Lower School Council Welcome Letter

To new Lower School students, welcome to The Historic Campus! To returning students, welcome back! 

We are Catherine Rosenberg, Jill Cross, Cheryl Rudbeck and Ramya Shah and we jointly serve on the Lower School Council (LSC) of the Parents’ Association (P.A.). Lower School is an exciting time, and third grade in particular, with the move to the Historic Campus! We partner with the Lower School Principal, Assistant Principal, and Dean of Students to ease this transition and help families feel connected within the Lower School community. We are pleased to assist you through the LSC and look forward to an enjoyable school year.

We will host ongoing opportunities for parents to volunteer and connect with Lower School Faculty, community, and school-at-large. Please see the schedule below for August and September events, and as always, please check Lab’s E-news and the PA website for announcements and updates.
