We celebrated our Grandparents & Special Friends today at school. It’s always such a treat to have visitors in the classrooms! We were also joined by our Reading Buddies from Rydal Park.

In the spirit of collaboration, Philadelphia area LD private schools hosted Anne Ford at Delaware Valley Friends School. Center School was represented by Head of School Mindy Wawrzyniak, who had the pleasure of co-interviewing Anne Ford with Alex Brosowsky, Head of School at The Quaker School. Thank you Delaware Valley Friends for this opportunity!
We’ve got Makerspace fever at Center School! Check out this time lapse video of students and teachers building the partition for the Makerspace room. Can’t wait to see the room when it’s all set up!
