In sixth grade, students are reading Harbor Me by Jacqueline Woodson, a novel that follows the lives of six teenage students who are given the opportunity to be in a classroom by themselves for one hour every week. All of the students come from diverse backgrounds with complicated stories and perspectives.
Every Tuesday before school, a group of Upper School students rotate to lead sessions teaching math to third grade students through fun games and activities. Senior Emerson S. leads the Math Mentors Program with support from her former third grade teacher, Darlene Urwin, and current math teacher, Tami Woldman.
