to have permission from their teacher in order to use the Lower School Office Phone? Our goal is that children are spending the majority of their time learning with their peers and teachers. For some types of minor issues, we allow children to call home in the Lower School Office but for most needs, we ask that they are resolved before or after school. This allows children to spend their time learning and also helps to nurture responsibility and self-regulation (e.g. managing emotions when they have to wait until after school to organize a play-date). Either the nurse or a member of the Lower School Office will always contact family members if there is a significant need or if your child is injured while at school.
Friday, December 16: Last day of school with 11:30AM dismissal for students
